Vibrant Christmas - Take Two

Here's another card that was inspired by this fortnight's challenge prompt of the lovely Jingle Belles. Apart from the colours, I was also inspired by the gold flourishes against the black of the placemats.

 For this card I wanted a little play with my new Gelatos. Because I had read they could be used on dark cardstock, I took a piece of black cardstock and blended some colours using my fingers. I then heat-embossed the gorgeous stag stamp by Flourishes in gold. I die cut the panel and the thin frame (from pink metallic cardstock) using a Simon Says Stamp die and then went overboard again with my sequins.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Jingle Belles - A very vibrant Christmas

Cupcake Inspirations - 300th Challenge Celebration - Sparkle Inspiration Challenge

Happy Little Stampers - Sponging 
(I trust using my fingers as a bleding tool also counts)


  1. What a fun inky technique ... love the sequins ... so glad you joined us again at jingle belles.

  2. The gelatos look really pretty on the black background. Love this paired with the gold embossed image. Thanks for playing along at Happy Little Stampers.

  3. What a gorgeous card, exquisite, really!

  4. Oh how pretty! Thanks so much for joining in the fun for the Cupcakes Inspirations 300th Challenge Celebration!

  5. once again, i offer the opinion that "overboard" and "sequins" really only make sense if there is a boat, lol. on a gorgeous holiday card such as this, they are brilliant in every sense. love the reindeer, and the swirls... love everything about this, actually! well done... AGAIN!!! :)

  6. Wow! This is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it at our 300th challenge at Cupcake Inspirations!
