Merry and Bright

As I was thinking about what kind of card I wanted to make for my Christmas cards this year, my mind was still on the glamour and glitz challenge. 

 So I whipped out my Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress equipment and using silver ink and silver rhinestones I played around until I found my christmas muse and it became merry and bright!

I love the debossed look of the dots from the letterpress plate on heavy weight, high cotton paper. I used my trusty silhouette cameo to make the sentiment and it's shadow and bada bling, bada boom the angels began to sing.

I will enter this card into the challenges for bling and texture.

A big thank you to Cissy for helping me find these challenges. Everyone must have a crafting girlfriend to share every craft idea that comes along!!!

    1. you don' think there is a lot of white space,? you have got to be kidding me, it is mostly white space with some silver circle, yeeshuh, you guys are crazy, I am not doing your challenge anymore, so unsupportive.

  5. This is beautifully glitzy Fran, and a super simple design.
    I love that bold sentiment.
    I think all Jen meant was that there is no specific area of complete white space on your card... no offence was intended whatsoever.
    We really hope that you will join us again for another Clean and Simple Challenge.
    Thanks so much

  6. Your Merry and Bright die cut looks fabulous with that background paper and colors! It's a great idea - I admire that you lined everything up so well - wish I could do that!
