I am back with my other Molten Christmas card, this time in bright sparkly pink for a non-traditional look.
I used the same technique I detailed in my last post here....and the same dies from Clearly Besotted.
One thing I like to do on Christmas cards (that I don't usually do much other times of year) is to mix silver and gold. At Christmas, I feel like I can go all out with glitter, metal, sparkle and shine, so I encourage you also not to hesitate to mix metals for a super-elegant look. The dies I used (Christmas Tree Die and Modern Christmas Die) were lovely prizes from Clearly Besotted.
Here's a close-up of my molten background. The silver I used is not a super-white silver, so I think it goes well with the gold. Several layers of heat-embossing with the silver really brings out the snowflake pattern of this Darice Snowflake Swirl dry embossing.
I mounted everything on a pre-made silvery card base. Do you like the non-traditional colors? I like the nice change they make from the usual red and green, which I also love!! lol...
Thanks for stopping by!! I appreciate all the nice comments I have received today on my first foray into digis. I still prefer the old school red rubber or clear stamps, but I did have a lot of fun with that coffee project.
