Sparkly Seasons Greetings

Happy Saturday!  Well, I did get a chance to play, and you might say that the weather here inspired this card!  We ended up with 7″ of snow and it is now -12 Celsius and windy out there!


To make the base I used some retired CTMH double sided sticker paper on white cardstock.  I then punched out a ton of snowflakes on sticker backing paper, if you want to do this technique always save this stuff!  I then layered on the flakes in a random pattern, once I was happy I used the backing sheet and brayer to make sure that everything was firmly in place.  I then added my first layer of glitter, the darkest colour and burnished.  To do the snowflakes I used very fine tipped tweezers to lift them.  I then added the next colour, burnished and repeated until done with the lightest colour.  I stenciled a snowflake onto the tag and embossed the sentiment.

Paper: CTMH  Ink:CTMH, Versamark  Stamp: Penny Black  Other: Glitter Ritz glitter, Dollar store glitter, satin ribbon, snowflake punches, glittery ep.

We are going to put up the Christmas tree this afternoon, once that is done I may play a little bit more!  Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!
