It’s Christmas week! I’m so excited to be here today sharing with you a couple of cards that feature our stunning Stardream Metallic Cardstock. From the moment I laid eyes on this cardstock, I was in love. Seriously stunning and fabulous way to take simple cards to the next level!
You can see the shimmer on both of these cards – don’t you just love the way they sparkle!?!
I cut the base for this card from the Sapphire Stardream Metallic Cardstock (totally my favorite of all of them!) I used my Silhouette Cameo and then backed the front with CTI Glama White Marble Translucent paper. It reminded me of snow with the marble look it has…making it perfect for a snowflake card! You may have noticed that several of us have been using the Silhouette Cameo to do our projects recently. I was stunned at how beautifully it cut thru this cardstock! I just set it to double cut my card and it came out nice and crisp. A few simple stickers, gems, and washi tape are the final touches.
This card is way more simple than it first appears. The base is created with more Crystal Stardream Metallic Cardstock. I then used a snowflake punch and punched out Antique Gold Stardream Metallic Paper. I created a row of snowflakes along the bottom of the card and worked up from there – connecting limbs of the snowflakes. Adhering these was nice and easy – I used a mini glue dot in the center of each snowflake. Once I reached a height I was satisfied with I topped them with a ribbon border. A doily and letter stickers polish the card off and create the trendy combination of silver, gold, and white.
