Less is More wk 31...Metallic

Good Afternoon All and a happy saturday to you all.

This weeks challenge at Less is More is a colour one. We are asked to use Metallic.
Mmm, it`s times like this when I realise how limited my crafty stash is. I`ve wracked my brains and searched the loft and all I can come up with is gold or silver EP but having not missed a week so far I`m certainly not going to miss this one. Here is my first effort,

Not the most creative card I`ve ever made but it`s turned out ok. Not the easiest card to photograph either lol.
I`ve used a snowflake EF by Cuttlebug and, as the panel is larger than the folder, I`ve embossed so much, then moved the card along and embossed the rest. Not as easy as with a repetative pattern but I think it`s lined up alright. I`ve matted the panel onto some silver mirri card and placed it with foam pads.
The sentiment is Papermania Silent Night stamp set, stamped in clear embossing ink and embossed in detail silver EP.I`ve matted that onto silver mirri card too and placed using foam pads.
One silver metallic snowflake to finish and that`s it.
This is my first Christmas card so far this year I think but I`m pleased with the way it`s turned out and will probably do some more like this one in other colours.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
