Silver Christmas - Week 12 Card

Good Evening to you all,


This week's card's colours are white, silver and red. There was a lot of measuring and guillotining for this card as there is quite a few matting layers. The main feature is the embossed pearlescent topper using a new embossing folder which has some of the many phrases associated with Christmas on it.


The insert is another altered digital one from Bearly Mine Designs.


Materials used:
  • Cardstock: Papermill Direct - White Hammered C2 (base); Payper Box - Silver Mirror; Silver Embossed; Black/White Snowflake (matting layers)
  • Paper: Super Smooth Matt Paper (insert); Bearly Mine Design - Christmas Inserts #40
  • Embellishments: Red satin ribbon & square red gems (from stash) 
 And as usual I'm rushing at the last minute - it's been another busy week. I'm entering this card for the usual challenges:
Happy Crafting


  1. What a beautiful card, Elizabeth - glad you got it here in time - love all the layers and the embossing. And what a bonus that insert is - very classy.

  4. Hi Elizabeth, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. Your card is gorgeous, loveteh embossing and the red ribbon just finishes it perfectly, lots of love Steph

  5. Great card Elizabeth.... Super insert. I have informed my hubby this morning that we are going to be crossing the scots border for an adventure. He did look at me a bit odd as we swore we would never go to Scotland again after the last time.... We made the mistake of coming in January which I hear is the worst time to come. We were living on a budget as we were students and we nearly froze to death. You have painted a picture of such a magical place that I am going to give it another try. Saving my pennies now for our adventure and then I wil be asking you loads of questions about where to go. Good luck with your challenges.

  6. Morning, Elizabeth - thanks for popping over to visit me. I've just been scrolling down your blog and you have some great stuff here! Bet you love working in that lovely craft room. Love for now and I look forward to coming over your way again soon. Chrysalis xx

  8. Hi Elizabeth - I've also been browsing your blog and agree that you've got some great ideas. Re. the magnetic bookmarks you just commented on (on my blog) - if you want a few pairs of the self-adhesive magnet pieces (I buy them ready cut and in pairs) do let me know and I'll pop some in the post to you. I have plenty here! Di x
