As this is the first thing I've made since I came back from holiday, I wanted to try a new technique. I've been attracted to all the foiling I've been seeing around blogland, but with no foil, laminator or Minc machine, I wasn't able to do that, so I searched my stash and found some NBUS gilding flakes that I decided to play with.
I had a Clearly Besotted swirly tree die cut which started out green, but after I added the gilding flakes it had a multicolorred golden sheen.
I die cut 'joy' with a Papertrey Ink die and gave it the same treatment, before adding them to a black panel cut with an MFT stitched rectangle die. I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Clearly Besotted in white and topped the tree with a white star.
To finish it off, I added a couple of mats to the panel along with a piece of card that I also gilded and placed across the base card.
I hope you will jump over to the Christmas Card Challenge blog today, to see the inspiration my Teamies have for you. Why not join in with us this time?
I'd like to play along with
