CardMaker Blog Hop

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! 
Blessings,

Thank you so much sharing this post I like this post I also share with you some tips hope you like There are those cynics who insist that physical greeting cards are passé. However, anyone who has ever gotten a heartfelt Valentine, a sweet note of congratulations or a warm holiday greeting knows that nothing can replace the experience of opening that envelope and removing a tangible reminder of how much you mean to someone else. That heartening experience is irreplaceable, and no matter how electronically minded we all become in the future, it is highly unlikely that will ever be obsolete.ID Card Maker
