A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Gold and Shining

For two challenges - Jingle Belles "Baby it's Gold (or Silver or Copper) Outside" and Less is More "Let It Shine".

I went with lots of shiny gold.

A very quick CAS card!  The dove is die cut in the same gold as the card base, and the sentiment is stamped in gold. The white panel is die cut with a stitched rectangle and popped up on fun foam.

I'm happy to do some simple designs to rebuild my stash after my very successful fundraiser last weekend cleaned me out!

Stamps - SU sentiment
Ink - Delicata Golden Glitz
Paper - gold shimmer and white cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Penny Black dove die, Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die, fun foam
