I've got a fun Christmas card to share with you this afternoon - it is quite clean and simple, but has lots and lots of sparkle:
Stamps: Woodware - Christmas Bubble Tree; Waltzingmouse - Twas The Night Before Christmas
Inks: Memento - Tuxedo Black; Stampin' Up! - Daffodil Delight
Dies: Die-namics - In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Melon Mambo; Martha Stewart Glitter - Yellow Barite, Tourmaline, Periodot; SU Glitter - Dazzling Diamonds; Copic Markers
I got the idea for a bubble Christmas tree from the graphic for One Layer Christmas Card Challenge - OLXCC#6 where the theme is anything goes, but with the optional twist of circles, this stamp is perfect!! The colours, bold and bright, are from CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#116 and I'm also playing along with Merry Monday - MM#151 where the team would like to see a tree. I embossed the diagonal stitched frame on the front as a frame for the tree (the dies are my new goodies). I stamped the tree in the frame and then added lots of glitter to the baubles. I added clear glitter to the tree trunk. I finished the front with a simple sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer of pink card and on the white panel I added some very pale yellow snow, a tiny tree and a Christmas greeting.
Here's a close up of all that glitter. I took this photo outside in the sunshine so that you can really see the sparkle!
I've been very busy making Christmas cards, and I've just realised that Easter is just round the corner, so I'd better get cracking on some Easter cards!! That's all for now. See you soon.
Edited to add: Lizzy has just told me about The Glory of Christmas Challenge - GCC#55 where the theme is Tannenbaum/Christmas Tree, so I'm submitting this card there too. Thanks Lizzy!
