House of Cards Inspiration Challenge

The House of Cards has a great challenge up right now with a beautiful inspiration pic that so clean & sparkly!  And you just KNOW, I love me some sparkle!  ;)  I was so inspired I made two cards! 

The first one is very CAS but I felt it was missing something.  I used a die to embossed the cardstock then stamped the snowflake garland & heat embossed it.  I liked it but........

Thought about Susan's Rule of Three and decided that I would add some embossed strips of foil tape.  It anchored the snowflake garland & gave some extra shine to the card.  Now I LOVE this! :)

Supplies for 'Tis the Season:
SU! Cardstock: Basic Grey & Whisper White
SU! Ink: Pacific Point, Versamark
Stamps: Papertray Ink Confetti Garland BordersThink Big Favorites #8 Mini Stamp Sets
Accessories: Taylored Expressions Tiny Twinkles, Foil Tape, Big Shot, Polka Dots Embossing Folder, Stampendous Stardust Embossing Powder, Papertrey Ink Garland Border Dies

Have a fab day!
