Winter Friends

Hi! Here is one sparkled up Christmas card I made with Sparkle N Sprinkle new Stamps set Eskimo Kisses #788. This set is also available in digital form.

I stamped these two cute fellows with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored them with Promarkers. Then I used Spellbinders Labels One die as a template and traced the shape with pencil around the image. This was cut with scissors. I also used a Sakura Glue Pen to draw the frame around the edges and covered it with Cloud Nine glitter. It appears light blue because the edges was inked before with Broken China Distress Ink.Layers behind it are die cut with Spellbinders dies From Decorative Labels One and Lacey Circles Large sets out of Sticker Paper. One is covered with Cobalt Glaze and other with Collegiate Garnet  glitters.

I also added some sparkle to the background paper with Sakura Glue Pen. I traced the lines of the doily on the paper and added Cloud Nine glitter on top.

To make the flower I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape and die cutted out the poinsettia and holly leaves with Creative Expressions Classic Poinsettia and Holly Sprays dies. Flowers are covered with Gypsy Red and leaves with Lator Gator glitters. In center of poinsettia is added a White 'pearl' with Nuvo Crystal Drops.Same thing is used to make the berries on the leaves. I just covered the 'pearl', while it was still wet, with Gypsy Red glitter.

 I love, love, love to use glittered paper as matting layer. For that I adhered a 1/4" Double Sided Tear-ific Tape to the edges of the cardstock and cover the tape with suitable glitter. This time I used Cobalt Glaze.

There is still time to participate in this month Sparkle N Sprinkle challenge. You can win some lovely digis of your choice.
