Heavy Metal

Good Afternoon!  What a great day, just drove North for two hours to pick up my beautiful Mom to share this lovely Thanksgiving week.  I am so happy, so grateful, so lucky!  Happy Thanksgiving to you all, may you be surrounded by love and turkey!  :)

Creative Corner has a Heavy Metal Challenge this week.  Add something metallic to your project.  I added a couple of things to mine.

My metallic items are the 2 silver jingle bells and the wire star I wrapped on top of my tree.  Just took some ordinary wire and using my Thing A Ma Jig (a wire wrapping pegboard) I created the star quite easily.  The Christmas Tree was created by cutting out 3 triangles, gluing together and then coating them in chunky white glitter.  I also sprayed with the Krylon Workable Fixatif to prevent the glitter from shaking off.  Works like a charm!  Designer papers by My Mind's Eye, Hattie Papers and Lost & Found.  Stamp sets by Gina K Designs, Wishing You Joy and Merry Little Christmas.  A little ribbon, and a little twine.  
I really love the whole flavor of this card.  Rock On!  (get it?) 
Happy Thanksgiving, travel safely and be well!


  1. I like Sharyn tree, but you did it without a die. Spectacular! I like the compliment of the blue in the background and the medal details make it another great composition, for you.

  2. Ok, I was drinking a glass of wine while making this comment. Please disregard the first line , and substitute this instead.

  5. What an awesome idea to do the wire star on top of that wonderful little sparkly tree!! Man I love how that thing-a-ma-jig works. Now I want one of those.....thanks a LOT!! Haha...I have seen them before but never really thought about it. You are so clever my dear. Super cute and very festive card. And again with the layering, your trademark.
