Subway Art Christmas Card and Happy Thanksgiving!

At 613 Ave Create the theme is Subway Art - and what better stamp to use than STAMPlorations for that?  I made Christmas card, using the Vignette: Christmas Block, altough STAMPlorations has quite a few subway art stamps, including a beautiful set in the latest release.

I first stamped the sentiment onto a silver metallic paper and heat embossed it. I then dropped alcohol inks on it. I popped up this panel onto another silver metallic paper, using thin foam tape. The background I used the same stamp and stamped it repetitively onto white card stock, although it looks grey in the picture - not sure why....

Here are some more photos with different angles - its kind of tricky to photograph, because of the reflection. 

I am also linking my card with Stempelkueche - Untypische Weihnachtskarte = atypical Christmas Card
and with Uniko Studio - Anything goes and a sketch
Less is More - anything Christmassy, although this is not really a CAS card....
 Simon Says challenge - Anything Goes
Time Out challenge - embossing with the optional twist of sparkle (heat embossed my sentiment)


And let me not forget this - HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you. I am grateful that you choose to support my blog with all your wonderful comments - they keep me going and brighten my day!

By the way - there is a Black Friday sale going on at STAMPlorations:

You may want to take advantage of it!

Total außergewöhnlich und total Klasse, Cornelia! Gewagte Farbkombi, die aber fantastisch funktioniert. Wer sagt denn, dass Weihnachtskarten immer traditionell sein müssen :)
