A touch of silver

It seems it's world card making day today which amuses me because every day's a card-making day for me! In fact, today is less of a card making day than usual because I have a very long list of chores to do... So it's a very quick card from me, made for the Less is More challenge where Chrissie and Mandi want to see some Silver, and also for the St Lukes Charity Card Challenge where CAS Christmas cards are the order of the day. Come and have a look:


I adore this wonderful ribbon-like new sentiment from Sassy Salutations and felt it deserved to take centre stage on a Christmas card. I versamarked some snowflakes from my Make a Mitten set around it and heat embossed them in silver...


... before decorating the centres with the largest Basic rhinestones. I've tried to photograph them looking  all shiny but failed miserably! You'll have to take it from me - they are lovely and glittery! The scoring was done afterwards so that I could skip the bits where the snowflakes are.

Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Sassy Salutations, Make a Mitten
Ink: Real Red
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Versamark, silver embossing powder, heat tool, Simply Scored, Basic Rhinestones, corner rounder, stamp-a-majig

My daughter is writing an essay about marriage so we were discussing it. I explained that it doesn't cost much to get married in a church but that you do have to pay extra to have a choir, bell ringers, organist etc - 'bells and whistles' as I termed it. "Whistles?" she said in surprise and I suddenly had a vision of a wedding service being punctuated by a slide whistle!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.
Hugs,

  24. Guess who is totally behind on her commenting again :( Sorry to be so late.

    This is simply elegance personified! I particularly like the offset placement of the image layer - makes a CAS card very interesting.

    Thanks as ever for your support of my challenge.
