Muse: Keep it Sweet and Simple

Hello Everyone,
I am thrilled that I was to see that I was a top three featured member over at Muse! You can see my card here. This week the challenge is to keep it sweet and simple with this card as our inspiration:

I am taking my inspiration from the simple colour scheme and the tag focal image. I decided on a white on white with a pop of red and green. I mounted the focal sentiment on a central panel to mimic the tag. Here is my card:
I die cut the fabulous Avery Elle sentiment from some beautiful gold foil paper. The holly is part of the sentiment die and I simply coloured the leaves with a green Wink of Stella and the berries with a red one. The background panel is embossed with a holly embossing folder. Here is a look at the gorgeous golden foil paper.
I am thrilled with this simple card.

Thanks for stopping by - I love hearing your feedback.

Happy Stamping,


  1. This is such a super card. Your embossing is terrific - it's one of those cards that you just want to touch!
    Love the gold foil sentiment too.
    Thanks for playing over at Muse this week.

  2. Pretty background embossing and love that large greeting!

  3. Wow! That sheen on that sentiment is amazing and the embossing looks fantastic! Beautiful card!

  4. I think this is really beautiful Christmas card. I love that it is very traditional with red, green and gold but still not too traditional. Love the layers and the fact that you didn't make a replica from the inspiration card! You inspired me also to do something very different! Thank you!

  5. Great take on Caroline's card and I especially like the embossed background x

  6. Classic and gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us at Muse!

  7. Beautiful Christmas card! Love the embossed background!
