Golden bells

I used older stamps on this card with the Retro Rubber Challenge in mind.

I used two stamp sets in this card: SU Blended Seasons (2018) and GKD Christmas Greenery (2016). This card has a lot of gold on it as it is also part of the MISTI Monday Challenge at Splitcoast Stampers where the celebration of the 50th challenge is going on and gold is the theme.

The Blended Seasons stamp set is red rubber, so the foliage will not curve easily, so my wreath is not as round as a photopolymer stamp would produce. The gold in the bells and foliage were colored with a gold gel pen. I made my own gold paper with embossing powder.

  1. Very pretty and definitely gold. Your gold background turned out great. The wreath is lovely even if you couldn’t get the stamps to curve as you would have liked.

  2. Love the red and gold combo — it’s so elegant. The bells with your wreath are so pretty. Your gold embossed layering panel is so smooth…great job.

  3. Ohh!! Red and Gold go together so beautifully in your Christmas card, love this sweet wreath and the golden pop-up bells.
    Thank you for sharing with us at RETRO RUBBER.
    Stay healthy and safe.

  4. You got a great gold background piece which sets off the rest beautifully. I like how you shaped the wreath. Colouring is also great.
