White and gold look so elegant together! Since the holidays are all about sparkle too, I used one of my favorite glitter techniques and I’m sharing a quick and easy tutorial with you HERE.
As for the very layered and beautiful center of the card, I started out with an intricate die cut (see tutorial HERE) and continued building layers, with large snowflake die cuts and finally with a large handmade poinsettia (that I tried to color as natural looking as possible). I added several pearls and stamens and also crinkle ribbon around the poinsettia to give the card an even more elegant and delicate look. I mounted this very embellished mat on a gold layer (after I distressed it’s edges) and finally I mounted it on a white 5 1/2″ card base.
