Avery Elle & Add A Little Dazzle Blog Hop


It's Add A Little Dazzle and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.  These sheets work great with our Elle-ments dies!  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Add A Little Dazzle blog for even more inspiration!  Be sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $30 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a prize from Add A Little Dazzle!  Winners will be announced on Monday, October 6th.

Here's how I added a little metallic dazzle to my card...


I loved all the shiny colors, but I was really drawn to the the gorgeous teal!  As much as I love traditional Christmas colors, I love a fresh blue/pink/red combo for Christmas cards.  So I used the Noel dies and matching stamps to create this easy-to-make card.  The dies do cut the metal sheets, but I really liked the embossed look and left them as is.  For reference, the metal sheets feel like a thick, stiffer tin foil sheet.  Look at the shine on this stuff!


I placed my embossed panel behind a window that I cut with my We R Family dies, and then I stamped a subtle background with the coordinating snowflake stamps.  Fun, right?

Thanks so much for stopping in!

Mahalo and Aloha,
