For my 2015 Christmas cards I used papers and embellishments that I used in my December Daily album in addition to stamping and embossing.
I really like the two gold and white cards so I make six more cards with a similar design. All the card have a white heavy weight card stock for the base. For the gold and white cards I used a sheet of 12″ x 12″ gold paper layered with assorted sheets of gold and white patterned paper from a 6″ x 6″ Gifts of Gold paper pad by The Paper Studio. I also used white and clear embossing powder, gold and green ink, stamps and an ornament die cut from red and white striped cardstock.
The video below show me making some of the gold and white Christmas card.
