Silver and Gold Christmas Greeting Cards

Hello there friends and crafty peeps! Ginny here to share a set of Christmas greeting cards created with the Christmas Words Tree chippie set. I thought it would be fun to make one design two ways. One in silver and one in gold.
My silver card has a shabby chic inspiration with soft colors and subtle details.
 The large chipboard sentiment takes center stage but finished in white it is not contrasting with the background.

 The flower arrangement is filled in with deco stars and snowflakes.
Coordinating ribbon with a vintage button and silver charms finish off this card perfectly.
For card 2 I'm going for the gold. The same sentiment chippie but this time finished with a gold star and accented with matching gold accents.
As gold inspires a warmer color scheme I chose plaids and reds to coordinate.
 More snowflakes and stars for the flowers.
Matching trim and vintage button with key charms and this card is dressed to impress.
I selected the Christmas Words Tree chippies then wiped them down to prepare them for finishing. A double layer of flat white acrylic paint is topped with sparkly glitter embossing powder then heat set for a shiny finish. Last but not least a metallic finish for the stars.

Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
