Well, guess whose turn it is to pick the Daring Cardmakers Dare this week - yours truly!
I've challenged the team and our readers to make a card that sparkles and shines. :) Full details are over on the blog here.
For my sparkly shiny element I was determined to get some of my Tim Holtz silver tinsel trim on a card this year:
Paper: Basic Grey, Crate Paper
Dies: Concord and 9th, Spellbinders
Other: tinsel trim, 3D foam tape
Well I simply can't resist word dies that offer some versatile ways to use them. My new "JOY" die from Concord and 9th is a great example. Here I've used it in the regular way, to simply cut out the letters. But I am also looking forward to using the negative of this die on a future card and perhaps making it a shaker feature. I just need to get some acetate sheets at some point!
In the meantime I was happy to delve into my left-overs of last year's (final) Basic Grey Christmas release - Juniper Berry. Love that polar bear paper and the lovely aqua snow flurries in the background. A great contrast for the white and cream stripes from Crate Paper's last Christmas release before the 2016 one!
