Welcome to your next stop on the Festive Friday Blog Hop. You should have just came from Laura Davidson’s Blog – Laura Lee’s Dream.
Card number six is based on my theme for my Christmas Cards this year, which is Snow. I will state it is extremely difficult to think of snow when the ground is covered in pollen and it it 80 degrees here. The card is my a horizontal card 4 1/4” x 5 1/2” when folded and was constructed on Blue card stock made by Canson (I have had it for years!) I once again used Metal Tape (I think I have a problem – lol.) The Square embellishment is a piece of cardboard (cereal box) covered with shiny, snowflake wrapping paper. I have no idea who made the wrapping paper… I actually unwrapped a present (when I worked at the hotel) and re-wrapped it in another paper so I could keep this paper – horrible I know. I then applied Navy Dye Ink around the edges and used Pop Dots to give it a 3D look. I then embossed the metal tape with my American Traditional embosser. I took my Glossy Accents and added the snowflakes in the background and I also did the snowflakes on the square. I still wasn’t pleased with the card it needed something… so I pulled out my PLAID Extreme Glitter Paint #2790 Turquoise and brushed it on the square and the metal tape. To my surprise it did not flake or peal off the metal tape!

Beautiful card. We had some fake presents under the tree at work this last year and when christmas was over I took them hope just for the paper. We are crazy, hahahahaWhere does one get metal tape?
Hardware Store: Ace or Home Depot – It is Ducting Tape, great stuff!
