baby it's ♥GOLD♥ outside!

hello darlings, it's time for a new adventure at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥! this time we have our lovely friend and fellow belle lisa hausmann setting the prompt and she wants to see GOLD: embellies, paper, glitter, sequins, embossing, alphabets, you name a cool papercrafting supply and my guess is, it'll look even better in gold, on a christmas card, so go as crazy as you'd like! here's what i did:

patterned paper: mambi, dcwv, autumn leaves; glitter paper: doodlebug; glossy white cardstock: paper accents; doilies from my stash; tree die: sizzix; doily die: cheery lynn designs; velvet florals and leaf: petaloo; gold sentiment: best creation; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape, mini gluedots, sewing machine

i've used a few golden items: the diecut tree is composed of doily scraps interlayered with bits of doodlebug glitter-encrusted cardstock; the sentiment is one of those foil peel-off thingies; the little velvet flowers have a touch of gold glitter; and finally the background paper is a gold filigree print. i used a new-to-me challenge called sketchbook saturday, where the current offering is rather fab:

why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and see the divinely gilded awesomeness which lisa and stephanie have made, then start making your own plans to go for the gold with us!


  1. Gorgeous creation. The stitching really adds!

  2. Your doily and glitter tree is just awesome. I love how you incorporated the sketch. Beautifully done!

  3. Lauren, this is stunning and so elegant looking in all that gold! WOW! A beautiful, beautiful card.

  4. I love how you've "built" the tree - FABBY!

  5. Oh how pretty! Love this and the fabulous color combo going on here!
