Golden Highlights

The DCM challenge this week is Golden Highlights.

I stamped the image on cream cardstock, then mounted on some wonderfully glittery and shimmer gold paper, and again onto some more cream cardstock, I rounded all the ends with a corner punch before mounting them on the base rich textured green card. I then cut away an inch off the right hand side of the front of the card. On the now visible rear of the card I cut some slits and threaded through the ribbon.

Stamp - Paper Inspirations Thomas Nast Santa #2
Ink - Graphite Black Brilliance
