Season's Greetings

I made this card for the Cinema Saturday Challenge. The movie this week is Iron Man and the challenge was to use metal in our creations.

I loved Iron Man but never did see the second one - must go put that in my Netflix queue! Because I've been forcing myself to make either Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas cards for as many challenges as I can these days, I took my color combo inspiration from the Iron Man suit and thought it would be perfect for a Christmas card! I can't believe how fast we're moving into fall and how fast the holidays will be here!

I found my giant snowflake punch and popped a snowflake out of this bit of patterned paper. I thought the gold and burgundy color scheme was pretty close to the colors of the Iron Man suit and thought the jingle bells were another good metal element that went well with the gold/burgundy. I finished the card off with an outline of stickles and some heat embossing for some extra shimmer.

Supplies: Stamps - Many Merry Messages (SU!), Punch (Marvy Uchida), Cardstock - Bravo Burgundy, Very Vanilla (SU!), Gold Embossing Powder (SU!), Ink (Versamark), DP - Handmade (K&Co.), Jingle Bells (Crafta), Crinkle Ribbon (Etsy), Stickles
