Christmas Flashback-Year 6

2004 was our first year out here in the country, and I went a very different way this year (no snowflakes)! That was the year that SU! had the metallic cards available, in Silver, Gold and Copper if memory serves. I went with the Silver for the base.

This one is very sparkly in person, but that doesn't scan well! The stars and swirls on the Night of Navy background are from a jumbo wheel (Swirling Stars) that I rolled across the top and bottom and embossed with Hologram Highlights EP. The silver edged tag has the star block from Happiest of Holidays layered on in Night of Navy. I embossed "tis the season" across the block with Silver EP and added a silver star eyelet near the corner. The tag is tied onto the card around the Night of Navy layer with Silver organdy ribbon. I did secure the tag with a dimensional near the bottom corner.

This year started a new trend where I used a set from the Holiday Mini catalog. I usually do a swap for that mini, and either the card I come up with, or an inspiration from one of the ones I receive ends up being "THE" card! Guess that is why we swap-for inspiration!
