Welcome to the CardMaker Blog Hop! Today the theme is Metallic Inspirations and we were challenged to create a card that is shiny and sparkly. This was fun as I am not a sparkly kind of girl, so it was good to be challenge outside of my normal comfort zone. For my metallic, I used Good as Gold card stock and Tsukineko Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. The ivory panel was die cut with an ornament die and embossed with an embossing folder (Valor M-Bossibilities). Then, I sponged the panel with Delicata Golden Glitz ink and layered it onto a stamped Good as Gold layer which was stamped with a Christmas Story, which you *may* be able to see it in this close up behind the ornament:
The ornament image is from Hanging Treasures, stamped with Golden Glitz, die cut and layered in the center. A few pearls and ta-dah...done!
Be sure to check out the inspiration from the rest of the team. I know that I am looking forward to seeing the sparkly cards everyone has created!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
