Quilted Gold…

Here is another example of my playing with the Christmas Quilt bundle…love this set.  You can make it soft and sweet or elegant and metallic…

With the addition of the gold foil, this card turns into an elegant holiday greeting.


Lots of different textures create interest…


That quilted Embossing Folder is just gorgeous.


Inside gold embossed message and woven gold ribbon coordinate with the card front.

I confess to not liking to mass produce cards…I just can’t do it.  But if I did, this one would look much more complicated than it really is and comes together quickly.

We are home today…well 2 a.m. this morning from our whirlwind weekend in California.  Great weekend with family for a surprise 80th birthday for Sweetums oldest brother.  He was stunned.  So sweet the memories we will keep.

Hope your holiday weekend is a sweet memory too.

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…

Come get inky with me…be HaPpY!



  1. Oh, Billie, this is a very striking and elegant card. I love the embossing folder, gold foil, gold woven ribbon and the holly leaves with pearl berries with the quilt die. So beautiful.
    Today’s “b-ism” is a good reminder. Glad you had a great visit and made it home safely to your own bed and pillow. Perhaps you need to schedule time for a deep breath every once in a while!! Besides coffee, you must eat your Wheaties every day to have so much energy. I’d love to know your secret. Take care.

    • I really like the elegance of this card too HJ. “The Little” and family will be traveling here from Florida this week to avoid Irma so I’m pretty sure it will be somewhat chaotic around here!…B!
