Christmas Card Club #6: Silver + 1 Other Colour

Well, well, well.... another challenge is a-brewing at the secret place where the Crafty Christmas Cronies meet every fortnight. To entice the young and unsuspecting, we refer to our little congregation as the Christmas Card Club. And this week we have an interesting challenge set by Sylvie...

Silver + 1 Other Colour  

For my card I chose Silver and Green....with plenty of sparkle and glitter and bling. But thanks to my unparalleled skills, none of these were properly captured on film. But you get the idea...


Single layer card, no patterned papers. The garland is a stamp from WMS Nutcracker Sweet stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy. The snowflakes are from WMS Compliments of the Season stamped in Versacolor Silver. See that pinkish hue on the left - that's the rising sun! 

The tree is a stamp from Chocolate Baroque's Pears and Baubles , embossed in Holographic Silver. A couple of blings as a tree topper and some silver ribbon complete the tree. 

I also dotted some Crystal Stickles on the snowflakes and on the tree. It's all very shimmery and shiny in IRL ... I'm sparing  you the blinding glare! 

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from WMS Compliments of the Season using Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy . the garland is from WMS Nutcracker Sweet and I double stamped it - first in Memento Bamboo Leaves then, slightly offset, with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy. 

I'm taking this card to: Totally Gorjuss #178 Anything Goes With Sparkle"Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra "April"Crazy Amigo Challenge "Slingers / Garlands"Holly Jolly Christmas "Christmas Music" - O Tannenbaum; Jingle Belles "Jingle Bells are Blinging"365 Cards- Day #96 "Christmas In April"Christmas Stampin All Year Long #10 "List To Santa" - Bling, Stickles, Embossing Powder; ABC Christmas Challenge "G is for Girl or Guy" - made a gender neutral card and Christmas Cards All Year 'Round - April "O Christmas Tree".

That's all from me. Thanks for stopping by and before I go I just want say that our little god-daughter arrived in the wee hours of Sunday morning! On that happy note, I wish ya'all a blessed Sunday!

Beijinhos!
