Cristmas Cards - Day 3 Organza Cards

Hello there friends!
Welcome to yet another post on Christmas Cards. Today I have a fun technique to share with you to bring in subtle shine to the cards and give a wonderful texture to it at the same time.

No Glitter, no texture paste, no shimmer sprays here, but the trick is to use some Organza ribbon with shimmery colors and variety in a width that can cover the entire card.
I am not sure where you get Organza strips that are about the size of a 4x6 card here, but I had got some from my brother on his travel to UK.

The cards as such are very simple. I stamped the tree from Craftyscrappers onto different card panels and blended some bright colors using both Distress as well as pigment inks. Then I placed the organza piece on top and taped the edges neatly behind the card panel.
Then I added it onto a top folding 4x6 card on matching shaded and stamped the insides with a simple Christmas sentiment from the same set.

Do let me know how you like this look guys! The subtle shine on the cards is very different from what you get using heat embossing or glitter or shimmer sprays.
