Must be gold right?
Well, it's definitely gold in the spotlight over on the DCM blog this week as Leo has challenged us to go for gold and only use it against white!
Well, alas I no longer have a supply of gold bits and bobs in my stash arsenal as I got rid of so much of the QVC stuff I thought I'd never use... hm that was well thought out eh? And with it went my gold mirror card.
So last weekend I was shopping with ma and popped into Hobbycraft hoping they'd have just one sheet of gold glitter card in a light gold not a full on 24 carat gold.
They did! And low and behold it was on the 75 p shelf with all the other gold glitter card - 75 pence for a sheet of glitter card, I thought that was OK.
Not so! At the till it came up as £2.45, so I was quite happy to leave that sheet of gold card with them and think of an alternative. Well there was nothing else for it, I'd have to make my own gold glitter card and thankfully I still had a pot of rather dark gold glitter from a different QVC purchase!
I knew what I had in mind, so off I sent in search of the cut file in the Silhouette store and I was off. Here's the final result:
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
Snowflake die: Wplus9
Be Merry frame: KI Memories for Silhouette
Other: gold glitter
Here you can see a bit more of a twinkle when the sun caught it, but for more twinkly definition, behold:
Don't forget to check out the other gleaming projects from the design team over on the DCM blog. Lots of lovely inspiration to be had!
Well, I think this weekend I definitely need to get my Christmas cards in order and determine which ones are going where. Things were all a bit last minute last year what with being on holiday in Florida, but having made a card a week for Christmas so far this year it's a bit of a shock to realise it's now time to get writing them!
