Metallic Be Merry card - Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth Release

Good morning! Popping in to share another card I created with the BRAND NEW Festive and Fun Peace on Earth release from Simon Says Stamp - love all the fun mix of holiday and winter elements in this release! While the first card I shared was all about the rainbows - this card is all silver and gold and an elegant finish! Gold heat embossing on silver cardstock? Um, yes please!

I discovered if you are very careful, you can heat emboss on the new Matte Silver Mirror cardstock that was part of this release. I used the Star to Star background cling stamp. The main caution is to keep the heat tool moving so you don't melt the cardstock, and only *just* melt the embossing powder - nothing more. Such an elegant and pretty effect though, don't you think?

I trimmed the panel down, and mounted with foam on an Ivory cardbase - I thought it looked a little fancier than a white cardbase for some reason, and complimented all the sparkle better.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from the new XL Christmas Greetings stamp set in gold only on Black cardstock, and trimmed it down to a rectangle. I die cut a new Aurora Snowflake from gold glitter cardstock, and mounted the sentiment with the snowflake tucked behind it on that front panel.

Final finishing touch was a little row of Pinkfresh Metallic Gold Pearls on each side of the sentiment!
