Silver Christmas

Waltzingmouse Stamps is having their September Pajama Party and I decided to join in at the last minute.  This card is for their Old Pajamas challenge to use an older Christmas set.  You can see the challenges here.

I envisioned using a blue and silver color combo, so I pulled out some Enchanted Evening cardstock and silver embossing powder.  First, I cut out the ornament shape using an older Spellbinders die and then embossed the ornament.  I then added the sentiment and embossed it as well.  For my card base, I outlined a frame using a silver paint pen and stamped branches from a retired SU set called Peaceful Wishes using shimmery VersaMark ink and the masking technique.  The ornament is popped up to add a bit of dimension.

Stamps:  Ornate Ornaments (Waltzingmouse); Peaceful Wishes (Stampin' Up)
Ink:  Frost Dazzle (VersaMark)
Paper:  Enchanted Evening (Stampin' Up)
Misc:  2010 Heirloom Ornament die (Spellbinders); silver embossing powder; silver paint pen; pop-dots
