A Blue, Blue Christmas

OK, who's doing an Elvis impression right now?

For this card I masked off the edges of the card (and yes, I know I missed a tiny sliver on the top right corner, but decided trying to remove the ink would do more harm than good). Then I blended a light blue Cosmic Shimmer blending ink all over, keeping it as light as possible in the middle, and a darker blue distress ink around the edges.

Then I used black Versafine ink to stamp the large wreath to one side of the card, with the masking still in place.
After removing the masking, I dotted a Quickie glue pen lightly and randomly over the blue areas and once dry, pressed cold-foiling foil over the glued dots and rubbed to transfer the foil onto the card.

I made a tag with a stamped sentiment on it and attached it with a snowflake brad.

I am sharing this with

Beautiful, I love masking but always get a bit of ink in the wrong place. I wouldn't have noticed this if you hadn't said. Love the wreath stamp. Thanks for joining in at 52CCT

What a wonderful Christmas card. Your ink blending is wonderful. Me and my inks are not on speaking terms at the moment. Thanks for playing along with us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

I like how you did the background to look like pieces of the tree branch are flying around. And like a previous comment, I don't think I would have noticed that extra little bit of blue if you hadn't mentioned it!
