Christmas Joy with Sparkle

Hello,

Karen here with the second of my projects using the Sparkle collection and this one couldn’t be more sparkly.  I have used a photo of my dog Kiera who really loves Christmas.  She adores to open presents and if you don’t watch her she will open them all and not just hers!

I started with a sheet of very glittery Blush Glitter Cardstock, which I gutted a 1.5 inch frame.  To this I added a piece of Coconut Weave Cardstock, trimmed to slightly larger than 10.5 ins square.

I then added strips of printed tape between the stripes of glitter on a piece of Vavacity paper which I then cut to 10.5 ins square.

I used a piece of  Blush Glitter Cardstock, measuring 8ins x 6ins as the base of my photo mat. I added a piece of Coconut Weave Cardstock – 7.5 x 5.5 and to the top of this I added a piece of Auroral cut to slightly smaller than 7.5 x 5.5.  I used mounting foam pads to attach the white card to the sparkle card and my photo to the Auroral paper.  I used more mounting foam pads to attach the whole stack to my page making sure that I had room at both edges to tuck elements underneath.

Next I added a small doily (from my own supplies) at the bottom left corner and the bottom right edge. I arranged flowers cut from Glint and flower stickers from the Sticker Pad to each side of my photograph, tucking some under each of the layers.

I cut one of the scalloped borders from the 6.5 x 6.5 pad in two and placed at the bottom left and top right of my photo stack.

I painted two of the trees from the flourish pack rose gold and added them to the bottom right of my page along with three trees from the Collectables.

I used stickers, also from the Sticker Pad as my title and at the top right of my photo along with three Champange rhinestones either side of the sticker.

The final touch was to cut the ‘Spreading Christmas Cheer’ sticker (from the sticker sheet) into three and back with a piece of Illuminate paper and to add to the top of my page.

So there we have my second project using this gorgeous range and I have almost finished my third which I can’t wait to show you!
