Global Design Project #271 | Theme Challenge & PP521 – A Color Challenge from Claire

For these 2 challenges I was able to make a card that fit both and it is rather nice when that happens. Global ask for winter/holiday and Paperplayers want silver, black and white. So here is one of my efforts. I may have another one later this week as I’ve gotten another one partially done. For this card I took a scrap piece of black CS and created a mask that would give me the tree shape. I taped a stencil over the opening and carefully sponged white ink through it. Then I heat embossed with additional white. I matted the black layer with some silver foil CS and then added these to the Silver card front. I also heat embossed the sentiment onto some black using my CTMH stamp, then added this piece to another bit of silver foil. I used a bit of the foil for the tree trunk and added some tiny silver stars onto the tree. I had the small silver holographic snowflakes so I scattered them around the tree for added sparkle. I had fun making this one and am very pleased with the result. The holographic snowflakes catch the light and change colour at times.

    1. You just made my day – thank you. That new stencil is great and I am having fun with it. Yesterday I created a panel on black CS using silver embossing paste. It will be fun to find a use for it and have a couple of ideas already.


  1. This is a great card Johanna! I love how you used your stencil to make your tree. Holographic anything adds so much fun to a project and those snowflakes are fabulous on the dark background. You are one talented lady!
