It’s time for a new challenge at AAA Cards! This fortnight we’d like you to create a CAS card with just one image; our optional twist is ‘shimmer’. Our sponsor is Funky Fossil Designs.
I heat embossed a gorgeous ornament image from Julie Hickey Designs and then coloured it with my Twinkling H2o paints. It really shimmers in real life, but it’s so difficult to capture in a photo! I fussy cut around the image and got to work on my card base.
I cut a piece of Hero Arts Nautical cardstock (such a fabulous navy cardstock) and applied a little distress oxide to the centre of the base to create a glow from the ornament. I then spritzed a layer of Pixie Dust across the card before adhering the ornament with foam pads. I then embossed a Mama Elephant sentiment to complete my card.
My team mates have come up with some beautiful cards which are on the AAA Cards challenge blog. We are also joined a previous challenge winner, Joyce, who has some lovely inspiration on her blog!
Hope you can play along with us!
Thanks for stopping by!
ha I thought you inblended the edges instead of the centre, probablt because that’s what I would do, fabulous card
Dark blue and silver is one of my favourite Christmas colour combos and it looks really elegant and stylish on your card.
