CCC September 2023 Metallics

 Hi there and welcome back to my blog. Today I have a card for the Christmas Craft Creations Challenge, where for September, we are looking for metallics! I went the metallic paper route for this one!

This was an old pack of metallic papers that I used, but quite pretty and it had a bit of red hue to it, so I paired it with burgundy red card stock. This ended up as a 6" square card. I cut a triangle piece for the left side corner.

I die cut the stag from the same metallic card as I used on the left side. I then cut him out so that he would stand alone!

I stamped the "Greetings" from the scrap of the deer die.

Then I die cut the "Season's" part of the greeting from a scrap of red metallic cardstock.

Both parts of the die cut sentiment were glued to the card base and the stag was mounted on foam pads to give it some dimension. I added a gold metallic elastic thread to the spine of the card to finish.

Hope you like my metallic take on the challenge and hope you will join in with us this month. There are always prizes! Just make sure you mention our Challenge graphic in your blog!

Till next time,



  1. Such a wonderful card teammate, love the bold deer, stands out very nicely on the card. Have a great day!

  2. A stunning card Shona, it's very elegant, love the matching of the gold and red.

  3. Simply love this card Shona. That gold is 'gold' and created such a beautiful card.


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share in part of your day. I would love to hear what you think about my latest creation!
