The Funkie Junkie's 12 tags of Christmas 2015, tag #2

Wow I cannot believe that we are nearly at the end of October...I am getting a bit behind with my Funkie Junkie tags so here is a quick post from me of my version of Linda's Number 2 tag which you can see here. I loved playing with my gold embossing paste with my last card so as it was still on my desk it was shouting at me to use it again.

For those of you who are new to Linda's challenge you can read all the rules of it here. In a nutshell you use her weekly tag for inspiration and you can create anything crafty and as long as all 12 projects are completed by 22 Dec. You also have a chance to win one of her generous prizes. I was lucky enough to win $25 dollars last year  to spend in her wonderful on line boutique which sponsors the challenge. Do have a look here at her shop, her stock is enormous and her prices really keen.

I choose to use the challenge to create 12 special Christmas cards.

I was inspired to use the gold embossing paste in the same rays stencil that Linda used. I wanted to continue the gold theme she used for my card and use different stars as she did.  Instead of a thinlet tree die cut I used one which has been sitting in my stash for years...I have no idea who the maker is and if someone can elighten me I will edit this.

I edged my black card with a gold pen and use a wooden and a die cut star.
 I stamped a snowy backround with my VI speckle background stamp and white opaque ink.

 Here is my finished card complete with gold prancing deer and plenty of bling!
