Colour Create Challenge 86 - Silver, Blue & White

Hello friends! Ten days til Christmas! For this last Colour Create Challenge of the year, Sharon has chosen some lovely colours; Silver, blue and white along with this fantastic inspirational photo. The 'Extra' for this challenge is Embossing.

Normally the time frame for the challenges are two weeks. However, as this is a busy time of the year, the deadline for this challenge has been extended out to January, 4th, 2012 6:00PM UK time.


And the prize? It's a $30 US Gift Certificate at Michelle's Scrapbooking & More. A very generous amount that will be fun to spend. Just a little note; you've got to check out some of the new prizes we'll have for you in 2012! Some lovely stuff! I can hardly wait!


Now, for my DT Inspirational piece, I wanted to see what a card would like if it was mostly silver (especially since there was a lot of silver in the inspirational photo with all that silver tinsel garland). This is what I ended up with. A most unusual Christmas card. One that my young welder daughter would appreciate with the look of metal. A card using the traditional with a contemporary twist in colour and the amount of foil used. Usually you see foil used as a border.


I decided to do both dry emboss on the silver foil cardstock and heat emboss on the navy and white. Both the navy blue and white where stamped and heat embosses with the same stamp. Then, cutting the oval out of the white I could place it it over the navy, matching up the stamp image. A very simple card to put together, actually.

I'd love to see some of our blog followers enter in the Colour Create Challenge. Remember that the deadline has been extended to January 4th, 2012, by 6:00pm UK time, giving you plenty of time to enter the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my DT Inspirational entry for this challenge. Merry Christmas everyone!
