Merry Monday Red & Gold

This week's challenge at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge is to use red and gold.


Sadly, I really struggle with gold - even on Christmas cards and all of their golden possibilities.  I actually cringe a little when I think about using it, consequently the creative process is hampered before it even begins.  I don't why I have such a problem with gold.  I look at the Merry Monday design cards and they are gorgeous.  The cards in the gallery are beautiful too.  But when it comes time to create something, I'm stuck.  

So I decided just to grab some stamps that I hadn't used yet - stamp some in gold and some in red, leave a lot of fresh white space, and call it good!  It turns out - I don't hate it!!

MM Gold with Red



Thanks to Merry Monday for pushing me into the use of gold!!

You make your card sound so simple but let me tell you it is a classic example of CAS - and I love it. The Nordic touch is delightful.

This sweet little tree looks so sweet in gold, Kim! Love those red deer and the wonky stitching too! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Merry Monday!
