This week I am all about silver and shimmer!

Step by step instructions on blog, Detailed Deer dies, woodland embossing folder 2019 Christmas card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

This was actually a super fast card to make! Here's what I did:

  1. Prepared a top folding standard C6 size (1/2 A4 cut vertically and folded) using Seaside Spray cardstock.
  2. Cut a second layer of Seaside spray cardstock 9.8cm x 14cm (o4 3 & 13/16 x 6.5 inches)
  3. Emboss this layer using the Woodland embossing folder. 
  4. Using a sponge dauber and your Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink pad, sponge silver metallic ink over the embossed parts of the tree and branches. Put aside to dry for 10-15 minutes. (Tip: The manufacturer recommends not speeding up the drying time with heat, as it diminishes the lustre of the stamped image). Once dry, adhere to the card base using Multipurpose Glue or Snail.
  5. Die cut a nested label using whisper white cardstock. I have used the second largest one.
  6. Stamp a greeting bottom left side of the label, using the Silvery Shimmer Delicata ink. Set aside to dry for 10 minutes.
  7. Die cut the deer shape from Detailed Deer (in the Annual Catalogue). Adhere with Dimensionals onto the nested label (you can also add a glue dot to the antlers). Add three small rhinestones around the deer.
  8. Adhere this whole nested piece to the centre of the card using Dimensionals.

I'm obsessed with the Delicata inks right now.  Hands down the BEST metallic inks I have ever used. Air dries in 10-15 minutes, no smudging and has great lustre. It would be pretty quick and easy to whip up a batch of these Christmas cards too.

Lovely card, Claire. I love blue and silver for Christmas and that deer is still a favourite. I might have to succumb to the metallic inks.

Beautiful card Claire. Thanks for the tips for using the Delicata inks. Mine have just arrived and I am looking forward to playing with them.

I’m obsessed too with these inks and I love your sponged silver trees, stunning!

Wow, so pretty, and I love the silver sponged trees. I will have to try that!

Gorgeous colours and card Claire, I love the layout too. I must try my metallic inks.

Gorgeous card Claire. I could see this design mass produced in many colours. The metallic ink looks fantastic sponged onto the tree trunks. I've purchased the copper metallic ink and I'm looking forward to trying it out soon. Your video was really informative too!

Such a gorgeous card Claire and I love the colour combination! The metallic ink looks so good on the trees too! I need to get out these inks and have a play!
