Dream Scheme Color Challenge

I know it comes around this time every year, but I still can't believe it is December 1!  There are still some cards to be made, so for today's color challenge,  I've made a holiday card in non-traditional colors. I hope you like it.

Here's what you will need:
Stencils:  Let it Snow (LG717) and
Ice Skates (LL3016)
Metallic Silver Embossing Paste (DSP)
Silver Metal  (AC14)
Clear Glitter
Palette Knife (DPK)
Removable Tape  (RMT)

to make this card:
Position the Let it Snow stencil on card stock; tape each edge; and paste emboss with Metallic Silver Embossing paste.  Carefully remove the stencil and while the paste is still wet, sprinkle clear glitter over the surface and tap off the excess.  While the paste is drying, carefully wash the stencil and palette knife.

Dry emboss the ice skates stencil on the silver metal by hand or with a personal die cutting machine.  Carefully remove the stencil.  To help retain a sharp image, spread Mercart's Filling Paste or Dreamweaver's  matte white embossing paste over the back of the embossed metal.  Mat and layer each piece as desired and you're done.  Another card ready to mail.

Don't forget to visit the other Designer's blogs to see their take on the turquoise and silver colorway challenge.  And while you're at the Dreamweaver blog, DREAM it UP!, let us see your project by linking it using Mr. Linky.  We love to see all the great work that's out there. 

See you next week.

Happy Holiday Crafting,
