Silver and Gold Greetings …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

OK … so how many of you did I stump with my “Stay Gold” comment or wonder who the heck Johnny and Ponyboy were?  It’s from the movie “The Outsiders” …

The Outsiders is a 1983 American drama film directed by Francis Ford Coppola, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by S. E. Hinton (taken from Wikipedia)


The film is noted for its cast of up-and-coming stars, including C. Thomas Howell (who garnered a Young Artist Award), Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, and Diane Lane.

Ponyboy Curtis was played by C. Thomas Howell and Johnny Cade was played by Ralph Macchio… the main characters in the film.  I like this movie and watch it whenever it’s on.  It truly launched the careers of many of it’s cast.

Today’s card share …


Staying with the “gold” theme … I followed the same technique as yesterday, embossing the gold foil sheet but I used the “Stylish Stripes” emboss folder on today’s card.  Then I secured the beautiful “Silver 1/8″ Ribbon” along the double stripes to create a cool effect.

I promise I won’t go into the background of the holiday song … Silver and Gold sung by Burl Ives.  However, I will ask … do you know what movie that hails from???

Keeping my card simple … I just added the “Season’s Greeting” greeting from the “Joy to the World” stamp set.  Again, I heat embossed it with gold emboss powder, then backed the greeting with the Silver Foil paper.  The base of the card is Whisper White.

Many of the items used for this card are found in the Holiday catalog, and you can view by clicking on any of the “highlighted” words.


Have a great day ~
