A Christmas card featuring a panel of Mercury Glass Acetate backed by Copper Foil Sheet
Here's an idea for a quick, simple but effective Christmas card - or change the die cut and sentiment to make a card for any occasion!

The base card is Smoky Slate to which I've added layers of Basic Black and Pretty Peacock.  I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder to add some texture and pattern to the Pretty Peacock layer.

I cut pieces of Copper Foil Sheet and Mercury Glass Designer Acetate to the same size and adhered the acetate on top of the copper.
TIPS:  I found I could get away with using the tape type of adhesive - I added it to the back of the acetate around the edges.  Remember to peel away the protective layer from the acetate before you use it!

I popped the resulting silver and copper background onto a layer of Basic Black and adhered to the card front.

In order to continue the shiny theme, I cut the deer from Black Foil Sheet but I'm sure Basic Black cardstock would also work well.  Having glued the deer to the centre panel, I added a Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewel for an eye.

I cut one of the greetings from the roll of Classic Weave Ribbon.  It needed a bit more oomph, so I kept it simple by adding a couple of strips of Mint Macaron ribbon and some more of those Holiday Rhinestones.

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
