House of Cards

This is the second post for August 1st. If you’re here to see The Heat is On, from Poppystamps, please click here: Metallics House of Cards has something new and exciting for our August Challenge, Metallics! We all love cards that shine, sparkle, and feature pretty metallic touches! Get all the details and link up your own metallic inspired card over at House of Cards right here: IMG_1931-wm Is it ever too early for crafters to start thinking about Christmas? The weather is hot, but so are all the new holiday dies coming out right now! I used the new Skybrook Ornaments and Valley Snowflakes from Poppystamps to create this shiny card! IMG_1935-wm Like any card that features metallic papers, this card catches and reflects light in beautiful ways (and can also make photographing a challenge too)! I used silver and gold card stock, along with a beautiful royal purple thin foil that looks very dark head on in a photo. But in person, the silver and purple combination is a winner! IMG_1929-wm On the inside, I added a bit of shiny silver JOY from the Contour Typewriter Keys from Memory Box. I love that extra pretty detail during the holidays! House of Cards will be bringing you marvelous metallic inspiration all month! There is so much going on you won’t want to miss a thing! Thanks for joining me today! Live your life in color! michele-sig-new-1
