5 X 7 Merry and Bright

I know your expecting to hear this...but I love how this card turned out...I really...really do...the splash of Gold Card Stock makes it look so elegant...this card is definitely in the running for my Christmas Cards this year...Shhhhh!!!!. 
 
 
 
The Gold Cording is from Stamping Up...they sold it in Silver and Bronze also...I'm very cheap when it comes to using it since they don't sell it anymore...it's not thick...but it is very strong...a really nice quality cording...too bad it's not available anymore. 
 
 
 
The white shimmery card stock that I used is also another retired S/U fav...I must downsize all my stuff...so I might as well use it...not doing any good sitting in the draw. 


 
 
I don't know where I bought the package of Metallic Card Stock...it has been a part of my stash that I was afraid to use because it's so pretty...I really like the Gold...BTW...the package also had Silver...and Bronze...sounds like the Olympics...LOL.
 
 
 
 
 Here is the recipe:
 
Stamp sets: bright Christmas and delightful decorations.
*****
Card stock: shimmery white...cherry cobbler...gold metallic...white...and white printer paper.
*****
