Taking of a photo of this card has been quite tough - but I think this captures the sparkle and shine. I love the sketch and immediately thought of this pretty snowflake stamp.
I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the stamps, having first established the centre of the card. Starting at the bottom of the card, I used a glue pen to fill in the snowflake outline and once the glue reached the clear stage I added glitter. I repeated this up the card using two shades of glitter on each of the full snowflakes. Once the card was dry I burnished the glitter to make sure it doesn't shed and to add shine. Here's a close up of the snowflakes. Sadly the photos don't do the card justice - the sparkle and shine is lovely! As I didn't want to hide the pretty snowflakes, I stamped the sentiment onto vellum. As I didn't emboss the sentiment it has dried to give a very soft focus effect - which I rather like. I finished off by adding this thread in coordinating colours.
Kathryn has now started her countdown to Christmas - only three full weeks of school left!!! We plan to put up our Christmas tree this weekend. Bye for now!
