Copper Christmas

The sketch challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is very CAS this week, featuring three squares turned on their corners.  I instantly liked it and had an idea for the sentiment at the bottom which was my starting point
The sentiment is a piece of twill ribbon and I backed it onto some paper, also featuring fabric strips.  I used copper coloured mirri board for all the matting and layering.  The stamp is an old Papermania one, and I embossed it in copper too.  The glitzy buttons are my final copper touch.  I think the green card blank sets it all off nicely.


  1. Great color combination, love the copper embossing.
