Silver Bells....

And you thought I was talking Christmas, didn't you??? Hee Hee I have to thank Gina K for this beautiful beautiful technique!! As you know, Gina gives us a weekly technique video to review and try our hands at. And man... she really hit the mark with this one!!! I totally LOVE how the "Tone-on-Tone" looks. And it's not just in silver. You should see some of the work the other gals over on Stamp TV have done with this technique!! They are all just so gorgeous!! I must say I simply LOVE this ribbon as well. While shopping with my mother-in-law one day I told her I liked it but it was wired and I didn't really like working with wired ribbon. Honestly... you CAN take the wire out and it's just fine. But, she talked me into buying it and I did and now I am sooooo happy she did that! I just think it's so striking!! But I admit, I have used wired ribbon on some cards and you CAN work with it... it just takes a bit of fussin. I also added silver embossing to the inside of this card and thought I'd share it with you. It's amazing how people look at you and think... "You know HOW to make that raised lettering????" They are in shock that it can be done. LOL But truly, before we call learned about embossing powder and a heat gun, don't you remember wondering how they created that effect on cards when you were buying at your local gift shop??? LOL You need to make sure you hop on over to Stamp TV and check out Gina's videos. With Christmas coming she has plenty of ideas she is sharing. Have a great day!!! *smile* Signature
