Christmas Cards with a bit of Sparkle

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my last project using the amazingly glittery Glisten Kaisercraft Collection

photo-24-11-2016-14-57-07-2 photo-24-11-2016-14-57-21-2I had a free choice to do whatever I liked this time so I decided to make two cards,one gold tones and one silver tones.

I started off with the wooden snowflakes. In  order to make them a bit sparkly I used some gold embossing powder and heat embossed them to make them ‘glisten’ photo-23-11-2016-14-00-16 photo-23-11-2016-14-05-27I then cut some squares of various papers from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad for mats and layers on my card – I distressed the edges of the papers with I threaded some Gold Metallic Hemp Cord through the holes in the snowflakes.

I used half a Gold Doily in between the layers of papers at the side.

Next I chose a sentiment from one of the papers Incandescent Foil  and matted it onto some of the amazingly sparkly Gold Glitter put it all together I wrapped the twine over the back of the layered paper and secured with double sided tape on the back and a gold bow was added.

I used a giant snowflake from the Collectables Pack, added some glue then sprinkled glitter over to make it sparkle.

Finally some silver gems were added to finish off at the top and bottom.

Thanks for popping over and do come back soon to see some more inspiration from the team.
