The Most Wonderful Time of The Year

Evening folks.
Have you got all your Christmas cards made yet? I know I haven't, I'm a bit behind this year but perhaps the latest challenge at Perfectly CAS will help you.
Here's my inspiration for you.

The ladies over at CAS Mix Up are featuring the oxidized metal technique, something I'm not familiar with, so after investigating the links, I decided to have a go.
The panel I made was used for this tag and the left over bits were die cut with smaller snowflake dies to make this card. The panel coped best with the large die, these smaller dies had a tendency to cause the embossing layer to flake off but a little heat settled it down again.
The original panel was a silver and turquoise colour that had been in my stash for many many years and it was a little distressed around the edges to start with, but that made the end result even more interesting. I only have one reinker, Tumbled Glass DI, so it dictated that I use a wintery theme!
My sentiment from Uniko's Most Wonderful stamp set was stamped and embossed with silver EP on a white base card and the die cut snowflakes arranged around it, leaving lots of white space.
Quite a quick card and very post friendly.

  2. This is sensational, Jules! The silver metallic looks gold or platinum on my monitor, but I love turquoise with any kind of metallic e/p! It looks so pretty on the tips of the snowflakes! Pinning!! Hugs, Darnell
