Gold for Our King

I saw this idea at Becca's Gallery at Split Coasters and I just loved it. Her work is simply outstanding!

First I embossed a piece of gold metal from Spell Binders with the Christmas Ornaments Embossing Folder from Cuttlebug. Jewels were added, corners punched with Fiscars Victorian Corner Punch and a ribbon strip glued down to hold the Sentiment. I spent a lot of time selecting the right papers, but I finally found this combination and was pleased with the way it turned out.

I stamped Merry Christmas from the Ornate Christmas stamp set shown below and then I used my Ink Blender tool to distress it so it blended better with the gold. The printed paper seemed to be just what it needed. A small sheer bow was added for the finishing touch.
