Less is More - week #243 - recipe

 This week we have a recipe challenge at Less is More, to use something shiny.  I've opted to make a few Christmas cards with a bit of shine.  First up is a completely die cut card.  I've cut a blue panel with a Simon Says Stamp stitched rectangle.  The Lawn Fawn stitched snowflakes are cut from glitter paper and I've also added some shiny sequins.  The words are Tim Holtz die cuts.
 My next card uses the same blue, with an old favourite Memory Box ornament die.  The top layer is cut from silver mirri card and I added some shiny silver cord behind it.  The sentiment is heat embossed with WOW Blueberry.
And my favourite of the three has a shiny lamp post, I've inked the background with a halo of Mustard Seed Distress Ink along with Weathered Wood and Stormy Sky.  There's some orange Stickles inside the lamp for more shininess.  The bench and lamp post are Penny Black and the sentiments are Stampin' Up Endless Wishes.
