My project today is a shimmery Merry Christmas card made with the Merry Christmas to All Bundle and the Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Paper! I made it for a team challenge that my upline posted on our team Facebook page, but it was perfect for my blog post today as well! Most of what is used on this card has a bit of shimmer to it. The Shimmery White cardstock base, the green DSP strip, the ribbon, and even the embellishments all have a shimmery coating to them! It’s SO pretty in person!
The background of this card is embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I also used the Stitched Shapes Framelits, as well as the Leaf and Sprig Punches, and dies from the Pretty Pine Thinlits for the accent leaves on the sides. Besides the Shimmery White cardstock, I also used Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, and Vellum cardstock on this card as well. The card is finished with a few Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, as well as some Merry Merlot & Copper Reversible Ribbon. Take a peek at the pic below to try to get a glimpse of the shimmer (it’s hard to get a good pic of it!):
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Shimmery White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Shimmery White top layer (embossed): 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Frosted Floral DSP strip: 2-1/4 x 5 inches
Shimmery White stitched circle: 2-15/16 in diameter
Merry Merlot “Merry” sentiment: 1-1/2 x 3-3/4 inches (approximate)
Leaves: various sizes (approximately 1-1/2 x 2 inches for each color
I am so pleased with how this card turned out! I really love the colors! The Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow are such a gorgeous red/green combination for the holidays, especially when combined with the Shimmery White. And would you have believed a year ago that we would have colors such as these as part of the Neutrals palette? I wouldn’t, but I have to say, I just love the pop of color they add to the palette!
I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Please let me know if you have questions. Thank you for visiting!
