Hi, I'm Pam and thank you for visiting my blog. I have been making cards for over 10 years and am an independent demonstrator for Creative Expressions.

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!

Oh Glitter Tree!

Good Morning All and a very Happy Thursday and a Very Happy December!

I'm still bobbing around the Caribbean but made a few quick cards to tide you over until I get back!

Unfortunately, I don't have step by step photos for this one, but it should be easy to follow.

Die cut a square of Silver Mirror card using the large Noble Pierced Square Dies.
Cut a smaller square of Coconut White card and emboss with the A4 Twinkle, Twinkle Folder.
Pick up some Flake and Glitter glue on a piece of Cut 'n Dry Foam and dab over the embossed card.
Sprinkle Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow Glitter Jewels over it.
Matt and layer onto the gold card.

Place a piece of Double Sided Adhesive onto some white card.
Die cut the Festive Collection - Christmas Tree Greeting.

Carefully peel back the protective layer from the double sided adhesive from the base up to the top of the word "Christmas".
Sprinkle Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitters on.
Peel back to the top of the next word and apply a different colour glitter.
Keep going until you've covered it all.  I've used a mix of blues and purples. 
Glue the tree onto the embossed background and add a star embellishment.
And that's all you need to do!

The good thing is that it's flat so easy to post!  It's also handy to be able to make your own glittered, embossed backgrounds!

Everything used (except for the silver card) is from Creative Expressions.

Well, that's it for this week.  I'll be back next Thursday with another card.  Many thanks for stopping by and leaving comments...always much appreciated.

Until next time, have a happy, crafty week!

That is a very very clever idea by using the different colors of glitter. I am very impressed with your card
