52CCT - Colours ....

... Morning!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and April and picked some gorgeous colours for us to use.  You can use EITHER BLUE OR PURPLE and ANY METALLIC.  Here's my card:

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Flurry of Wishes
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Silver Mirri Card; Silver Embossing Powder; White Orchid Embossing Powder


I've used one of my favourite techniques to make this card - emboss resist.  I stamped the sentiment and snowflakes in Versmark and heat embossed them using silver on the sentiment and white on the snowflakes.  If you look closely you'll see that the snowflakes sparkle - the embossing powder contains silver glitter.  I added colour to the background by blending two shades of blue inks.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of silver card and added some more snowflakes and a greeting to the white panel.  As this is a one layer card, I'm submitting it to the new One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - OLXCC#19 where anything goes, this time with the option of silver.  And it's a CASE of Kimberley's lovely card too at Muse: Christmas Visions - MCV#23.

Don't forget to visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have made this week.  And I don't want to panic anyone, but there are only 10 more Saturdays before Christmas!  So now's the time to get going with your Christmas cards!  Have fun.
