Christmas Sentiment Background Cardmaking Project by Glynis Bakewell

I did warn you that we are loving gold and silver as a colour combo for this Christmas! Just look at this fabulous project that Glynis has created using a variety of the Chloes Creative Cards Christmas crafting products. During this project you'll be stamping and embossing and adding lots of Sparkelicious glitter to make your project sparkle and shine!

How to make this project - 

  1. Mat and layer a piece of gold mirror card to the base card. Cut to size a piece of the Crystal White Pearl Card for your next layer, using the small square snowflake stamp from the Layered Poinsettia Corner Stamp Set, stamp and heat emboss using the gold and silver ink pads (this is so you can see where you are stamping) and Twinkling Lights and Silver Dollar Embossing Powders.
  2. Stamp along the top with the gold ink pad and heat emboss the Twinkling Lights Embossing Powder, change the colour of the ink and powder and go half way down one of the sides and just keep repeat this process all the way around the card, glitter the four sides with Diamante Sparkle and then mat and layer this onto the gold mirror card and glitter the gold parts with Salted Caramel Sparkelicious and the silver parts with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious.
  3. Cut a piece of patterned paper from the Festive Fancies Foiled Paper Pad into a rectangle, glitter around the edges with the Diamante Sparkle and mat and layer onto gold mirror card, secure the white ribbon from top to bottom on the left hand side and mat and layer onto the base card with foam pads.
  4. Cover half of the Christmas Sentiment Background stamp with the silver ink pad and the other half with the gold ink pad, sprinkle the matching embossing powder over (i.e. Silver Dollar and Twinkling Lights) and heat with the gun.
