YIKES

ABC Christmas Challenge for the month of December is Y for Yikes and Z for zooming.  YIKES is right.    Yikes because here it is almost Christmas and I never even used all the new stuff i bought for my cards this year.  Yikes because here it is almost Christmas and I never even used all the new stuff i bought for my cards LAST year.  Surprised smileYikes because i wanted to do this very simple card and two hours later it is finally completed.  I couldn’t figure out how to get the glitter onto those snowflakes and then onto the cards.  I think my brain is worn out.  I thought i was working with double stick paper but i was only using one stick side, i tried spraying the backs with adhesive and then the front would hold the glitter.  I made a mistake and tried to use embossing glitter and that didn’t work at all.  YIKES i am sick of working on this so called simple card.  But to my credit, i prevailed, and here it is!! 

 
What i ended up doing was using some one sided sticky paper.  I cut out the stars using my new MFT snowflake dies.  Peeled the backs off and poured the glitter onto the sticky side, burnished with a paper over them and a pop sickle stick.  Sprayed the backs with spray adhesive, stuck them on and added a sticker border.  The sentiment from MFT embossed nicely with Tsukineko #02 Silver.  This is the best shiny silver embossing powder i have used.  I love the shiny embossing it gives.  I had some other stuff that embossed kind of gray metallic instead of silver and I love this one.   Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Oh, bless, Janeen, good for you for persevering! It IS a lovely CASlicious card, even though it ended up not being an EASY card to make! I think we are all in the YIKES wagon when it comes to failing to use up our NBUS again for another year!! I wish you happy holidays and all the best in the new year!! Hugs, Darnell

  2. My gosh! This card--I would have tossed in the towel long ago. Love the silver embossed greeting. That's some awesome powder. Actually the whole card is awesome. Great job and great job at hanging in there and getting it done.
