July Rudolf Days

I had the idea for this card a while back but had not managed to make it into reality.

I'm not sure if the photo really shows but it is gold on green. 
I embossed a piece of white card, inked in green and then sponged on gold pigment ink. I've found that this ink pad is not great for stamping but rubs on quite well. I know there is a better gold pad available now but I've just had a spending spree so no new purchases for a little long while. I'll play with what  have for now (which is plenty).
I managed to stick the embossing down off centre so had to trim both sides tight but I think it looks ok, almost planned!
This is a Sissix embossing folder. I don't know what it's called and was pleased that I'd made Christmas  card with a non Christmassy folder. But loooking at it now, I'm wondering if it is a Christmas folder? Hehe. It has berries on it.
So I've just got time to link with July Rudolf Days where it is Christmas once a month.
