Sparkle and Shine this Holiday Season...

There aren't many cards I could stand to reproduce multiple times, but I think this would have to be one of the few! Playing along with Virginia's View All Things Metallic, Less Is More Colour Challenge - Non-Traditional Christmas (even though my "white" space is blue), and Mama Elephant and Me Holiday Cards and Tags, with more homework from Online Holiday Card Class Homework Day 1. Inspired by Kristina's easy to ink background, using Distress Ink Black Soot to on navy textured cardstock to create the night sky, then stamping with Mama Elephant Believe in Magic star cluster and Winter Wonderland large star in Momento Luxe white ink and sentiment in silver super fine embossing powder. The Memory Box Countryside die cut is cut with the doors and windows having added Wink of Stella Clear Sparkle, as does the night sky.

Variation on a theme using Mama Elephant Merry Greetings sentiment.



  1. I just love how clean and crisp this design is...and then you topped it off with all that silver shine and embossing! Totally FAB, Lyndal! So glad that you join the fun over Virginia’s View “All About Metallic” Challenge!

  2. Absolutely stunning! Love, love, love your take on Kristina's inspiration.

  3. Another stunning and striking card Lyndal and so pleased you've shared it at LIM. I may have to CASE this one especially as I have that memory box die too!

  6. WOW!!! I am in love with the ombre sky. Both cards are STUNNING!!

  7. This is so pretty! I love the diecut perfect for this wintry card!

  8. Lyndal, both of your cards look very beautiful! The contrast between the night-blue-sky and the white landscape is great!
