Jingle Belles has a challenge of using a recyled item on your card. I took a piece of clear plastic from a Sizzix package and trimmed it a little smaller than an A2 sized card. Next I ran it through an embossing folder with a holly and berries pattern. Then I used one of my new acohol inks (in Citrus) and applied color to the recycled embossed plastic. I applied it with a piece of white felt. Last I went over it lightly with some Tim Holtz metallic mixative in gold (again using white felt).
I mounted the piece on embossed gold metallic gold cardstock. I used gold staples to attach it securely. The sentiment diecut is by Momento and I adhered it to the center of the card. I also used some round gold metallic accents in the top right and bottom left corner. The hardest thing about this card was trying to get a photo which showed the plastic details well. :) It is really pretty in person but was hard to photograph showing it in a good way. You will just have to "trust me." Wink. I'm linking this one up at:
