JustRite Joy of Christmas

Still playing with my new JustRite set called "Christmas Treasures" and yet another new set of Shapeabiliteis Fleur de Lis Pendant. I was resisting so hard and did not buy any of the Shapeabiliteis until I saw this JustRite Set, I couldn't stand it any longer, they are a perfect pair!!

This card measures 6" x 6".

Really, this card looks SO MUCH better in real life!! Believe me, it's looks so pretty in metallic navy blue cardstock and the white cardstock has pretty shimmer in it!!

I used my Scor-Pal to make the grid on the background layer. To create the snowflake medallion behind the image, I cut and embossed two squares with Shapeabiliteis Fleur de Lis Pendant, I then layered them together by offsetting one over the other. Sentiment inside of the card is from the same JustRite stamp set. Both sentiments and the image in the circle on the front of the card were heat embossed with JudiKins Embossing Powder in Lapis Lazul, it looks oh so beautiful in real life!! You might be able to see it better if you enlarge the close up photo of the medallion. Circles were cut and embossed with Nestabilites.

I wanted to show you how I made these beautiful filigree corners. I took some photos too so you can see.. First I cut and embossed squares with the smaller die from the same Shapeabiliteis set and then cut the squares diagonally in half. The last step is to clean them by trimming, see photo 2. Those swirly things on the top and the bottom of the sentiment inside of the card were done the same way, but I also cut off the sides of the triangles. I don't know if I am making much sense, it is late at night, around 2 am ;-) .
