Merry Christmas


Happy Saturday everyone!  Today's card is for a couple challenges.  Virginia's View and Simon Says: We're seeing stars.



I used the star framelits from SU to created my focal point.  The splattering on the background is using black versafine ink and Gold Shimmer Spritz by Tsukineko.  The sentiment banner is from Clearly Besotted called Mini Banners.  I had taken this photo a dozen times trying to capture the gold glimmer paper on the biggest star but it just doesn't want to show up good.  You can see the glimmer a bit on the right side of the star but that is it.  I apologize.

**ETA this over at a new challenge, showCASe your style!  Thank you, Alanna!!! I have another idea that I will be working on for this challenge.  Stay tuned!


I will also be linking this up at our "A Very Trendy Holiday 2.0" Online Class.
Metallics is one of the trends we looked at!

Stamps:  Mini Banners (Clearly Besotted), Gorgeous Grunge (SU)
Ink:  Versafine black
Paper:  Gold Foil (SU), white, black
Accessories:  Star framelits, Gold shimmer spritz (Imagine Crafts)

  23. This is such a trendy and cool Christmas card - great for teenagers or guys! The splatter rocks!

    Yes...I can see some glimmer on the right hand side! I read a tip about holding another piece of reflective paper (in the same color that you are using) beside the camera so that the reflective paper on your card will pick up the same color from the sheet that you are holding. I tried it and it does work....although it is a bit tricky to snap a pic and hold the paper at the same time!
