Rainbow Card Challenge - Magically Metallic...

Hi! We have a great new challenge is up at the Rainbow Card Challenge. Here is the inspiration pic.

This challenge is perfect with the festival season just starting. Unfortunately, my card making mojo seems to be taking a holiday! I actually discarded two cards before I started on these. 

One of my tricks for kickstarting design ideas is to go through my existing supplies. I decided to use the Wreath Turnabout stamp set by Concord & 9th and make some easel cards for Christmas. 


I started with two square pieces of cardstock, one red and one ivory. I stamped each turn of the stamp with Versamark ink and heat embossed with Ranger's metallic embossing powders. The shades I used are Gold, Silver, and Copper. I also used Snowflake Tinsel for the red card and the Gold Tinsel for the ivory card.

Here is a look at the red card.

I die-cut the red panel with a circle die. I also cut the circles for the easel card out of ivory cardstock and assembled the card. The sentiment is from the Poinsettia stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps. I stamped it with Versamark and heat embossed with Wow! Glitter Red embossing powder. After trimming it, I popped the sentiment panel up with some foam tape and attached it to the card front.

Here is the open card...

To finish the card, I added nested circles of red and ivory cardstock and a half pearl to prop the card up.

The ivory card was made the same way, with minor differences.

I used the Gold Tinsel instead of the Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder. I also matted the sentiment panel and used copper embossing powder for heat embossing.

Here is the open card.

I am very happy with the way these cards turned out. I hope you liked my cards as well and look forward to your creations in our gallery. Please do visit the  Rainbow Card Challenge for more inspiration and to link your cards to the gallery.
