I have really outdone myself! 2 cards within 7 days! Wow! I hope it's a sign of good things to come.
The image, Holly Snowflake by Impression-Obsession, was stamped with Brilliance Galaxy Gold on Neenah Classic Crest Super Smooth Natural 80lb. Cover cardstock. It was heat embossed to dry it and then painted with Twinkling H2O's Rose Petal and Olive Vine. Mark Richards Crystal Stickers 2mm, 3mm, and 5mm pearls were used from the center outward and 2mm Pink rhinestones were used for the Holly Berries. Stickles Rose Quartz (retired) glitter glue was used for the bows. I tried leaving the bows Rose Petal and the whole card just looked blah! Even with Glossy Accents applied. So it had to get some glitter. :-)
The first background is Neenah Classic Crest Super Smooth Natural 80lb. Cover cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug's Textile Texture embossing folder. The ends were punched using Fiskars Holly Border Punch. The punch-out holly leaves were painted with Twinkling H2O Olive Vine and mounted where they came out! Now that is 'Green'. Mark Richards Pink 2mm rhinestones were mounted for the berries. Stickles Rose Quartz was used to highlight the texture randomly.
Stardream Chiara Rose Quartz was used behind that. The ends were first embossed with the Swiss Dot folder from Cuttlebug's A2 Borders Just My Type folder, then punched using the Fiskars Leave It to Weaver Border Punch. The ribbon is from Michaels and was turned half way on each top weave through the punched area.
The very bottom of the Background layers is plain Neenah Classic Crest Super Smooth Natural 80lb. Cover cardstock. It was a very different card and I had no idea where I was going. Ha!
Thanks for stopping by 'the blog' to look and share.
