Metallic Inspirations- CardMaker Blog Hop

Hi there!  It's time for the monthly CardMaker Blog team hop. The theme is Metallic Inspirations---create a card that is shiny and sparkly. You can use mirrored card stock, glitter, metallic finished, etc.---anything that is metallic and shiny. Cards can be any occasion.

Here is my metallic, shiny, glittery mirrored, sparkly creation:

And here is a picture of the card lying down so you can see some more of the glitter, sparkle, etc:

Took the challenge quite literally, eh!? 
Mirrored- check
Glitter- check
Sparkly- check
Shiny- check

I used some beautiful chipboard from This & That- Christmas collection (Echo Park) that I have been hoarding and layered it on some fabulous paper I found.  It is pretty cool...it's mirrored and then has circular glitter circles.  (Cool, but hard to photograph!)

I used an SRM sticker from Fancy Sticker Sentiments- Christmas for the sentiment and I added a silk ribbon that I gathered with a piece of cord and then added a glittery sparkly snowflake with an extra rhinestone center on top.  I added another rhinestone to the first reindeer's nose (Rudolf!) and to the sentiment .  Finally, I punched a corner from a glittered area of the card stock to add to the corner of the sentiment.

Supplies: Sentiment- Fancy Sticker Sentiments- Christmas (SRM Stickers); Chipboard Accents- This & That Christmas (Echo Park); Patterned paper- This & That: Christmas- Poinsettias, Red (Echo Park Paper); Speciality paper- Metallic foil -Recollections (Michael's); rhinestones- Recollections (Michael's)- Snowflake bling- Jolee's (EK Success).
Cannot wait to get a gander at what my awesomely talented teammates came up with:

Thank you so much sharing this post I like this post I also share with you some tips hope you like Track hours for payroll with ease. Make dual-purpose ID cards by creating a plastic overlay that adheres to any proximity or HID card. Transform an access card to a photo ID plus an access card, all in one.ID Card Maker

Nice I also share with you something hope this helpful for you my friends Evolis printers can be considered a premier choice in terms of creating ID badges for employees, customers, visitors, and students in regards to both security and traffic management. They also work with a number of applications that are driven by access control such as high security areas as well as areas in which crowd control is vital, such as amusement parks and ski resorts.
