Silver Sparkle Christmas

Friday, November 23, 2012

Trish has chosen Mrs Noofy (Sue) as our Queen for the Day.  Sue has a wonderful gallery, full of amazing inspiration.  I chose this beautiful card as mine.  I'm also entering the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge to use blues.

Yes, I know...it doesn't look anything like Sue's card!  But that's the beauty of inspiration.  I chose the two vertical elements, changed it to a Christmas card and added some sparkle.

I've completely covered my card base with designer paper and rounded the bottom corners of the card.  Then the sentiment is die cut in brushed silver card stock and I added some coarse glitter...it's somewhat subtle in the picture, but a little more "glitzy" in real life.

The tree was also die cut in a coordinating designer paper and the edges were inked with distress ink. Next, I used my Versamark pen on the outer edges of most of the tree and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.

A scattering of silver stars as the only embellishment and done!

Here's what I used:
Paper:  SU! Naturals White, Brushed Silver and Echo Park Winter Wishes
Ink:  Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire
Stamps:  none
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Tim Holtz Stacked Words Christmas die, Tim Holtz Pine Tree die, Ranger Glue n' Seal, Martha Stewart Coarse Glitter, Versamark pen, sponges, corner rounder punch, silver embossing powder, heat gun, Mark Richards metal star stickers

See you soon with more!
