CHRISTMAS with optional twist of shimmer/glitter
I think Christmas cards and glitter go together like coffee and cake, so I was more than happy to create for this one. And I can see that many of you have felt the same way as the Gallery is packed with glittery goodness!!
We are very lucky to have Uniko as the Sponsor of this challenge and they will give a gift voucher to a randomly picked 'twister'. Lucky them!!
I couldn't wait to get out my glitter paper for this one and felt that some die-cutting was in order:
I realised that I had a whole lot of small pieces of glitter paper, so decided to cut them into strips and adhere them to a scrap piece of white CS. This way I could die-cut the tree design without the strips coming apart. I used a wavy-stitched die to cut a panel of white CS and stamped the sentiment in grey. A piece of silver glitter paper was adhered to the card front, with the white panel glued over-top. All I had to do then was pop the tree's up on foam tape and add some sequins.
The pink, blue and green glitter paper is from DCWV 'Glitzy Pastels Stack'. The silver glitter paper is from American Crafts. The tree die is from Memory Box 'Pine Trio' and unfortunately I don't know where the stitched hill die is from. The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson 'Mistletoe and Holly' and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.
I'm going to link this card to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where their theme is 'O Christmas Tree'.
Will also link to the Uniko Studio November Challenge where their theme is:
