Silver and blue...

As I may have mentioned before, I love mirror card stock.  I also love Glitter Ritz and easel cards.   Sooo! Why not put them all together for this winter card?


A very easy card to create with the right dies from Memory Box.  I utilized all the negative pieces that popped from the die and created a mosaic strip at the bottom of the card for the easel to stand against. Once the negative pieces were in place, I dusted the strip with Glitter Ritz and rubbed it in.   I also used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background beneath the dies.  The corners were created using a fancy corner punch and glued into place.

That's it for today!  Feel free to comment or ask questions!

Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!

What a great idea of using the two die cuts like that, DD, and for using the left over pieces in a mosaic! I imagine this is one beautiful diamond in person! ((hugs))
