Now, on to today's card... Blue is a very favorite color of mine. I seem to gravitate towards it without even trying. So in making this Christmas card, the combination of silver and blue was as easy as falling off a rock.
I started off with white cardstock. Then a four-layer piece of aluminum foil was run through a Daria snowflake embossing folder. Before running it through, I inked the background part of the folder with blue ink. I was surprised at how it came out, because, as usual, lots of things are an experiment in crafting. :o) It took FOR-EVAH to dry. Some of the ink came off during handling, so it is not as vividly blue as it was in the beginning. I even used a heat tool on it, and still am not sure that it is dry--lots of ink on my hands after handling it. Maybe by Christmas it will be completely dry and ready to mail!
A CTMH "Peace on Earth" stamp was used with blue ink and die cut out with a Spellbinders classic oval scallop die. The edges of the sentiment piece are embellished with a bit of translucent glitter glue, and some blue liquid pearls were added to the bottom. It is attached with pop dots for added dimension. A silvery blue bow was put at the bottom to finish off the card.
And here is a picture of it:
