For this Christmas card, I used the Abalone technique from the current issue of the Technique Junkies. It gave me the opportunity to play with my lonely Pearl Ex containers. I have to say it was very interesting to see how the colors work together. I know this may not quite be what the Junkies had in mind, but I knew what I wanted to achieve with this stamp from Scrolls Work . And of course, this is the second card (First card is below)! The first one when all was said and done, I just looked at it and thought I did not like something. The navy background on the first was not embossed and let me tell you, what a huge difference it makes. I used a red glitter pen to the Poinsettia flowers, which you may not be able to see. There is a lot of shimmer to this card and six layers of paper! All papers are Stampin Up. I have to keep reminding myself to do layers. The camera really does not give the colors justice or show the glimmer, but it is there.
