Hi everyone! It's time for another fun challenge over at Really Reasonable Ribbon! This is my first challenge project as a proud RRR DT member and I'm super stoked to share it with you! Our second November challenge - #130 - Silver & Gold withRibbon or Trim - is in full swing this morning so come play with us! Dig into your silver and gold crafty stash and have some fun!

I created a CAS winter wonderland card using the absolutely gorgeous Diagonal Stripes Light Silver and Old Gold on White Satin ribbon from the November Ribbon Club Assortment. If you haven't seen this assortment, you really need to have a look - it's amazing!

I created this simple double loop bow with my Bow-it-All which is one of my most treasured tools in my crafty stash! You're always invited to view Bonnie's awesome bow tutorials on YouTube. I generally don't use silver and gold together, and really don't know why because this combination is striking! I designed my card around the RRR silver and gold satin ribbon. I used silver metallic cardstock for layering along with silver fine detail embossing powder. Then I brought in the gold using gold metallic cardstock for the word die cut and the gold glittered gumdrops. Sometimes less is more! ;)

The inside sentiment was stamped in Versamark Dazzle and embossed in silver fine detail embossing powder, and layered on the silver metallic cardstock.

Proud to enter this CAS winter wonderland card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, Marco's Venicelux Silver Metallic cardstock, Marco's Venicelux Gold Metallic cardstock scrap
  • Stamps: GKD Christmas Wishes stamp set
  • Ink: Versamark Dazzle
  • Dies/Punches: Tim Holtz Alterations Holiday Words Script dies
  • Accessories: RRR Diagonal Stripes Light Silver and Old Gold on White Satin, SweetStamps Silver Fine Detail embossing powder, Darice white foam, YNS Gold Glittered Gumdrops

I hope you've found some inspiration to create a project for our Silver & Gold challenge this time!
