Christmas never ends

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone!

Christmas holidays are over but not in my home country. We celebrate Christmas on 7th of January, then we have so called “Old” New Year on the night from 13th to 14th of January and the last holiday will be on 19th – Epiphany. We have a tradition during this holidays when godchildren come to their godparents to celebrate the season and to exchange presents.

Today I prepared one more Christmas card for you in one of my favorite ever color combo: black and gold.

I used one of tree images from Sketched Evergreen Stamp Set with gold embossing powder on a Spicy Yogurt Cardstock. I liked the look so decided to leave it clean and simple and added only a sentiment over the tree.

The sentiment is from Halftone Holidays Stamp Set and heat embossed with black sparkling embossing powder. To highlight it I filled the whole sentiment with a glossy accent and let it dry.

Finally I got very elegant and classy holiday card that can be a great one for a male relative or friend.

Thanks for being here! Hope you enjoyed!

Thanks) What is unlike to you, we celebrate NY more wide then Christmas and we have a tradition of pine tree on NY not X-mas, under this tree our Santa called Ded Moroz leaves presents for children. While this groun ups gather at homes or at clubs to celebrate the NY night and exchange presents. For X-mas family gather for a dinner and thats all))
