Naked Stamping - No Coloring


The new challenge at Catch The Bug is "Naked Stamping - No Coloring"!  Glad the clarified the no coloring part!  HAHA!  I chose Snowflake Reindeer Silhouette  and made it into a shaker card (my favorite!).  I used a pre-made rectangle pop up from Queen & Co. and added silver, gold and black sequins from my stash.  I cut out a gold metallic poster board frame on my Cameo and heat embossed Christmas Wishes sentiment from Stampin' Up! with black opaque embossing powder by Zing.  The black glitter cs is from Doodlebug Designs.
