Christmas-card-08  This was my Christmas card design this year.  Oh, and hey, it's another blue holiday card!! (Can you tell what colour I like?!)  It may be hard to see in the picture, but the Snow Burst images are stamped onto whisper white cardstock in brocade blue, night of navy, almost amethyst and metallic silver.  Once that dried, I pressed my Versamark pad over the strip of cardstock, then heat embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder to give it the all over sparkly look.  It's mounted onto night of navy cardstock and brushed silver cardstock.  The greeting is from Many Merry Messages (my most used holiday set – all greetings!)

Frugal Friday tip on a non-Friday – I cheated on the silver layer – rather than hiding so much cardstock behind the other layers, I cut thin strips and adhered them to the navy cardstock.  Same effect but much more economical!  You could also punch out the middle of the night of navy strip with various punches to stretch your dollar further.  I however, was a bit time strapped so skipped that frugal step in favour of a bit more speed in my card making! 

I want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your readership and time!  Happy Holidays to all and wishing everyone a happy, healthy and creative new year.
