Christmas Card Challenges # 14

The challenge theme this week at Christmas Card Challenges is:

Sentiments Only
(no images)

This was a challenge for me since I'm not really a CAS/sentiment only type of person ~ especially when it comes to Christmas cards.  But looking through my stamps ~ digital and rubber ~ I realized that I had several wonderful sentiments that definitely could take center stage on a card.

Sarting with a cream 5" square cardstock base, I covered the front with gold-ish vellum; then die cut  2 nesting Fleur de Lis Squares (Spellbinders) ~ one out of shimmer green and one out of shimmer red.

The sentiment ~ from Doodle Pantry's Christ Your Treasure set ~ was printed on cream cardstock and distressed using Tsukineko Brilliance Rocket Red Gold ink.

I added a gold organza bow and a decorative brad to finish off the card.  The inside, the photo still happens to be in my camera-sorry , mirrors the front with a solid green mat, red large Fleur de Lis Square and larger cream distressed solid piece to write a personal note.
