Technique Junkies – Silver & Gold

Christmas is almost here Junkies and today I’ve got a little holiday inspiration for you.  I hope you get a chance to get inky this holiday week, I know I will.

For my card I began by stamping “Christmas Tree, Set of 6” with Flitterglu and applied Indigo Blu Mega Flake in Chariots of Faire and Winter Dawn.  I did the same process with the fabulous “Snowflakes” stamp then sprayed it all with “Gilded Gold” Fairy Dust by Art Anthology.

For my card base I created an interlocking die background by cutting a flag die out of Silver and Gold pattern paper then lined them up to create a fun background.  This is a take on the Herringbone background that I learned by Shari Carroll.  For my sentiment I used the Tim Holtz Holiday words “noel” die.

We here at Technique Junkies wish each and every one of you and your families the most wonderful holidays and look forward to showing you the great new release coming on January 1st!

  1. What a stunning card. It sounds like it was a lot of work. The silver and gold are stunning together. Congratulations on winning in the Paper Garden contest. It is so well deserved.

    • Thanks Beth – I feel bad about the Paper Garden Contest as I didn’t realize that there would be another vote. I thought if I voted for you that would negate my entry. Will, now that I was chosen as top 3 I did vote for myself 🙂 Thanks for your support. Love your ornament card.
