Christmas Cheer


Happy Monday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card made using the challenge this week on The Paper Players Blog.


Silver or Gold? I had to make another Christmas card. I used a base of some of the Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler Core'dinations card stock. For the next layer I used some of the Silver Glimmer paper, I am so loving this paper this year, been using it on a lot of my Christmas cards. I then used another layer of the Cherry Cobbler core'dinations card stock that I embossed with the Lacy Brocade EF. I then sanded the embossed piece to bring out the core color.


I used the Stampin Up Watercolor Winter stamp set for the holly and berry image, I stamped on to some vanilla card stock with black stazon. I then used my aqua painter to color the image. I cut this out with my nestie dies and matted with a scallop of silver glimmer. I added a strip across the middle of more silver glimmer and a strip of champagne glimmer. I mounted the image to the card with some dimensionsal.  I then added a bunch of silver pearls around the scallop and in the corners, this card is so sparkly!!
The sentiment comes from the Sweet Essential stamp set and is stamped with back stazon and cut out, I hand cut the ends.

Thanks for stopping by today.
