Red and Gold ?

I just thought you might like to see our lovely mountain.

It's hiding under the affection cloud and was like that all day on Thursday
but the sun was shining and it looked just beautiful.
Now it is cold again and the mountain has a mantle of snow again.

I have come up with quite a simple card today.

I embossed the gold foil card very carefully as it is likely to split and 
the white card shows through, then cut out the center panel
to put the heat embossed greeting behind.
It really didn't need anything more as the surround is very busy.
Not that happy with it but it does look better than the picture.

This is for 

Thanks for dropping in you are most welcome.

  1. Love all the gold, beautiful, Margaret - thanks for linking for CHNC challenge extra for August - hope to see you again soon. x

  2. It's beautiful Margaret! Love that foil. I've been afraid to work with it for the very reason you stated. Thanks so much for joining us this week at 52CCT and sharing your beautiful mountain picture.

  3. SO elegant, Margaret! LOVE the embossing on the gold--such a gorgeous frame! Thanks for joining us at 52CCT! :)

  4. Well I think it's perfectly lovely. The design is clean and simple, but so very elegant! Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!

  5. The gold is very elegant against the red and white! I haven't tried embossing foil sheets, but you've made it look terrific. Thanks for joining us once again this week at 52{C}CT!

  6. Your card is beautiful - just saw it over at 52CCT - but I know how you feel. I sometimes feel the same that I am just not so happy with the outcome. The embossed ornaments and snowflakes are just lovely!

  7. What a lovely festive card Margaret, the embossing on the gold foil looks wonderful! Thanks so much for joining us at 52 {C}CT, it's always nice to see you! Ruth x
