Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge ~~ September

 Another month has rolled around and it's time for the next installment of HLS Christmas Challenge, the theme is always anything goes but the option this month is Metallic. 

I have a stash of metallic posterboard that I bought at Dollar Tree, I'm glad I have a stash because they no longer carry it. I love metallic on Christmas cards but it is so hard to photograph. So here is my metallic card for the challenge.

I cut my squares of metallic posterboard to the size I needed for a 5 1/2 inch square card and using the wreath die from Gina Marie Designs I cut one from each piece. These were all attached flat. Peace was cut from the blue and several layers of heavy white cardstock to elevate it (hand deliver only card). 

I think I'm going to make a few more of these in some of the other colours, there is a beautiful green and the one that is supposed to be red is more pink but looks great. I also have Gold although that one is used more. The inside of the card is finished but there was a spot in the sentiment that stamped badly (guess I wasn't paying attention that day) it's very noticeable in the photo. Since I'm on a timeline to get done I will fix it later.

Thanks for stopping by today and you know you need to get working on your Holiday cards so stop by to the main blog and enter, it's anything goes with an option.

Metallics are very difficult to photograph but the light caught this one just right. Beautiful wreath and I love the colours!

Beautiful! You definitely should re-create this in different colors.

So pretty, Barb! What a gorgeous wreath in those beautiful metallics! You did great in photographing the metallics along with the pattern of the paper! I like your idea of making more of these - I have metallic posterboard from Dollarama, probably the same as your Dollar Tree posterboard, so I might have to CASE this! I think I have a wreath die but I'll have to check. Have a wonderful day, my friend!
