Dare To Be Sassy Thursday - Christmas Card With Un-Traditional Colors!

It's Thursday and time for another Sassy Thursday challenge at SSD.  This week is all about making a Christmas card using un-traditional colors.  You may use any image of your choice, but if you have an image from SSD, we would love to see it.  There are quite a few gorgeous new releases this month for Christmas, just pop over to Lindsay's Store to check them out, you won't be disappointed!

This is one of the new releases, and she's called "Reindeer Games".  Quite sexy and sassy!  I used some background paper, I made with ornaments and snowflake stamps.  I stamped them with silve ink, and then used silver embossing powder.  The swirls are a Flocked Deco Border, a great find at Wal-Mart!  The flowers are made with card stock, that I spent time crumbling up, so that I could separate the layers, and it makes the card stock soft and kind of fluffy looking.  You cut out 3 of the smallest circles from Spellbinder dies, and you end up with 6 layers.  I saw this technique somewhere on the internet.  The holly leaves were cut using a Cricut cartridge.  I used silver stickles on the bells, and liquid applique on the shoes and shorts.  I colored the applique on the shoes with a black copic pen.
