Now onto my card, I decided this week I was going to get a little more use out of my Stocking Prints set (by Papertrey Ink). I inked up this adorable stocking and cut it out, then I inked up the cuff, cut it out, ran it through my Xyron and then glittered it up, I then added real swarvorski rhinestones to my stocking with glue dots and put it aside. I then cut out my card base and the layered papers. For my pink cardstock I painted glue on the edges and sprinkled more of the same glitter (I love that this glitter takes on the effect of the color it's on...very cool), then I ran the white paper through my Cuttlebug embossing Textiles folder.
Since my last card, I really enjoyed this sparkly frame look, this time I wanted it to look a little like a wreath, so instead of squares I pulled out my Scalloped Circle and Regular Circle Nestabilities and went to work. After I had my "wreath" cut out I ran THAT through the Xyron, now before I added my glitter I added my "greenery"...err..."pinkery"...LOL and THEN I added my glitter. I then popdotted it AND my stocking to give this card a little dimension.
I then pulled out one of the sentiment from my Stocking stamp set an did stamped it in white...but it wasn't drying fast enough, so I did something I haven't done in years...I went to my embossed powdered drawer, found some sparkly embossing powder, pulled out the heat gun and embossed! I then cut out my little banner added some pop dots and wa la...we're done!
Thanks for joining me today and I hope you can join us this week at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, I can't wait to see all the "unconventional" Christmas Color Combos you come up with!
