A striped card set....

At a recent craft fair, I bought a card kit from Close To My Heart that had card bases and the other bits and pieces to make 10 cards.  It was a Thank You set, but I decided I was going to to use it for Christmas cards. 





I cut the cards in half to make a panel.  Two were added to Kraft bases and two onto cream bases.  The kit had silver sparkle pieces but I added some gold onto one of them.  All were embossed sentiments onto the black card. Stamps are from Kaisercraft and Bo Bunny

I'm entering this into the following challenges
City Crafter Challenge - stripes
Virginia's View - Metallics.

Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate all your visits.

You have been so creative, Dawn! I love the gold/silver glittery paper (even with the chalkboard look) that you incorporated into your designs! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “All About Metallic” Challenge!
