Merry Chistmas with Sketched Holiday and Glitter
Linda here with a little Christmas Cheer wishing you a Merry Chistmas with Sketched Holiday and Glitter.
For this project I was inspired by the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. This weeks challenge was to use glitter. Since I needed to make a blog post and I wanted to submit a card for this challenge I decided to do a two in one.
In the video I used Crimson and Moss Tattered Angels Glimmer mist. A page of Canvas Corp Brands ivory Glitter paper was used as my card topper. Die cutting the tree from Sizzix as well as the Top Note from Stampin Up I knew I had the foundation to get my card going.
Placing the card topper in a spray box I then sprayed with Moss Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels. While I had the green out I placed the tree in the box and sprayed it the same color. Next placed the Top Note piece in the box and sprayed with Crimson Glimmer Mist. These were set aside to dry.
On a piece of the card topper scrap, stamped and heat embossed Merry Christmas, using the Brutus Monroe Embossing Ink. Trimmed down and rounded the corners. Used Zig two way glue around the edges and dipped into green glitter.
Picking up the tree I then traced around the poinsettias with the glue pen and then sprinkled the green glitter on top. Next I used Martha Stewart tiny glass beads in red to fill the centers of the flowers.
A star was punched out of scrap paper, then painted with Glam from Tattered Angels and sprinkled with gold glitter.
Assembled the layers putting pop dots under the tree and sentiment.
It was so much to make these that I pulled a few other colors of Glimmer Mists from Tattered Angels and made two more cards that are not in the video but basically done the same way as the red and green card.
There are so many options with this Sketched Holiday stamp. You can stamp it as a background or the focal point. Have fun with this stamp set. I also hope that you see ho fun the glimmer mists are to use as well.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
