Metallic Christmas

While hubby was at curling this morning (they won 8 - 6) I was busy making 3 Christmas cards using this technique.  I was pleased as punch at how well they turned out.

I used a snowflake embossing folder in my Cuttlebug and the stamp I used is from Stampin Up - Snow Swirled.  I love this set!  I had every intention of adding a silver ribbon, but had already glued down the white embossing paper so I opted to add a silver foil star that I cut out from some silver foil with a star punch from Fiskers.  I also added some blue rhinestones for a finishing touch.

Here is the same card in green & gold:

I love the red rhinestones and the green and gold ribbon I used on this card.

This card is my fave!

I used the Petals a Plenty embossing folder from Stampin Up and the stamp is from Inkadinkado.  I used a circle punch as well as my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss the scallop nestibility.  I love this card and it will be going to a very special person.   I love this technique and will be using it more often.

I will close this post with a picture of my gorgeous daughter with my adorable granddaughter:

Thanks for stopping by!
