A bejeweled Christmas card

November 14, 2009 at 11:54 am 11 comments

Todays inspiration challenge was to create something based on one of the designs by Lorelie Kay  The piece I chose is  {here}  – when I first saw it I imediately thought of a turquoise snowflake – but I wanted it to look like a piece of jewelry, so this is what I came up with.

IC206 jeweled snowflake

The card came together surprisingly quick – perfect for when you need to make some quick holiday cards.  The snowflake was created by using spray adhesive on cardstock then applying Martha Stewart glitter (turquoise color) and letting it dry, then punch out a snowflake (ms punch).  The background cuttlebug folder of holiday ornaments  is a new one – and it is a larger size – 5 x 6 – so you can make larger cards and have the entire card front embossed!! 

On top of the snowflake is a hatpin with pearls and chrystals and on top of that a flattened bead cap with a turquoise rhinestone.  Clear rhinestones were added at the botton of the scalloped to add even more bling!  Here is a close up of the snowflake.

This was quick and easy and I think I will make more in different colors – red and gold would look especially festive!

Thanks for stopping by!

    You were successful in making that snowflake look like a piece of jewelry. It’d be lovely on a simple, black cashmere sweater. The entire card is great.

    Very quickly its potential was realized and the giclee canvas prints
    started to come by. The printer ink cartridges would have a
    microchip to communicate its level of remaining ink to the printer and computer.
    Similar five-page text and graphics prints, such as colour graphics, took almost 90 seconds,
    or just below 3.
