stamp sets - Endless Wishes, Endless Birthday Wishes; ink - Tempting Turquoise, Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant Memento Tuxedo Black; card stock - Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise
Before I was distracted, I was thinking about the Christmas cards we might make, and I flipped through my designer series papers. I found this beautiful silver-foiled specialty paper that I had forgotten was included in the All is Calm set. It just called out to be used for the Silver challenge at Stampin' Royalty:
stamp set - Cheerful Christmas; ink - Versamark, Encore Silver (on envelope); stampin' emboss powder - Silver; card stock - Silver Foil, Night of Navy; designer series paper - All is Calm; Big Shot with Deco Labels framelitsThere seems to be a bit of reflection making the silver seem like gold in the photo, but it really is silver in real life, I promise - I wish you could see it, it's one of my favorites this year. I wanted a narrower border for the silver foil mat, and used a craft-knife to trace around the framelit that I used for the sentiment. That's too fussy for mass production, so we won't making this card at Card Buffet, but I do have another option that incorporates Silver-embossed Cheerful Christmas.
As unusual as it is for me, each of these two cards qualifies at only one challenge - maybe because I was feeling late and distracted, but that seems to be completely normal for me, most of the time, so I'm not sure that's really the cause. Whatever the cause, I like the effects.
