Now on to my card details....
For my first sample, I used a sentiment from the Jingle Bells set, and paired that with three of the GORGEOUS Fancy Ornament Dies! I used blue metallic paper, silver metallic paper, and blue card stock from Hobby Lobby, on a white base. I also embossed a layer of white with a Spellbinders EL-009 embossing folder. I embellished with a punched glitter pine bough edge punch from Martha Stewart, and a tiny silver bow. The sentiment is stamped with Memento, and cut with SU! punches.
For my second sample, I used O Little Town of Bethlehem Backgroud.
ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Dies, and the flourish, from the same die set is cut from white glitter paper from my local big box craft store. I love the dimension this added!
I used a prima flower from my stash but to make it more sparkly, I added crystal effects to the tips of the petals and then added chunky glitter. A May Arts ribbon finished it off. This really was a pretty quick card to make! It's simple enough to be made in mass, and yet has enough "extras" to make it elegant and festive.
Here are the ODBD products I used today:
