Silver and Blue Christmas


Im back again with another Christmas card.  This one did not photograph well, so you can't see how bright and shiney it really looks.   I made this card for the challenge over at Twisted Tuesday.  Today's challenge is a Photo Inspiration challenge.  Here is the inspiration:


The Twist:  Use an eyelet somewhere on your creation.

My inspiration was the colors.  I decided to use the Silver and Blue and make a Christmas card.  All the paper has been in my stash since last Christmas.  The base cardstock is a silvery white with a swirl design.  The next layer is shiny silver cardstock.  I used the Spellbinder Large Scallop Circle to cut out the center.  I then embossed it with a Sizzix embossing folder.  I put blue eyelets on all the corners and on top of the cutout.  I stamped the ornament stamp from Stamping Up Tags til Christmas set on the base cardstock in Brilliant Blue.  I punched it out with the Ornament punch from Stamping Up.  I used blue ribbon from my stash to hang it in the opening.  I also tied the ribbon on the front of the card.

I will be entering this card in these challenges:
