JustRite Friday Challenge 056: Shaped Holiday Card or Tag

With 116-degree record-setting heat today in the desert, I chose white & silver for my Christmas card for the returning JustRite Friday Challenge. YAY!!! I'm very happy with the result and almost felt cool while working on it! Regardless, it's wonderful to have another holiday card for my stash.
This one features JustRite's Vintage Christmas ornaments stamped on pearl vellum, embossed in silver and framed using Spellbinders' Labels Sixteen. My frame is cut from Papertrey Ink's Shimmer CS, stamped with a Vintage Christmas border, silver embossed and mounted with foam dots to a silver CS layer die cut from Label Twenty-One's largest die. I traced that same die onto Shimmer CS and a folded grey card from my stash, cut around both by hand and mounted the main image with foam dots.
I used JustRite's 25-pt. Times New Roman alphabet for my sentiment, die cut with a Spellbinders' Grommet Tag.  Accents include narrow silver ribbon from my stash tied into a bow on the left to secure my sentiment tag and Recollections rhinestones.
I appreciate your stopping by today and hope you're keeping cool wherever you are!!!
