A Heavy Metal Christmas!

It’s not the remix of an old Christmas carol but the cardmaking version of Heavy Metal! Day 22 of Martin’s Mayhem #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge was a Contemporary Christmas and yes, again I was scratching my head. I looked at the small print (always check the small print, they say!) in the image below. No fuddy duddy stuff, think about what’s ‘in’. What better way to go than an ‘In-Colour’ because they are definitely ‘in’!

I wanted quite a modern look with sleek lines. I did some investigation into what was trending on the interior design realm. Some metallics seem to be out there and our foil range with Cinnamon Cider was going to work so well for this challenge.


I added 4 equal sized strips of Gold, Silver, Brass and Champagne foil on an Early Espresso cardstock panel. Then I layered this on the Cinnamon Cider card base. A strip of Cinnamon Cider Velveteen was attached on one side which creates a focal point for the ornament.

Hope you have enjoyed my contemporary twist on Christmas. Drop by tomorrow for more cardmaking inspiration.
