Metallic Ornaments


Hi everyone.  Here's my latest entry for the DT call at Inkspirational.  This card is for the Sketch Inspiration challenge:



I kept it very CAS, just stamping the "ribbon and bow" and the sentiment in black ink.  The ornaments are three different sizes of circles, each one cut from a different metallic glitter paper (copper, gold and bronze).  I gave the ornaments some depth and shine by covering them in Crystal Effects.  I added a small bronze ornament to the inside of the card to add interest.  Hope you like.



Stamps:  Christmas Greetings; Tree Trimmings (SU!)
Paper:  White (Neenah); Copper, Gold and Bronze Metallic Glitter DP (Best Creations)
Ink:  Basic Black (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Crystal Effects, and dimensionals

The string and bow stamp is part of a stamp set by Stampin' Up! called Tree Trimmings.

After looking at all your cards, it seems to me that you are a shoe-in for the DT! Yours are a lot better than most of the others.
