This last month of the year we are focusing all our attention on metallics, whether it's foil, embossing powder, inks or cardstock, anything metallic and since it's December we just had to make it holiday too. 

Now on with the projects.
You should have arrived from Claudia's blog, but if not please begin at Theresa's blog.  I didn't have any metallic paper so I chose Stickles and gold embossed paper for my metallic portion for this swap. As you can see I made a Christmas card. The card base is a part of Recollections Christmas Noel Chalk Holiday 8.5 x 11 Cardstock Paper that I  cut down the to A2 card size. The gold Merry Christmas paper is fussy cut from Craft Smith Embossed 8.5 x 11 Paper Pad and I traced over it with a green American Crafts gel pen. The stocking, holly, ornament, and mug are all fussy cut from the same page from Pebbles Home For Christmas 12 x 12 paper pad. I used Stickles Waterfall and Stickles Golden Rod to accent each item. The washi tape is either Recollections or American Crafts. I don't remember if I bought it from TJ Maxx or Michaels. I'll include a note inside before mailing it. Thanks for stopping by! Debbie is the last stop on the hop and I'm sure she has something lovely to share with us! :) Feel free to hop along with me in the Holiday Magic Blog Hop, the next post, if you wish.
