Silver Bells

Welcome to April!  And it’s time for the Splitcoaststampers Fan Club April Christmas Challenge! We have a year of new Christmas Challenges!  You’ll need to be Fan Club member but that’s easy…just click the blue link to find out how. Bet you’re wondering what the challenge theme is..I’d love to tell you but you’ll have to go see for yourself.

For my Christmas card, I silver embossed the pine bough image across the brushed silver paper then die cut it and a dk gray/sparkle paper. The greeting was also silver embossed on a smaller piece of the dk gray.

The bells image was colored w/ Copics & pretty much all of the cool gray Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut. I kept the greenery on the gray side of green so it wouldn’t stand out so much.

Here are the Copics I used:

    Julie, I am having trouble finding the paper that you showed you used. Do you have the numbers off the paper so I can find it? I love the card and would like to make some like it for my Christmas cards this year. I just need to find the correct paper. Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
    Thanks Margaret
