I didn't realize how hard it is to take a good photo of a sparkly silver paper. This is a card done completely in Silver and white, but colors are showing up in the photo. I decided to make a center step card using a few more of the new Memory Box dies I received yesterday from Joan's Gardens. I love working with these dies because they pop right out of the die and are so easy to work with. I know you will enjoy working with them too.
The products used today are: Heartfelt Creations "Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set" (HCPC 3415); Memory Box "Flowering Christmas Tree" (98195), Memory Box "Crisp Bows" (98197); JustRite "A Merry Little Christmas Set"; Cheery Lynn "Snowflake 2" (DL166); Marianne Designs "Holly" (LR0127). All the design paper used is from my scrap Christmas paper. I believe the button is from a package of Tim Holtz buttons and the trim something from my stash.
A piece of silver and white design paper was put on the two side panels and a piece of white on white, large polka dot, paper attached to the center section. The beautiful Memory Box "Flowering Christmas Tree" was die cut using a sparkly silver paper. The boxes were created with two different silver papers. It is just a square cut then a piece cut for the lid - very simple to do. The bow on the box to the left was die cut three times and the bow on the smaller box die cut twice. I love these Memory Box Bows. The bows are beautiful used single, but I wanted nice full bows so cut out more, and just layered them. Isn't it cool how they have the ribbon that goes down around the box!
You know how much I love the new Heartfelt Creations poinsettia stamps and matching Spellbinder dies. I silver embossed three layers, shaped and glued them together. Three small silver rhinestones were added to the center. Joan sent me a new "Holly" die from Marianne Designs. I decided to silver emboss white leaves after they were die cut. I just patted them down on the VersaMark pad and sprinkled on silver embossing powder. The pretty doily behind the poinsettia is actually a Cheery Lynn Snowflake but is the perfect size for a little frill behind the flower. The sentiment from JustRite was silver embossed and die cut using the Spellbinders Lacy Circles die.
This was another very fun card to design. I hope you like it. Tomorrow I will be posting a cute snowman card I design using a Cheery Lynn Snowflake, the Sizzix Snowflake embossing folder, and a cute snowman from JustRite. Hope to see you tomorrow.
