Merry and Bright Card

Hello Everybody!

Happy Friday to You!  Today's project I am submitting to the Moxie Fab Challenge: Deck the Halls.  Go check it out--there is still time to play!

This is a Tuesday Trigger challenge and here is the inspiration picture:

So pretty all of those ornaments.  And do you know what I like best about them---they're shiny!

So my inspiration was color and shiny and smooth.  So what could I make that would incorporate those 3 things?  Well I went back to my friend foil.  I like foil because Ranger's Alcohol Inks like foil (nonporous and all).  So here's my card and scroll down to see how I did it...

First I took these chipboard pieces....

and covered them with foil (regular plain o' household foil).

Then I added alcohol inks, all from the Bright collection.  Green on the green one, Red (watermelon) on the red one, and Blue on the blue one.  I waited for them to dry.  Then out of foil I also made the ring at the top.  From wire I cut the loop and used glue dots to glue it onto the paper inside of the ring.

This is the paper I used for my background-a shiny Bazzill cardstock.  I used the larger card for this also--6.5X5 inches.

I added my sentiment and it's from a set of stickers from Phrase Cafe.

So here is my card again.  I didn't cut just circle out of the foil because I wanted a little depth to the ornaments.  Until next time my friends...stay festive!  (You knew I was gonna say that didn't you?)
