Amazing that I would be able to put out a second post today! I created a new card this afternoon and am so excited I have to go ahead and post it. As many of you know I love Our Daily Bread Designs stamps. And I love to participate in their challenges. This week the challenge is to create something combining their top three challenges. That wasn't hard for me considering I really love bling! So creating a glitzy card with die cuts and punches was a delight for me! The bling on this card is very subtle. You will have to look close to see it in the photos. But when you see the card in person it really pops! It was cool to use non-traditional Christmas colors too! I mean, who normally thinks of pink and white at Christmas? Maybe I will try purple next? Thanks to those who read and comment. I appreciate your feedback!


Card Design

5 X 6 inches

Card Stock - Bazzill - White and Pink
Card Stock - Image - Gina K. Pure Luxury
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug - Flurry
Ink - Image - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics
Ink - Sentiment - Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamp - Image and Sentiment - Our Daily Bread Designs - Blessed Christmas
Die Cuts - Nestabilities - Fancy Tags
Punch - Ionic - Ticket Punch
Pearls - Scrappers Must Haves
Stickles - Ranger - Diamond
Smooch Spritz - Vanilla Shimmer
Ribbon - Offray - Swiss Dot Light Pink


The second layer of white card stock was embossed with the Flurry folder and the image was reversed (placed upside down) before adhering.

The Fancy Tag die cut (under the image) was split in two and then applied to the bottom. It makes the tag appear to be the full length of the image!

The poinsettia colors are very simple.

Petals R20, R22
Centers YR15
Leaves - YG07

The entire poinsettia was covered with a light layer of Diamond Stickles for shimmer. The other "shimmer" is the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz applied to the embossed underlayer.

How did I create the ribbon? I placed scor-tape on the the card and then folded the ribbon onto the card. I placed a small glue dot under each "fold" to help it hold! Voila! I also highlighted the tags with Stickles!
