Silver & White Handmade Christmas card

This is my final week guest designing for SplitCoastStampers Color Challenge. I have had an amazing time and am very thankful for the opportunity.

This last week of November is a different color combo, you can choose from either Gold and White OR Silver and White.  I really thought I would want to use gold, but as I went along, I changed over to silver.  The optional theme is sparkle, and as you can see, I did add it!

This card has sparkle and shine, so it was hard to photograph. The chevron layer is acetate printed with silver dots.  In some of the photos it looks black, but it is silver AND it is layered over white lumiere paper for extra subtle sparkle.

 I heat embossed my trees in silver, die cut out a portion of the image and added the glitter ribbon and brad at the bottom.

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Silhouette Pines, Versamark Ink, Recollections Silver detail embossing powder, WeRMemoryKeepers Acetate 6x6 pad, American Crafts Glitter ribbon, brad is My Mind’s Eye, Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangle dies.

I would also like to enter ScrappyMo’s Rudolph Days challenge and the DiesRUs Snow Challenge.
