One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

 Welcome friends to our mid month reminder to make your CAS Christmas card using silver and gold!
Those two colors brought to us by Julia are sure inspiring elegant cards, aren't they?

For this card I used an embossing folder by Darice and my Spellbinders Glimmer Hot foil plate (Essential Dual Lines Rectangle) for the sentiment and the GOLD outline. The ornament is Sunny Studios Retro Ornaments stamp set embossed with silver ep.
I have one more just because I am rebuilding my stash and so much easier to do more than one when the products are out on my desk!

This is another PTI Brilliant Baubles gold embossed.
I once again used the Essential Dual Lines Rectangle Glimmer Plate by Spellbinders for the gold frame and then framed that with Spellbinders Hemstitch Rectangles.
My ornament cap and hanging string are embossed with silver ep as is my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!  I hope you have been inspired and I will look for you in the gallery!  Have a fabulous day friends!
Heart Hugs, friends!
