Shiny Silver and Blue

Hello, it is Shirley posting today. We are showing off pretty Christmas trees for our challenge this week here at Classy Cards N Such.

I like the gold and silver tree we were given for inspiration, it sure has a classy look. I decided to mix some blue in with my gold and silver tree.

I started with a white card base. I layered it with a piece of shiny blue foil from the Textured Patterns 1 Foil Paper pack. I cut a piece of white card stock and embossed it with a swirls embossing folder to layer over the blue foil.

I cut a Grand Madison Window by PoppyStamps from a white piece of card stock. I used my Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree die, and cut a tree from Silver foil from the Textured Patterns 1 foil paper. I used star punches with gold paper to make the decorative stars. I adhered the stars to the tree and adhered the tree to the window. I added another piece of the blue foil paper behind the tree and window. I  used Joy Small Foam Pads on the back of the window and adhered it to the rest of the card. 

For the  final decorative touch, I used a branch punch to cut branches from the blue foil paper.  I adhered them to the window.  I used the Poppy Stamps Blooming Poinsettia die, to cut the silver foil poinsettia's with the blue foil center.  I used glue to adhere them to the blue foil  branches.

I hoped you enjoyed the card I made to show you today. Join our challenges, invite your friends and let's see your crafty ideas!

Wow! If this is what your Christmas tree is going to look like, I am sorry I don't live closer to come and see it!! That silver and gold tree against the blue and silver foil inside your window looks amazing!! Love how the swirled embossing stand out with the foil behind it and what a lovely flower spray on the window sill!! Just DELISH, Shirley!
