It's another 'flat one'

Hello and thanks for visiting today - and talking about visiting we've just arrived home after visiting Krakow for the last week - a last minute booking with not a lot of  preparation time, but very enjoyable.  Lots of walking and sightseeing  and although they have a Christmas Market, which was one of the attractions of going this time of the year, it wasn't as big and varied as I'd expected.
When we got home there were some Christmas cards in our post, which makes me realise just how close Christmas is - better get a move on - so here's another  'flat' card made for the post.  I've inked  up one of my older stamps from Chocolate Baroque (they were Elusive Images when these were bought), stamped this up in Versamark and heat embossed with white EP, I used DIs for the background before layering on to some gold mirri card, added some red and gold glitter, well, it is Christmas and you've got to have sparkle - another simple make.
Hopefully I'll be doing a bit more 'visiting' this weekend and catching up with you in Blogland.
Have a great weekend,
Avril xx

Such a gorgeous card, the colours are amazing and I am in awe that you could make such an elegant card which is flat. I still find it an issue to try and make cards that are as flat as possible for sending at this time of the year!

It may be flat Avril, but it's FABULOUS too! I'm loving the colours in the background behind the wonderful holly spray!

Glad you enjoyed Krakow..

Love this Avril ..... the white embossing really pops!!
I'm all for flat cards after needing a small mortgage on my last trip to the Post Office. Next year they're all going to be one layer!!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. xx

What a lovely colorful background, the colors blend beautifully together and I do like that stamp heat embossed in white.
