Green and Gold colour challenge

This week at Less is More, Challenge #240 is a colour challenge:  Green and gold.  A previous time this colour combo came up, I patriotically chose an Australian theme, but not this time - I have used a Christmas die for my card.


I used the Couture Creations die:  Bubble Christmas Tree, using the negative space as a stencil and gold heat embossing the outline of the tree.  The colour of the embossed 'shadow' unfortunately does not match the die cut Noel - but I was running out of time to search for an alternative.

Die:  Bubble Christmas Tree, and SU Noel
Colour:  Zig watercolour markers
Card:  SU Whisper White, glimmer paper

Thanks so much for visiting!

  1. A clever idea to use the negative of the die and the gold embossing looks so pretty and adds a lovely contrast. Very modern and creative. Thanks for your kind comments on my blog x

  2. Beautiful. What a great start to the Christmas stash. Love the "Noel" die and great use of your made stencil. I wouldn't have noticed the slight difference if you hadn't mentioned it! Until next time.
