This is my 2nd card for the Christmas Fan Club September Challenge of 'Silver'. If you are a FAN CLUB MEMBER here at SCS, you can find the challenge details here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...e-t577804.html If you aren't a Fan Club Member, I encourage you to join so you can play along and you will have a nice little stash of Christmas cards all ready to use.
I am still playing with my Memory Box Deer Trio die which I love! I went for a very clean and simple Christmas card - one that is quick and easy for me to make about 20 - 10 for me and 10 for my elderly Mum to use as she always loves simple cards that are not too fussy.
The sentiment is by Hero Arts from their Merry Christmas Tree clear set. I rubbed my embossing buddy across the white cardstock then stamped the sentiment with Versamark Watermark ink and heat-set it using silver embossing powder.
The background embossing is a Cuttlebug embossing folder - Kars Snowflake. I love how the embossing looks like falling snow.
The silver strip on the card bottom is silver glitter cardstock and was punched using an EK Success Scalloped Scallops border punch. I diecut a My Favorite Things Die-namics snowflake (from their Snowflake Trio set - I used the smallest snowflake), added a Kaisercraft silver rhinestone to the centre and popped the snowflake up on dimensionals.
Lastly, I tied on some Darice Glitz silver metallic cord and added some Fray Stop to the cut ends to stop them from fraying.
Finished size is 4-3/4" across and 4-1/2" deep (almost square) or 120mm x 110mm if you are metric
