A metallic Christmas card featuring the Joyful Holly stamp set

Such a simple card!  .... So hard to photograph!  One day I'll remember that I struggle to photograph metallic cards!

The image from the Joyful Holly stamp set is gold heat embossed onto a piece of Brushed Metallic cardstock.  Then I silver heat embossed the greeting.

I cut a Silver Foil frame with a couple of the Stitched Rectangle dies and then adhered the pieces to the Blackberry Bliss base card.

Final touches were to add the bow of Basket Weave Metallic ribbon and some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The little black cat is my shadow - he follows me from room to room all day ... lucky I don't live in 17th Century Salem!  Mostly, he's well-behaved but as soon as I stand up and turn around, he steals my chair!

Chair thief and bin emptier!

Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!

  1. Beautiful card! I bet this is absolutely stunning in real life! Those cameras just can't pick up the true beauty of anything shiny or sparkly. I've used this set with the retired silver encore ink. It's gorgeous! Your chair thief is precious. He just loves his human! I used to have a cat that would follow me to the neighbors and sit on their front step until I came out and was ready to come home. We'd walk back home together.

    1. Thank you, RaeDeen! Sounds like you had a very special cat and a very special relationship! xx
