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.
