I run workshops for a local craft shop and if anyone would like details of the them please e-mail me at stephen.smith870@ntlworld.com I love to scrapbook but my all time favourite thing is to get messy with ink!

Glittery Christmas!

Good Morning All and a Very Happy Tuesday.

As promised last week, I'm back with another idea for Christmas.  This is the one time of the year when I really feel that I can get my glitters out and "go to town!"

All of the products I've used are from Creative Expressions.

So, without further ado, let's get started....

Apply Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter Glue to the Tree from the Christmas Swirl A5 Stamp Set.
Stamp onto Coconut White Card.  Using one colour at a time, apply Cosmic Shimmer Golden Sand, Sahara Gold and Pale Bronze Polished Silk Glitters.  Trim to size.

Emboss a piece of Coconut White Card with the A4 Sue Wilson Snowflake Lattice Folder.  Matt and layer onto Foundations Vintage Gold Card.  Matt and layer a strip of the embossed card.

Stick the strip onto the side of the card with 3d foam pads.
Matt and layer the tree and attach to the card with pads.

Apply Flake and Glitter Glue to the sentiment and glitter as with the tree.  Cut it out with Spellbinders Lacey Ovals Dies.
Die cut the Festive Collection Holly Sprays from Coconut White Card.  Glue into position.
Cut a piece of Gold Tulle and scrunch it in the centre.  Use a glue dot to attach to the card.
Add the sentiment with 3d foam pads.

And there's the finished card!

It's ideal to make if you need a batch of quick yet effective looking cards.

Well, that's it for this week.  I hope you like the card.

Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments, they're much appreciated!

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!
