Welcome! I've finished my card for Linda Coughlin's 12 Tags of Christmas-Funkie Junkie Style Week 7. I actually started this weeks ago--it was to be my first entry into her inspiring 12 week challenge, but I got sidetracked. I promise you, this IS my favorite so far, but it's hard to choose, isn't it?
I adore Linda's blue and silver color palette, and her overall design. Please visit The Funkie Junkie blog to see each of her beautiful, festive tags, and while you're there look at all the entries so far. Yours should be there, too, because this is an easy way to win one of several very generous gift certificates to The Funkie Junkie Boutique who is sponsoring this challenge. Be sure to read all the rules and note that if you follow them you will also get a discount for your entire purchase in January. AND you'll get some of your Christmas cards done, too! Also good to note, The Funkie Junkie Boutique is currently having their Black Friday sale which goes through to Cyber Monday.
I used the Reindeer Flight die like Linda, and added a layer of Ranger Grit paste and sprinkled with Distress Clear Rock Candy glitter and just a pinch of Prima Art Sugar for extra sparkle.
I don't have the Stacked Snowflake die, so I used Tim's Snowflake Duo die and embossing folder for two of my layered snowflakes and his Mini Snowflake Movers and Shapers die. Like Linda I laid down my Distress paint, then Glossy Accents. I added Clear Rock Candy glitter to the top flake, Pumice Stone Distress glitter to the middle one, but oops! I picked up the Holographic embossing powder instead of the CRC for the bottom flake! The jars are almost identical. Unfortunately, the holographic EP looks better in person than on camera!
I had some glittery garland lying around, so I cut off a piece to back my snowflakes and used some Recollections half pearls in place of the baubles. I want this card to be flat enough to send easily in the mail, so I left the dimensional elements off. If you have a Fiskars trimmer, you can see if your envelope will post with minimum postage (USA) by slipping it through the cutting opening. If it fits, it ships!
Blurry, but perhaps you can see some of the shimmer!
Oh, what fun I had making this card, and I have to say there's plenty of bang for the buck on this (no pun intended); it was so easy to make, unlike my last card, which I thought I'd never finish!
Most of the products I used can be found at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. I see the Mini Snowflake is already sold out!
I'm sharing this card with:
Time Out Challenge #71- Christmas with an Optional Twist of Glitter/Shimmer I hope you can see my glitter and shimmer--it's very hard to photograph! (12/7)
I'm so please you stopped by and left your lovely comment! I read and appreciate them all!
Hugs and Blessings!
