Merry ‘N Bright…

Here’s a technique found on Pinterest and thought it would look pretty on Brushed Silver cardstock.  Other than the “fussy cutting” this would be an easy card to mass produce with dramatic results.  Here’s the card…


Now the card on Pinterest was done on darker cardstock and was really dramatic so you might want to try that, but this Brushed Silver is really pretty in person and hard to catch with a camera.  Are you interested in trying this?  Here’s the Stuff ‘N Digits for you…


  • Paper:  Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Brushed Silver cardstock
  • Ink:  Memento Black, VersaMark and Blendability Pens Old Olive and Smoky Slate
  • Stamps:  Ornamental Pine and Good Greetings (sentiment) and Gorgeous Grunge (snow)
  • Tools ‘N Embellishments:  1″ Sheer Cherry Cobbler Ribbon, All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments, White Embossing Powder, Linen Thread


  • The Basic Black base cardstock is cut 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″
  • The Cherry Cobbler layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″
  • The Brushed Silver layer is 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • With VersaMark stamp the Pine Bough and the “snow” and coat with White Embossing Powder then heat
  • With Blendability Pens color 2/3 of the pine needles leaving the ends white.  Use all three Old Olive pens with darker color to center.  Use Smoky Slate to color branch.
  • Stamp pine cone twice on Brushed Silver with VersaMark and coat with White Embossing Powder, then heat and “fussy cut”
  • Attach Cherry Cobbler layer to card front.
  • Attach Cherry Cobbler Ribbon to top of Brushed Silver layer, tie snowflake with Linen Thread
  • Attach Brushed Silver layer to Cherry Cobbler layer.
  • Pine cones are attached with dimensionals.
  • Add your choice of sentiment to front with Memento Black ink.

Give this card a try…you will be really happy with the results.  Hope you have found a little inspiration from my post today.

Here’s your “B-ism” for the day…”A little glue and glitter and you can conquer the world!”

  2. Love this look. I tried this on the craft card stock and it is stunning. I ruined it with the ornament though so I chalked it up to an experiment. So glad to see it on a finished card. Back to the drawing board for me. Beautiful card
