Bling For Christmas - DT CCC#51

This week's challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges #51 is to use 'bling' on our cards. I have to share a short story about the making of this card.

I had just cleared off my work surface to prepare in the making of this card and threw away a few strips of white cardstock leftovers. For some reason there was a constant thought that I should pull out those strips and use them. I told myself that it was silly, but after not being able to get rid of the thought I went and hauled them out.

I was thinking how much I love white on white and perhaps raised stripes would look great. So maybe testing it would be a good idea, so I created a tag. I loved the look and decided to use the tag on the card! With a few more steps, this is the end result. I ended up adding Star Dust Stickles to the strips to make them pop a bit more and contribute to the 'sparkle & bling' factor of the challenge.

I used gold embossing powder to accent the blues and used gold ribbon at the top of the tag as well. Here are some photos showing the layers of this card.

Hope that you are inspired to join this week's 'sparkle & bling' challenge at Christmas Card Challenges, or enter any Christmas card creation you'd like. To check out the other design team creations and details you can go to their blogs listed below.
