A Quick and Easy Christmas Card With Zing

Hi There!!!  I'm not sure if zing is the right word but this card sure does have a pop because of the beautiful embossed metallic along with the glitter tape.  (hmmm, maybe pizzazz would be better)

Isn't this quote wonderful?  We all need a Christmas heart .. every day of the year!!!  This is one of the new Christmas stamps - Let Us Remember.  

The gold paper is Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Metallic Paper.  I die cut a rectangle (ECD - Garden Notes Frame It Stitched Rectangles) from the paper and then embossed it with a 3D folder (Sizzix - Tim Holtz - Kaleidascope).  I added just a bit of Distress Ink (Festive Berries) around the edges.   

The quote is stamped in black on white cardstock - a piece smaller than the gold paper but larger than the die cut rectangle.  This way I could stamp the quote and then line up the paper behind the opening.  Glitter tape was added before attaching it.  I cut another piece of white a bit bigger than the gold, distressed the edges and layered the gold on top after adding the glitter tape as shown.  A red folded card and a poinsettia and it's done.  

I hope you like this quick card!!!  Have a wonderful week!!!

Hugs, Wanda
