I've used a number of challenges to make this card. The layout is based on this week's CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#65, the theme of bauble is from the inspiration photo at Festive Friday - FFC#25 and the colour is from Jingle Belles - JB:14:04 where the ladies want us to feature RED. I made the card base from black card, cut a mat panel in bright red mirri card and a white panel. I used red satin card for two ornaments; I stamped them both with Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder and then punched them out. One of the baubles is a little distressed, which I rather like as you can still see the satin finish. I stamped the centre ornament on white card. I attached string to the back and adhered them with dimensional tape. I ran the black strings over the white card, taped them in place and then used dimensional tape to attach the white panel. So this card has some depth!! I finished the front with a simple banner sentiment on red mirri card. On the inside I cut a white panel, added a couple of ornaments and a simple verse.
For more inspiration with metallic papers, check out the cards from the rest of the Design Team. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you make. Last week's Christmas Landscape challenge was fab - so many lovely cards! See you soon!
