Merry & Bright

This card did not go well as planned.  I was using the ornament die cut from a Sizzix Framelits stamp & die set.  After die cutting the ornament on paper making a template, I inked inside the negative die cut with Blueprint Sketch & Chipped Sapphire distress inks.  I made some stripes & star shapes on the ornaments with a silver gel pen. Then I stamped the  Merry & Bright sentiment from the set with Versamark ink & heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  I framed the panel with a matching blue card stock.  Then I glued that panel onto a silver card stock panel. That's where the problem came in.  I put glue on the back of that silver card panel & when I placed it on the final blue card base every place where I had glue on the back show through, and it doesn't even look silver in the picture...more like gold!!Oh Well...not everything turns out like you planned!!
