Stampendous playing with DYSU and precious metals!

Guess what! Stampendous team are playing again with Do You Stack Up challenge! The theme this time is Gold and Silver :). 

This month at Stampendous we are also challenging you to make quick and simple Christmas cards that can be easily produced in bulk numbers :). This challenge is just perfect for me as I always end up making my Xmas cards at the last minute... :).

So here's the card I would like to share. For my project I used this stunning Perfectly Clear stamps set Excelsis Deo. I simply love it!

I made a couple of layers with patterned paper and card stock. Then I stamped the angel onto grey cardstock with Coffee Archival and sprayed it with Silver Cosmic Shimmer Mist. I love the aged sparkly look it created.

Then I framed my image with a border sprinkled with the Champagne Crushed Glass Glitter - love love love that stuff! Top Tip - for a quick frame solution use strong double sided tape. Just sprinkle the glass glitter over it and done :).

Well, to be in keeping with my quick and simple card, I am going to keep this post quick and simple, too lol :).

Be sure to check out what my Teammies have prepared for this challenge! Playing from our Design Team are:

Hope you can join us for both challenges :) - DYSU and our own CAS Xmas! To hop over to DYSU click here and to join the challenge at Stampendous just click on the sweet kitty below :).

Back to say thank you for the heads-up on the DYSU challenge - just made my offering! Should say again, this is an absolute stunner... Was very sad to find today that in the move back from Stratford, I've mislaid (I hope only temporarily) my champagne glass glitter - was completely planning to use it - bah!!
