Ornaments A Shimmering II

Hello everyone,


Yet another glittered ornament Christmas card for you today.

The card base is a shimmery green of unknown origin.  The bell is a Cottage Cutz Filigree Ornament Trio die cut from glossy paper smooshed with Ranger Clover, Wild Plum, Citrus, Watermelon, Cool Perl, Snow Cap and Pearl alcohol ink and covered with DecoArt Crystal Glamour Dust.  The sentiment is Kaisercraft St. Nicholas heat embossed with Close To My Heart black embossing powder.  The embellishments are Crafts Rhinestone Stickers.

I don't often use these particular dies because they are a total bear to release.  They're even more of a bear when using the glittered glossy paper.  The new Stampin' Up Precision Base Plate helps but there is just something about these dies that just doesn't work very well.  All that said, it was worth the aggravation because this card turned out beautifully.  I just love the bold black sentiment and with the heat embossed shine, it's really great!

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. Love this clean and simple card, perfect colour. Try die cutting on an unused fabric softener sheet first. Worked for me with my difficult to release dies. Merry Christmas and love your blog.
