Bring on the Bling!

Happy Friday!
I hope your week is going well. Are you starting to get some ideas for your Christmas cards this year? My card today is actually pretty simple...some silver embossing, a die cut or two and a bunch of crystals for the bling.

Don't you just love this new Christmas greeting? I silver embossed it but it doesn't show up nearly as nice as it is in real life.  I also broke it up to better fit the layout. The new fancy calligraphy ornament was also silver embossed 4 times and die cut w/ an ornament tag die that fit it pretty well. Then I folded the ornaments in half and glued the back together to make a fan fold or accordion type ornament. The big circle and progressively smaller rings of circles are from a die. After silver embossing the edges and the little swirl image, I added a bunch of crystals for that extra bling. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Wow! The blue is just gorgeous. I wish I could hold this card and take a look at it. I'm sure it is even more spectacular in person.
