CCC Sleigh!

Hello Everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.

We have rather a nice day up here in the North, s bit of sunshine, although now it's disappearing. Have you noticed that the daylight is getting longer? Spring won't be long.

Thank you all so much for commenting on my last card, I do love reading your comments and you are all very kind in your remarks.

I'm here with the second of our Christmas Card Club challenges and it's the choice of our very own Maureen and she asked to see a card with a sleigh, so I've used one of my favourite stamps from Papermainia and embossed it with gold WOW EP.  I had three go's at this, I'm not all that good with the old embossing powder. Anyway, having finally managed it I mounted it on to red and gold card and then on to an embossed card blank. I've used and Embossialicious Folder. added some red ribbon and red gems and job done. No idea why I just wanted to keep to the red and gold theme, but I rather like it.
I use this stamp every year and it's usually reserved for someone special, and have coloured it in all sorts of colours, this is the first time I've just embossed it.

Just a fairly quick post from me today and now going to schedule this for going live tomorrow when you can see all the other cards made by the other CCC members, where every card will be wonderful, and this time around we have a new member who many of you will know and perhaps even follow, Sandy who does some fabulous work, especially journal pages.

Going now to have a tour around your blogs, so I will see you soon, take care everybody,

Beautiful Kate -- thank you so much for telling about this club. I did post but I have to admit, my husband helped me. I even have the list of members posted on my side bar. I did not make a single Christmas card in 2015 - this year will be different.
Such a fancy sleigh and your embossing looks wonderful!

This is a gorgeous stamp and a lovely large one too, I know because I have this also and it makes a beautiful statement on a card. I love your gold embossed one here and pretty red and white mats and layers.

Lovely gold gleams on this pretty sleigh image. Looks so lovely against the white embossed & scallop shape of the card. I like the deckled edge of the focal image, shows off so well against the red & gold matting too. We did get some snow, and in our area, it's not that often, so it's a Big Deal. Thankfully nothing really bad, just enough to give the kids a good time playing outside, and forcing most of us to take some 'stay in the house' time. Fun to watch it, when you don't have to get out in it should you choose not to do so. Thanks for thinking of us, and TFS this lovely card. Well done on Mo's theme. Hugs

Your sleigh looks very classy in the gold embossed and just putting it with the red was a great idea. I like that combination. Must try red with gold myself!! Using the embossed folder or the base just finishes your card off niclely . Hugs Mrs A.

Sue said...

Very Elegant, Kate. Love the sleigh in gold and the beautiful embossed background.
