CAS Christmas Reminder Jan. 2022 - Silver & Gold

Hello friends.  Just a reminder that there's still still time to play along with the SILVER & GOLD challenge over at CAS Christmas.


I have another quick and simple card to share with you today...


I used Poppystamps Noel Snowflake die and die cut it once in gold mirror cardstock, once in silver cardstock and cut off just the snowflake to glue over the gold snowflake, and then die cut twice from white cardstock just to add some dimension and sturdiness to this very fragile die cut.  (Have you all discovered Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue yet??  It has a precision tip that never seems to clog and is just perfect for gluing fine die cuts together...it has been one of my greatest finds of 2021!!)  


I dry embossed a snowflake background using SU!'s Winter Snow ef, and then matted it with a piece of gold mirror cardstock, and then attached both layers to a top folding white card base.  I added a single silver metallic pearl (PFS) to the center of my snowflake, and this card was finished.  

You have until the 24th to play along with this challenge, and if you need some inspiration, check out what the talented DT came up with using SILVER & GOLD right HERE.  


Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  13. I just love the embossed snowflakes behind your beautiful Noel die cut with the pretty snowflake hanging down from it Marcia. The gold framing really defines the panel! Thanks for the tip on that glue - I'm always trying to find something that doesn't clog after the first use! xx

  14. Such a lovely card, Marcia! The embossed snowflakes elegantly echo the die-cut snowflake. The shine of the gold mirror matte and sentiment is amazing!
    Thanks for the info on the Bearly Art Precision Craft Glue! I saw it on Jennifer McGuire's video some time ago, but I was not convinced at that time. Now with your comment on the product, I'll definitely buy it. :-)
