A Very Sparkly Christmas

Hello Friends! Today's card is VERY sparkly! You know how I love my glitter.  For this card, I used glitter paper and I love how it turned out. No mess, just lots and lots of shine! This is another card I made at one of Caryl's stamp camps.

I tried 50 million different ways to capture the sparkle on this card...nothing worked. I think it's time for a light box. Anywho...there it is! Lots of sparkle from that glitter paper and the rhinestones, too. The "Merry" was die cut and I used the negative to create the focal. The blue envelope you see there was made using the envelope punch that thing! And, if you purchase one be sure to check out the videos on YouTube that show you different things to do with it. It's not just for envelopes!

That's all I have for today. Thanks for dropping by. See you tomorrow.

I love the sparkle and shine on your card, Barb! The negative die cut is spectacular atop the glitter paper. Great design details - the banners and ribbon are lovely.

This is just gorgeous, Barb. I can see that it is very, very sparkly. LOVE it. The blues are very soothing and the glitter paper pops. I like the rhinestones too. The bit of sparkle on the envelope is a neat touch. Is that a sparkly thin ribbon, too? Amazing!
