Sparkle & Shine | SSS December Card Kit

Hello! Today I have two more cards to share that I created with the December Simon Says Stamp card kit. One of them is similar to this card I shared here but I changed it up a little bit and have a video to share showing how I created it. Before we get to that one, I have another one to share that is completely tone on tone with all of the great silver elements from the kit.

This card features the awesome silver cardstock that comes in the kit as well as the vellum, the navy blue cardstock and the Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I wanted to keep this card really focused on the various shades of silver, so I didn't add any additional colour to it except the navy and the sheer vellum.

I love the soft colours and the way the silver embossing powder with that awesome sentiment stamp are the focal point on the card. So classy and elegant looking! ;)

For the second card, I did the exact same design as last weeks card but with the addition of the Platinum Silver embossing powder and more stripes than the first one. I love the mix of gold and silver together.

(It's really hard to photograph shiny, glittery embossing powder and get it to look as good as it does in real life lol!)

I love how easy it is to create a striped pattern on a card front by simply using washi tape, embossing ink and embossing powder. Stripes go with any occasion and you can change it up just by switching the direction - you can put them vertical, horizontal and even diagonal for a more playful look.

To see how I created this card, you can watch the video below:


I also have to announce that the winner of the December Simon Says Stamp card kit from this post here is Teresa Doyle! Huge congrats Teresa! Please email me your contact info and I'll get your kit sent out! ;)
