Just Add Ink 280

Just Add Ink's challenge this week is perfect for those of us thinking about Christmas already. This is theme week and it's "Just Add Glimmer." I've been experimenting with my one and only purchase (so far) from the holiday catalogue, Embellished Ornaments and co-ordinating Delicate Ornament dies. Just perfect for a bit of glimmer and glitz. Even though they are things I don't usually use, they're just right for Christmas cards...

Unfortunately, I could not get the silver embossing to really look silver. It kept picking up the light and looking gold. So, just for the record, the sentiment is embossed in SILVER not gold!

Card: Night of Navy, Whisper White, silver glimmer paper (Bella)
Stamps: Embellished Ornaments
Ink: Night of Navy, versamark
Other: Delicate Embellishments dies, silver embossing powder, black pen


  1. Beautiful CAS style card - I really like they way you have used the Glimmer paper to highlight the one bauble. Chantell JAI

  2. Jan, this is such a striking, beautiful, colour combination for Christmas. Love the glimmery bauble, and the (obviously!) silver-embossed sentiment. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

  3. LOVE this!!! A gorgeous card Jan. The navy blue and silver is such a beautiful and elegant colour combination for Christmas. Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous card and for playing along to Just Add Ink this week. xo

  4. Jan love the impact of your glittered ornament overlaying the intense Night of Navy one. Beautiful classic design! Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  5. Beautiful!! I love silver against dark blue, its so elegant. These are fantastic dies and stamps and totally got me thinking about designs for my Xmas cards. This is so perfect for the Just Add Ink challenge and I'm always happy when you play along. We have been inundated with rain this week for the first time really all year. I hope it stops by Monday for the school holidays.........
