The Glory of Christmas challenge 76


This is my design card for The Glory of Christmas challenge 76: silver or gold ... or anything goes as long as it's Christmas. Please click on the link to see the lovely designs of others in the team and join in our Christmas challenge.

It was my turn to choose the theme for this fortnight - I think silver or gold on a Christmas card is lovely and bright and shiny. I chose to make a CAS card, using two stamps, inked with versamark and heat embossed with detail silver powder. I stamped the 'scene' Personal impressions stamp by Sue Dix on to a piece of matt silver - now I wish I had stamped it directly on to the black card blank as I did with the Inkadinkado stamp on the left - but, hey ho!

This is also for Stamplorations January CAS card challenge: + option: silver:
