Let me start by sharing some fabulous news! Monica from Add A Little Dazzle has asked me to join her Design Team! I am so excited to be a part of this team of lovely and talented ladies. So without further ado, let me get to my first project using Add A Little Dazzle's Craft Metal Sheets~
Yes, my project is a Christmas card; it is Christmas in July at Add A Little Dazzle this month, and for our first challenge, challenge #32, out challenge is Cards That Move OR Anything Goes.
I found this wonderful tutorial at Splitcoaststampers for this motion card. It utilizes a tag to slide the window up and reveal the sentiment.
Here is a side view to have a better idea of the action in this card.
I made the basic mechanics of the card base, following the above tutorial. Then it was time to embellish. I stamped my ornament from the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Vintage Ornament Set in Versanark on Polished Purple sheet metal; I wanted m ornament to look like shiny glass, and this craft metal was the perfect way to achieve this. I embossed with Stampendous chunky embossing powder and then fussy cut the ornament out.
It was hard to capture the beautiful purple shimmer of the metal; you can catch a glimpse of it here. I framed the ornament in a Decorative Frame and cut out with its matching die.
To embellish the card base, I cut a scallop edge from a Brushed Bronze craft metal sheet using a die from the Borders and Backgrounds Die Set and then embossed it in a polka dot ef. Once it was embossed, I used a stylus on the backside of the metal just to give it a little definition. Ribbon was all that was needed to finish off this elegant card.
I hope you can join us for this fun Christmas Challenge!
