JUST US GIRLS #325 - Trend Week


Hello friends and welcome to Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS! Sue is your hostess this week and she's wants you to use METALS/METALLICS on your card or project. Do you have foil papers? Embossing powder in silver/gold/copper/pewter colors? Hoarding those charms or brads? Time to break them out and use them! ☺ Here's the card I made:


 ...and the finished inside:

This card came out much better than I thought it would, considering it has a white on white theme to it. All the card stock and papers are slightly different. For example, I started with a card base that has a linen texture to it. The vertical strip is glittered. The banner was cut from card stock that IRL is very shimmery. With my crack photography skillz, you may not see it, but it shimmers! I heat embossed the sentiment in silver, and also the scalloped circle die behind it. See? 


In hindsight, I probably should have used sliver glitter paper, but me being me, I had to do things the hard way. What's really funny to me is that it looks like I cut it out of duct tape. LOL! For some additional metal elements, I glued a few silver bells onto my card. The inside was stamped in silver ink, and I also edged the panel with it.

I hope you get some time to join us at Just Us Girls for our Metals challenge! Please do check out what our two Guest Designers - Deepti and Vicki - have created, along with my talented teammates! If you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our January challenges, you'll be in the running to be our guest designer for the month of March!

  3. Wow! That silver embossing over your scallop circle is stunning!! I never would've known it was embossed as I thought at first look it was a sheet of silver foil that was die cut! The whole design is so elegant and beautiful!! :)

  9. Very very pretty! And at first glance, I thought you'd found a silver doily! Duct tape didn't cross my mind until you had to point it out... :P
