Night Before Christmas Card

Hello Bloggers,

A dark card today. :) Very dark blues. Die-cut and embossed.

Marianne Design Cr1224 LR0393 LR0377 Precious Marieke PM10051 Memory Box Star Of Wonder 98167

I used some silver Inka-Gold gloss paint to accentuate the embossed sentiment and create some
lighting effect on the tree. All the other embossing is pure and untouched.

Sequins and gems add some shimmering that is, as usual, difficult to catch on camera.

I brought in a little splash of a different colour by adding jungle bells in the top left corner. They really … well… I cannot call the sound they make ring, rather rattle. :) Anyways, now I am wondering how I am going to post them with all the rattle :)

The dark colors are so pretty and I love the dash of color you put on the card with the bells! The snowflakes behind the design paper are a nice touch and the combination of dies are great :)
