52CCT - Colours ....

.... Hello again! It's just coming up to 8.00am here in a very cold Northville, and I've been in my craft room already this morning to make my card for this week's challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - 52CCT14-16. Patricia is our host this month and she picked a super simple, but oh so elegant colour scheme - METALLIC GOLD AND WHITE. Here's my card:

Stamps: Stampin Up! - Wacky Wishes
Inks: Versamark
Dies: Die-namics - Pierced Rectangle Frames #2
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold Mirri Card; Gold Tinsel Embossing Powder


I must apologise for the photo - there's an absence of sunlight here at the moment, so getting a good picture is tough. When I try to correct the colour, it makes the card look cream and it's not! This is a super simple card. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark on white card, embossed it with gold tinsel powder (and you can see the sparkle in the photo) and used a die to cut it out. I found some gold mirri card in my stash to match the powder and cut out the frame with the detailed die. I adhered the gold frame flat to the card and attached the sentiment panel with dimensional tape. You can't see it here, but I'll take a photo when I have better light. I've not finished the inside yet, I just wanted to get my card up. I'm playing along with this week's challenge at Merry Monday - MM#199 as they wanted a card with the sentiment as the focus - done!

I took a few photos of the card to try and get the best view of the colour and the shimmer. For more inspiration with our elegant gold and white scheme, do visit our blog to see what the rest of the team have made.  It really is nice to be back in my craft room and creating! Have fun!

I think you win the prize for shiniest card among the DT samples! *teasing grin* Your card turned out really nicely, and I do understand how hard it can be to get a good photo of all the shine and sparkle.
