Hi everyone. I have a card, a bit last minute, for the CAS Christmas Card Challenge where the theme is Silver and Gold, and I have used this Memory Box die called Hanging Ornaments and I also used some snowflakes from Creative Stamping Magazine No. 100 which was one of four sets of stamps by Crafters Companion, and the sentiment was included in the set of snowflake themed stamps too.
I started with a white die cut baubles image which I have had sitting waiting to be used amongst my snippets, and decided to emboss it with WOW Platinum Embossing Powder, and then cut it again from a soft silver coloured snippet to coordinate with the frame rather than use the brighter mirri card. I used some spray adhesive to stick the gold outline down on my 6" square card, and then with some wet glue I adhered the larger silver pieces of the baubles and the circles back into the spaces. I decided that the smaller pieces in the snowflakes were far too fiddly so they have been left open. I did have an argument with one piece of the die cut and it bent out of shape so I cut it off as it didn't effect the finished look too much. On reflection I decided that maybe the platinum didn't look gold enough, so I went over the outline very carefully with a gold Sakura Starlight pen which brightened it up and made it sparkly too.
I finished by adding the silver and gold snowflakes and gold sentiment embossed with WOW Metallic Gold and Silver Embossing Powder.
Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
