Hiya folks! Are you ready for another Christmas card? This heat in Texas is just yucky, and I'm ready for some nice cool, crisp fall/winter weather. It can't come soon enough, lemme tell ya!
I love the Glimmering Silk technique from Technique Junkies, and I put it to use again on this card. This time I used a pale blue Glimmer Mist and I didn't sponge any extra color onto the card. These Snowflakes are from Chapel Road and I stamped them with a gray ink onto the paper after it dried.
The white and blue cardstocks as well as the pretty pink ribbon are from Paper Temptress. The white background is the yummy Cryogen White cardstock - it's a gorgeous shimmery white cardstock. The blue is Aqua Basics cardstock and that gorgeous pink ribbon is the 3/8 Reversible Satin Ribbon w/stitches in Pink/Light Pink. I ordered the 5 yard length, but now I'm thinking I need to order the 25 yard roll! It's gorgeous and soft and ties like a dream.
This close-up picture will help you see the gorgeous shimmer of the Cryogen White cardstock as well as the light blue Glimmer Mist on my Glimmering Silk snowflakes:
I love shimmery, glittery things! :-) I added some pink rhinestones to the center of the clear acrylic snowflake just to do something different and to keep this card sparkly.
As I looked around at all the different challenge blogs, I noticed that this card actually fits into several of the challenges. I'm entering this into these challenges:
Christmas Card Challenges #31 - Christmas cards
Craft Your Passion Challenge #65 - anything goes
House of Gilli #11 - lots of sparkle
There She Goes #114 - glitter, glitz & bling
I hope you have a wonderful day! Stay cool!!
