Time to Sparkle!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Tuesday!

There's nothing like a bit of glitter to get you in the mood for Christmas and this weeks card has plenty of that!

So, let's get started with it.....

Cut a piece of card to size and cover it with Double Sided Adhesive.  Using a spoon, sprinkle Vintage Violet and Western Blue Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter over the top.  Apply one colour at a time and press the glitter down to make sure it stays in place.

Apply Flake and Glitter Glue to the Mosaic Bauble Stamp and stamp onto the glittered card.  Apply Cosmic Shimmer Silver Moon Gilding Flakes.

Trim to size then matt and layer onto Coconut White Card.
Cut a matt from white card, sick some of the Double Sided Adhesive around the edges and sprinkle the same colour glitters as before.  Matt and layer.

Put double sided tape around all 4 edges of a piece of Coconut White Card.  Apply the glitters as before.

Cut another piece of Coconut White and emboss using the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities Dainty Dots A4 Folder.

Cut a length of White Seam Binding, cover with Flake and Glitter Glue and apply the same colour glitters.

Attach to the embossed piece of card them matt and layer onto the piece with the glittered edges.

Using the sentiment from the A5 Winter Greetings set of stamps, apply Flake and Glitter Glue and stamp onto a piece of Coconut White Card.  Sprinkle the glitters as before.
Die cut the sentiment with the Spellbinders Classic Circle Dies.

Cover another piece of card with Double Sided Adhesive and die cut a Scalloped Circle.  Cover with the glitters then matt and layer the sentiment.

Attach the Bauble and Sentiment with 3d foam pads.

And that's the finished card!

It's difficult to explain the difference between the Polished Silk Glitters compared to other glitter, you really have to see it and feel it!  It is so smooth that you can stamp on it and even stamp with the glue without the glitter coming off. 

I'll be using it at Ally Pally this weekend in some demo's so I hope you'll stop by to have a look.

Well, that's it for now.  Have a great week and hope to see some of you this weekend.  Many thanks for stopping by.
