I am showing you four different pictures here of the same card. When you twist it, you can see different colors.
This card is made with Melanie Muenchinger's "Festive Frame" stamp set available from Gina K Designs. I can't stop working with this beautiful frame. The size of this card is 5x7 inches. This size card does not require extra postage. I found a piece of silver glitter looking card stock in my things and wondered how this frame would look on it. The finished card basically looks silver on white, with pastel colors appearing when you twist the card. In the photos, the colors are intensified.
I stamped the frame using VersaFine black ink and because this ink stays "wet" I decided to put clear embossing powder over it. What I didn't know was that the embossing powder would cling to the entire frame even though I used a Powder Pal. At first I freaked out. Oh well, I just heat embossed it and it turned out fine. I cut out the inside of the frame with a Tim Holtz knife. I silver embossed Ornaments from Nina's "Vintage Borders" on white card stock and layered it under the frame. The verse from Festive Frame was stamped in black.
The white background was embosssed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. A piece of white and silver ribbon was attached under the picture then a button attached with glue dots. Two sticker silver snowflakes were added at the top.
Here are a few more pictures to show the different colors in the silver card stock. Isn't this cool!
