I used (besides the contortions):
- DL white card stock
- silver mirri card
- blue mirri card with silver stars already embossed
- the lovely tree with baubles die cut came from Tracey, as I already said. I've no idea if the die is available to buy but it's a lovely tree - if you do have or know what this die is called and who makes it please let me know in a comment and I'll amend this post accordingly
- the 'Merry Christmas' was die cut using Britannia dies and silver mirri card, I just popped a teeny crystal gem above the letter i to finish it off
- ribbon from one of my ribbon boxes topped with a rolled ribbon 'bow' and a clear crystal gem
The blue card with silver stars came from JJD Cards, a brilliant place for grabbing Kanban card - Elizabeth and I have been running in and out lately doing some online shopping there. They also stock satin mirri card (the red one is to die for!) plus the sparkling self adhesive film I've been using lately. AND, both Elizabeth and I were sent some fabulous free card stock, beautifully embossed and foiled - and I don't think either of us spent a really huge amount of money. It's so nice when suppliers add in little surprises like that :)
This card is for Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for September, where it's always 'Anything goes'.
Thanks for the hint of how to photograph that @#$% mirror paper! You did it though. What a beautiful card! And to think that was a free die! Beautiful!ReplyDelete
I think where in the wrong job here. Just been trying to take a photo of a box showing the acetate reflection on the top and each time I do it comes out flat as a pancake!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Great card btw. Hmm did you Menuhin freebies?? I'm on me way. Hugs Mrs A. (Your partner in crime).
Fab card, great freebie and well done on your "contortions" too - they worked just great!ReplyDelete
A gorgeous finished card .. .. well worth the contorting (is that the right word?) to get a good picture.
I thought you have embossed a stamp to begin with.
Lovely ribbon feature too.
Have a good week.
Love Jules xx

Beautiful card! Gorgeous!!!!! Thanks for the anti-contortionist tips. I just gave up and went for glare but I'm lazy like that.ReplyDelete
It's lovely and yes, I've used the one I had and loved it so much had to go and buy it!ReplyDelete
Beautiful colours and that tree is gorgeous, can just imagine it in green satin mirri. I have never been able to photograph mirri without some appendage showing so thank you for the tip. Hugs, Amanda xReplyDelete

Sorry to be so late in complimenting you on this lovely sparkly card. Just trying to catch up over at CHNC and looking for familiar names to visit. This is really pretty and you did a nifty photo job. Thanks for the tip - my photography needs all the help it can get. Love the combo of the silver & blue, and this was a wonderful die to get as an extra. Lucky you. And you used it to such effect. TFSReplyDelete
