Merry Christmas for JUGS #219

The challenge at Just Us Girls this week is the Faux Silk Technique.  This is my first time trying this technique and I really like it.  I am having so much fun trying different challenges and techniques.
I stamped the snowflake from SU Winter Post in Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on some glittered tissue paper, glued it to Whisper White CS and then cut it out with Spellbinders Label Seventeen. I hand cut the black mat. The Faux Silk showed up really nice before I die-cut it.  You can see it better in real life.  The green dot DSP is by Simple Stories. The card base is SU Cherry Cobbler, the white is SU Whisper White and the mats are SU Basic Black.  The sentiment is from SU More Merry Messages, stamped in Mememto Tuxedo Black and cut with MFT Fishtail Flags Stax and Layers.  The Spellbinders Poinsettia is cut from Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke. I added a large rhinestone to the center of the poinsettia and smaller ones to the centers of the snowflakes.
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
