LIM 243 - Shiny Stuff!

The challenge this week at Less is More is a recipe challenge.  We're to make a card to include something "shiny". (can I just say that I keep typing shinny! LOL!)

I made three cards...I think perhaps this first on is my favorite.  I am really a CAS kind of card maker!

I cut the scalloped edge with the Cameo.  I scored some shiny green card stock at 1/8 inch intervals and adhered it directly to the card base.  I stamped the sentiment from SU and heat embossed it in gold.  I added small green bling pieces at the point of each scallop and then popped the scalloped panel over the shiny green scored piece with fun foam. Super quick and easy!

On this second card, I cut the tree (Impression Obsession) from shiny green card stock, adhered it to a white card base, then added a few small sequins for ornaments. The star is also a die from Impression Obsession and is cut in shiny silver card stock. The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and is a stamp from Paper Smooches. I rounded the bottom corners of the card.

I'm not sure what look I was going for in this card, but it didn't quite turn out like I had envisioned it. I cut the diamond shapes from silver shiny card stock and adhered the diamonds to some copper foil card stock.  Then I cut out a Spellbinder ornament shape. The sentiment is dies from Tim Holtz and was cut in the white panel and also from the copper card stock. I then pieced the copper letters back into the white card panel.  I added some copper lines around the edges of the panel and popped it up on the card base with fun foam.

I still think I like the first one best....which is your favorite? (and can I just say...photographing this shiny card stock is very difficult!!)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!

A trio of shiny CAS beauties! Well done for creation all these, and for photographing them, you're right, it's a nightmare! I love the elegance of the first but I think the tree has won my vote. (PS...I keep trying to write 'shiney'Ha!)
Thanks for sharing with us.
