Special Order - Christmas Cards
So I used plenty of Silver Glimmer Paper to give them that extra special look.
My first card I used the negative of the Snowflake Die (now retired but still a favourite of mine) and some retired gorgeous ribbon.
The sentiment is from the More Merry Messages stamp set which is still available on the carryover list.
Supplies used: Cardstock - Midnight Muse, Whisper White, Raspberry Ripple, Silver Glimmer Paper, Inkpads - Raspberry Ripple, Stamp Set - More Merry Messages, Die - Snowflake (retired), Gemstones, Ribbon (retired)
My second card I used the Mosaic punch to punch out some Silver Glimmer Paper for my Christmas Baubles.
The sentiment I stamped onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock and then used the Mosaic punch to give the ends a fancy look. I have embossed the background with an embossing folder from the last Holiday Catalogue (now retired) but you could use the Beautifully Baroque embossing folder for a similar look.
Supplies used: Cardstock - Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer Paper, Inkpad - Raspberry Ripple, Stamp Set - More Merry Messages, Punch - Mosaic, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding Ribbon, Embossing Folder, Red Gemstones (non SU)
