I've really stepped out of my comfort zone today - I've made a box rather than a card, and used a couple of mixed media techniques on it!
The box is a little undecorated card one, the kind you can pick up in The Range and similar places. I painted it with dark blue acrylic paint all over inside and our, and then applied Kroma Crackle to all the outside surfaces except the flat base.
When that was dry and well-crackled (you really have to wait, don't you? I think I'm too inpatient, I like to see immediate results!) I sponged silver ink around all the edges and a little randomly over the crackled surfaces, sprinkled with silver embossing powder and heated it.
Then I decorated the lid, adding ribbon around the edge, a circle of tinsel style braid around the top, a "star" of ribbon loops centred with a large crystal snowflake and some matching gems in the corners.
I'll use this as a gift box at Christmas - it would be perfect to hold a small piece of jewellery.
