Joining up with Jingle Belles for this week's prompt is The Crooked Stamper (aka Leslie) who set us the challenge of using Midas for inspiration. So a colour scheme of gold, gold, oh and a bit of gold.
Luckily for me, the colour scheme was widened a bit to include silver, white and cream because when I looked at my Christmas paper drawer there was NO gold and NO silver - nothing at all! I guess I'm not all that surprised as I'm a bit (!yeah right!) of a BG fan for Christmas papers and they don't do metallic. But nothing at all? I had expected to find a scrap or two. But there was really nothing. So I had to get creative.
I started off by finding some creamy gold (at a push) Bazzill bling paper as my base and then cut out a white glitter paper snowflake, adding another snowflake in the centre and a silver CC sentiment.
Ok, I could do better than THAT...
Next up came white cardstock, some white embossed cardstock on top which I brushed over with silver ink, then a pre-made white snowflake I had salvaged from some cards a few years ago on the top and some glitter Thickers.
Better, but still not really what I wanted.
So more Bazzill bling cream paper, the same embossing, this time brushed with gold ink and a gold glittered wooden deer shape that has been hanging around for about 12 months, finished off with some gold glitter letters. The shape reminds me of the Jägermeister stag! (And I need to go back to this one and straighten up those dodgy letters!)
Finally, I grabbed more white cardstock, a nestie shape from white dotted swiss, the inevitable silver ink, a wooden snowflake covered with silver glitter, a gorgeous white ribbon bow and a silver CC sentiment.
Finally I was satisfied!
But hey, all that indecision added four cards to my collection this week! That has to be a good thing, right?!?
