Those of you who know me are not surprised I made another Christmas card. They're my favorite & I make them all year. Today's card was inspired by the beautiful board for the Ellen Hutson Pin Sights Challenge. I took advantage of her latest sale to add another EH product to my stash, so now I have 2! Lots more on my wishlist, so I'll be entering as many of the EH challenges as I can hoping Mr. Random finds me--haha! I'm still hooked on foiling (or glittering) self adhesive fun foam & this card started with that technique using the EH Bold Blossom die.
It truly is breathtaking in person & such an easy technique! As you can see I used the colors in the photo & Distress Rock Candy Glitter on the leaves gives a bit of the snowy effect, I think. The sentiment is my new purchase--EH Merry & Bright dies. I love that some of the words can be used year round & the font is so beautiful. The blue cardstock is shimmery & was in my scrap bin. I used a Copic marker to color the pearl for the dot over the "i".
Sometimes cards made earlier in the year no longer appeal to me when it's time to send them, but I don't think that will happen with this one. I love how it came out! I used the wonderful sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, so will enter there and all but the card itself were scraps, so I'm off to The Playground. The glittery leaves let me also join in the last challenge at Virginia's View.
Wishing everyone a lovely, peaceful Christmas.
