I used Love and Kisses #676  digi version DIGI676 on my card. Image is colored with Promarkers.
The black decorative strips on both sides of the image is punched with Martha Stewart Flower box punch. I hided most of the border behind the image layer

 I added some Cloud Nine Glitter to the girl dress and shoes.

Sentiment is also from digital set. I used single clear heart rhinestone as the embellishment. It was colored with red marker.

Matting layers are cut/punched from white cardstock. I colored the edges with black marker. Edges of the rectangular layer are covered with 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and punched edge is covered with  Brushable Glue. Black Suede Glitter was added to both of them.

Sparkling Christmas wishes

Hello my friends! It's only eleven days to Christmas. Probably you are well prepared and finished all your Christmas cards. But if you need to make few more, I have a simple card ideas for you. They look much more time consuming then they actually are.

Here's the first card. I placed several branches from the Toyland Bear #674  set to the front panel and rotated them as needed to fill left side diagonally.

I inked entire panel with Versamark ink and covered it with Stickum Powder. After heating it with heat tool I immediately added Sparkling Snow glitter on top.

The pine braches look so nice and sparkly with coat of glitter.

I kept the Poinsettia clean to let the background shine. Some branches was fussy cut and tucked behind the flower.

I changed the placement of the words in the sentiment and printed it out to the White CS. The sentiment layer is adhered behind the flower and fussy cut branches.

My second card is basically the same but the sentiment is printed to the front panel.

On both cards, main panels are matted with red layers. Their edges are covered with 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and Cherry Sparkle Sparkle N Soft.

The front panel on this card looks much more frosted. It's because I used two layers of  Stickum Powder and Sparkling Snow glitter.

I hope you got few ideas for your Christmas card. Full directions of my first card is in the Sparkle N Sprinkle Gallery.

Materials used:
Stamp Credits: Toyland Bear #674  digi version DIGI674
Embossing Powders: Stickum Powder (EP300)
Glitters: Sparkling Snow (G1003)
Flocking: Cherry Sparkle (SS100)
Dies: Creative Exprsssions (Classic Poinsettias); Memorybox (Elegant Scrollwork);
Coloring Medium:  Promarkers
Embellishments: Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh
Cardstock: White, Red;

Thank you for the visit!

Last month the winner came from April's blog.  Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize winner this month?

I used Toyland Bear #674  digi version DIGI674 on my card. It's perfect stamp set for Christmas.

I have seen fantastic 3D cards in the internet. I made one by memory. My memory failed. These cards are made slightly different. Originally the bottom part should be all in one piece. But my verion works as well :)

Images are colored with Promarkers. I used Distressed Embossing Powder Technique to distress the circle and all the pattern papers. I added Sparkle EP and Goldenrod Glitter to the toys behind the Teddy. Christmas card needs some sparkle.

Snowflakes are covered with SNS Brushable Glue and Sparkling Snow glitter.

On following image you can see how nice the ball is with added sparkle and shine. The berries on top of the branches are covered with Dimensional Glue and nothing else. Then it dries it will turn clear and shiny.

There wasn't enough bling so I added some Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh to the card. It's adhered with 1/4" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape and rest of the revealed tape is covered with  Goldenrod G.

Full instructions of how to make this card is on the SNS Gallery.
