Silver Bells, Silver Bells….it’s Christmas Time in the City….

seasonal-bells-1116I told you that I start singing when certain words or phrases are written or spoken.  I can’t help myself!  My MIL is the queen of this!  Of course most of the songs that she starts singing are REALLY old and I’ve never heard of them.  Ha!

This is a card that I designed for my Christmas Card Buffet and I also used it for a few workshops/parties.  Simple, yet elegant.  That’s the kind of card I really like.  A card that says “wow” but doesn’t take three hours to create.  The Silver Foil Sheet is what gave this card the “wow” factor.  I could have used Smoky Slate card stock but it just wouldn’t have been the same.

Be sure to use Black StazOn Ink when stamping directly on the Silver Foil Sheets.  It won’t smear.  Speaking of Silver Foil Sheets…I think I would have actually used another layer of Silver Foil between the white background and the blue card to tie things together.  I think it would have given the card a more finished look.  I didn’t do it for class just to make things a little simpler.  Another little tip when using the foil sheets is that you should use Mini Glue Dots or Fast Fuse Adhesive.  You need a strong adhesive when working with the shiny, glossy surface.

It’s been a chilly few days here in Denver.  I thought I was back in the Minnesota Homeland there for awhile with high temperatures in the low teens and lows actually below zero!  BRRRR!  Lucky for us it’s warming up today and I can put the parka in the back of the closet until the next cold front arrives!

Have a warm and cozy day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
