Merry Christmas from Dreamweaver Stencils

Merry Christmas!!

Just a few more days until Christmas!! 

I have a super quick and easy card to share with you this morning.

Our Dream Team Color Challenge this week is Burgundy and Gold!

I have been super busy with the holiday season and I needed to make this one last card in a lurch, so I spritzed Bright Gold Memory Mist onto Burgundy cardstock and placed the Merry Christmas stencil (LL386) over the top of the mist.  I pasted with Metallic Gold Embossing Paste and set aside to dry.  When the gold paste was wet, it was a nice goldy, opaque color, when it was dry, it had dried a beautiful gold color, but not quite the color I needed for this project.  When dry, the Gold Memory Mist and the Gold Metallic paste were almost the same color and hard to see.  To solve the problem, I colored over the Metallic Paste with Copic Sketch marker R59.  I love the result.  The color of the sentiment is beautiful in person.

I hope you have a very Merry Holiday Season!!
