Hi everyone. I'm so excited to be a Guest Designer at Merry Monday this week. I was given this wonderful honour after Debbie chose this card as the winning entry of the non-evergreen tree challenge. :) Thanks so much!
Today, Kathy's hosting and she has a wonderful challenge that is perfect for holiday cards. I do love to add lots of sparkle and bling to my Christmas cards.
I made a very sparkly, shimmery, and bling-y wreath. :) Unfortunately, it's really hard to capture that with my camera. After many tries, I am posting the best shot I got of the card, along with a close-up below that does show a little more detail.
I started by cutting a circle aperture on my card front. Then I die-cut several pine sprigs ... some in silver foil paper, and some in white glimmer paper. I placed them around the aperture, alternating the two different papers and overlapping as I went until I ended up with lots of texture and depth. I then added some silver and clear sequins and bits of bling. To finish, I die-cut the sentiment with my Silhouette Cameo from more silver foil paper. The white glimmer paper has an iridescent look to it, but it doesn't show at all in the photos. This is so much prettier in real life.
I hope you'll join in this fun challenge at Merry Monday.
Paper: White card base (Neenah); Silver Foil Paper and White Glimmer Paper (SU!)
