Hey everybody! I hope you’re gearing up for that jolly man in the red suit who will be here in just a little over two weeks! I can’t believe how fast this year has flown by! Leslie here, sharing a pretty tone-on-tone Christmas card with lots of metallic shimmer! I used Stardream Metallic Eris along with Neenah Classic Crest Solar 110# and 80# White cardstock. As pretty as this card turned out, it was a pure booger to photograph!
Cut Card Base and Layers
I cut a 3-1/2″ x 6″ mini slimline card base from Neenah Classic Crest 110# Solar White cardstock along with an inside layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest 80# Solar White cardstock. Next, using assorted dies in my stash, I die cut four frames, two trees, a star and a sentiment for the front, along with a layering panel for the inside, from Stardream Metallic Eris.
I adhered the four frame die cuts together for dimension, and adhered the inside layering panels together.
Create Scene and Add Front Sentiment
I adhered the two trees and star to the card front to create the scene. Next, I adhered the dimensional frame and sentiment.
Stamp Inside Sentiment
I stamped the inside sentiment in black ink, added an embellishing strip cut from the Eris cardstock, and adhered the inside panels together.
I added several tiny gemstones to the card front and adhered the inside panel to the card base, which completed the card.
