ALL IS CALM … In Black & Gold

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a beautiful card that showcases one of this years hottest trends: Black and Gold! This is another of the swap cards made for our Holiday Stampin’ Retreat. Our guest stamper today is Anne.


This layered Whisper White card has just the right amount of black and gold to make this card so elegant. I love the textured background using our new “Softly Falling” embossing folder.

The banners were created using the Triple Banner punch and highlight the “Festival of Tree’s” stamp set and “Tree” punch. All three items can be found in the main Stampin’ Up! catalog. The Gold Cord Trim that adds that touch of glimmer to the card can be found in the Holiday catalog on page 24.

The greeting comes from the “Wonderland” stamp set … very popular stamp set this year.  Check it out, you’ll find it on page 23 of the Holiday catalog.

The star and gold banner were created using the gold Foil Sheets in the main catalog. This gorgeous card was then topped off with the pretty pearls.


What do you think of this new trend of Black & Gold? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for dropping in today.

Hope your day is a good one.
