A Silver Glittery Christmas

When the Penmaker and I visited
the Archiver's store in Columbus a couple of weeks ago, I purchased a sheet of Bo Bunny's Father Christmas "Stripe". (Why do I only buy one sheet at a time???) I built this card around that paper...


The card base is Bazzill's Aspen cardstock 
and the mate base is American Crafts Evergreen. I sponged Antique Linen Distress Ink on the edges.


I cut the backside of my copper 
sheeting, which is silver, with my Alteration's Mini Pine Tree and Holly Set and added a glittered rose. (None of my glitter seems to be showing up in these photos). I applied Rock Candy Stickles to the holly on the paper for more shine.


The branch is cut with
Alteration's Mini Branch and Leaf Set.


I used Spellbinder's Labels
Seventeen to cut these three layers and embossed the Aspen layer with Cuttlebug's Textile Texture. I sponged these with Gathered Twigs DI.

I'm entering my card in these challenges:
Heart Song Inspirations - Gold or Glitter
Little Scrap Pieces - Holiday
The Pink Elephant - Embossing

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hugs!
Linda

I'm completely taken by those shiny die cuts, Linda! I must've been a crow in another life. ;) I didn't even know those die cuts existed, and I love how you used them on metal. Great work!

Thanks SO much for your encouraging comments on my sketch cards I did this weekend. Made me smile! Happy Thanksgiving, my friend.
