I had a very productive afternoon in my craft room on Thursday, and after thinking I wouldn't be able to play along with this week's Less Is More challenge to use gold, I ended up with 3 entries. I'm going to take a page from Bethany's book and have 3 posts so I can enter all 3, so please bear with me.
While making the first card, here, I was looking through my Christmas sentiments and found this Papertrey "Peace Love and Joy". This card actually started as a colour card:
I was playing around with this sentiment and seeing how it fit together and when I finished this card, I thought that it was too bad it wasn't gold, because if it was, I could use it for Less is More. Sometimes I'm just dumb like that (please don't tell my children!). The light bulb did finally go on and I remade it using gold embossing powder and adding a Hero Arts snowflake that I thought had a similar feel as the text. My camera struggles with these white cards - (or maybe it's the photographer!). I always have a hard time showing the detail in my mostly-white cards.
Onto Post 3!
