All that glitters is...Christmas!


Welcome, friends!  I'm here with a monochromatic and sparkly Christmas card--using fabulous products from Paper Sweeties! :)  Come and take a peek at the entire card and then I'll share how I created it...


The first focus was on creating my background panel.  I decided to add a lot of texture by first dry embossing the cardstock and then heat embossing gold over that. The embossing folder is by Sizzix and the powder is by Sweet Stamps.  This was layered on to a glitter paper mat.  The glitter paper is by Recollections.


I then turned to decorating the panel.  I added some banners using the same Recollections glitter paper and then a line of lace from my stash.  I embossed some bows from the NEW Holly Days set from Paper Sweeties (release party going on NOW--new products available on the 15th!) and then die cut them out with the NEW Holly Days Sweet Cuts.  I added some copper Stickles to the centers and then layered them onto some glitter paper banners and lace.


I next stamped and embossed the snowman from the NEW Holly Days set and die cut it using the NEW Holly Days Sweet Cuts.  I cut an extra snowman out of the same glitter paper to use as a shadow for my glittery guy.  A bit of copper Stickles accenting finished him off and he was put onto the card.


The last step was to add the sentiment.  This one is from the NEW Happy Holidays set from Paper Sweeties and was embossed in gold.  It was punched into a banner and added to more glitter paper as a mat.  It was tucked under my snowman.


That's all for me today, friends!  Come and play along with me at the fabulous challenges I'm entering--the list is at the end of this post.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  HUGS and happy stamping, all!
