This week at the Meljen's Designs challenge, the theme is Red, Green, and Gold. This is my entry for their challenge.
I used the image Frosty Face which is a freebie and is available on the website. The sentiment is another freebie. I colored Frosty with alcohol markers (some Copic, some not.) Coloring something that is supposed to be black is not as easy as you would think, but I am happy with the way it turned out. I used gold paper to mat the images. Instead of using traditional red and green, I used Bravo Burgandy and Always Artichoke cardstock from Stampin' Up. I embossed the Always Artichoke with my Cuttlebug using the Snow Dots folder. I am not sure how I ever lived without a Cuttlebug!! I used a QuicKutz die to make the gold border around the sentiment. A little gold ribbon and some gold brads from my stash and the card is finished.
