Black + Gold = Elegant Holiday Wishes

Black and white, and gold – it’s perfect for any occasion. Even the holidays! There’s no better way to show off a beautiful background stamp design than by letting it speak for itself. That’s why I just did some emboss resist and colored in the background with a gentle gold watercolor.

I paired the design with a simple sentiment from’s Heartfelt Christmas – a lovely 3×4 sentiment collection!

Love that background? Check out this other project idea using the Catherine Pooler Vintage Baubles!
