Celebrate The Season!


Hi everyone! I love traditional colors for holiday cards but sometimes its fun to steer away from the norm and go a little wild!  I was shopping a few weeks ago and saw a sign using these unicorn colors with silver and I thought to myself " I'm going to make a card like that!" And so I did!


I started by heat embossing the background in silver so I could add in these bright colors over the surface without losing the effect. I chose to work with distress inks because they blend so well and picked the very unicorn-y colors of  pink, purple and turquoise! Once I had the background blended together, I spritzed the whole thing with a mixture of Perfect Pearls and water and then die cut it into three separate rectangles for a bit of interest.


Although the background was pretty and sparkly, it was in need of more glimmer. To add more holiday sparkle, I die cut snowflakes from white and silver glitter paper along with inked stars and layered those throughout the background. The big and pretty 'celebrate' sentiment was cut from shiny silver card stock and popped off of the background with a smaller sentiment added underneath. Now I just have to mail this lovely holiday card!
