Filigree card using Reflective Moment

Hello my dear crafty folks.

Hope you all are keeping well.
It's almost winter here in India. How about your place? Let me know in the comment below. Would love to hear from you. 
So as winter is starting, I am so excited about Christmas. I just love everything about Christmas-Christmas tree, Carols, Santa's, gifts, cakes(yummy), church, decorations, lights and what not! How about you ? What do you do on Christmas ? Have you started your preparations yet ? If not you can join in me today to prepare handmade cards for your family members, relatives, friends.

From this post onwards I am going to share some of the festive cards (for me it will be based on Christmas theme). You can alter it as per your requirement. So today I am going to share my first ever filigree card using Spellbinders reflective moment die set. I just love this one. It's so so beautiful. I have used this die set for the base of my card. You can click here to learn how to make a filigree card(Hinged card). So here's the sneak peek of the card.

For this card I have used Papericious "let's celebrate" patterned papers. Those who are new-Papericious is an Indian brand that manufactures gorgeous patterned papers. Now they have gone beyond that- like now they have beautiful laces, sequins, scrapbook kit etc. This collection is my first one. And I am so happy that it perfectly matched up my requirement. As I was into making Christmas themed card, lucky me, I found out it in this paper pack.

As Christmas has all that glittering things around, So I chose to use gold mirror card stock of which I am so fascinated now. I just love the effect it gives to the card. I have cut few gold panels from Spellbinders  lacey ovals(largest die) and Petite labels one (smallest die).

For the sentiment I have die cut a tag from Spellbinders fancy tags two and stamped "season's tweetings" from lawn fawn winter sparrows stamp set. Aren't they cute! I have stamped it using Studio G's Christmas green pigment ink.

Finally, I have adhered all the layers of my card one over the other using the double sided foam adhesive to give extra dimension to my card. I forgot to mention above, I have also used red satin ribbon. I have arranged it around the loops/lace of the largest oval panel that I had die cut using the gold mirror card stock. At last I have added some green coloured flat pearls on the swirls of the filigree pattern. I have also tied a double bow using purple satin ribbon. I have used Prima dotted flowers which I had won in a contest by Lulupu. I have inserted few pollens at the centre of the flower. I took three flowers and clustered them together and adhered them near the sentiment along with the bow that I had created earlier. My sentiment tag looked quite simple so I added few extras of the gold lacey panel and some off white flat pearls to give that extra weight.

Tadaa...the card is done now.
