Creation Station Blog Hop - Metallics Gone Wild!

Welcome to Creation Station's Blog Hop for the month of December! We are focusing on Metallics! So with Christmas coming, I decided to make a Christmas card (with a fun-surprise inside!).

Insert Burl Ives, 'Silver and Gold', probably one of the best Christmas songs of my childhood - I loved when those Christmas specials came on TV (before we had VCRs, DVDs, YouTube and all that). We had to actually watch it when it aired - crazy that those days don't seem that long ago...

But, back to the card, Silver and Gold... in it's finest! The card is really Silver, Gold and White (not gray, if only lighting and my camera would give me some help in showing that!)! I love the simplicity, but elegance to the look of this card!

And here's a little close-up of the Silver Foil scalloped oval frame, and Stitched Oval die-cut with the saying from Merry Little Wishes...

And for the fun-surprise inside - a gift holder slotted pocket! I scored the base of the card at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2". And, on the 2-3/4" end, I pushed the Classic Label Punch all the way in (till it rested against the cardstock edge), and punched. I moved it over a bit and did the same - to create a little bit wider Classic Label. And then I used Tear& Tape to seal down that edge to the card inside. - Wahlah! - a beautiful snug little pocket for a gift card, or maybe cash.

And, finally, I added a gold embossed For, From from the Merry Little Labels set as well - for a quick inside!

I hope you enjoyed your stop! And I know you'll be impressed with the fabulous Andrea Tracy-Tucker's creation, up next...  

Thanks for stopping by,
