July Challenge at CCAYR - White, Glitter and Bling

Wow, July already . . . which means that there's a new challenge over on Christmas Cards All Year 'Round (CCAYR).  This month is white, glitter and bling (with add flowers for fun).

Here's the cards I made for the DT Inspiration, they were quite simple to do, my new dies did most of the work, lol.

The first was made using my new Marianne Designables die (DS0908).  I bought it on my recent visit to the Stamp Magic event in Doncaster.   I matted it onto silver mirror card.

I used Stardust Stickles on all the raised areas of the card.

The card sentiment is from my stash as is the white organza ribbon.

The embossed line on the outer edge of the card was made using a Hougie Board . . . love this tool absolutely no measuring required.





This card was also made using a Xcut Aperture die, called Pandora, this time.  Again it was matted onto silver mirror card and Stardust Stickles used to outline the frame lines.

The Poinsettia die is from Marianne Creatables LR0122 and again Stickles was used to emphasise the embossed foliage lines.

The embossed lines on the edge was made using a Hougie Board.




I'm entering these cards into the following challenges

ABC Christmas Challenge 2011 - M is for Monochrome
