Sparkle and Shine for Less is More



I've completed all the Christmas cards I need to send this year, but I'm still making them.  I decided that would be my plan for any challenges I participate in for the remainder of the year, as with this #356 of Less is More.  I guess that means I'll be ahead of the game for 2018!  A couple of months ago, I bought two packs of metallic cardstock--one in silver and one in gold.  Each pack has sheets of textured metallic in addition to a shiny and a matte metallic.  I am trying to use as much of it as I can.  This card features Tim Holtz holly branches cut from the textured silver, which was also used to frame the black center piece. "Peace" is a new Impression Obsession die. The card front was dry embossed in miniature poinsettia images.

Oooh, all that beautiful texture and the contrast of black, silver, and white -- stunning and I love it! You'll be so glad next Christmas to have a few cards done already. I started early, but still didn't make enough. Better luck next year!

So beautiful and elegant, Evelyn. This design would be wonderful in gold or silver and easy to duplicate. TFS my friend. Hugs
