A Little Christmas Sparkle. . . . . . . . .

Good morning lovely blogging buddies. Hope you are all well?

Its a short and sweet visit today I'm afraid as working full time this week so not much free time.

Now, I discovered a few Christmas cards that I hadn't popped on the blog so I hope you don't mind a bit of festive sparkle in April lol!!! These are ones I made and sent last year rather than advance prep for this year........I'm not that organised lol!

White card
Holographic card
White funky foam
SB 2013 Snowflake Pendant die
Presscut Square dies
A circle die
Docrafts A4  Snowflake embossing folder
Holographic glitter
Iridescent glitter
CE sentiment

I cut the the snowflake out of white funky foam a couple of times and glued them together to give it depth, rather than try and foam pad one cut from card. I covered the top in glue and dunked in the glitter.
I think you can pick up some of the sparkle from the photos.

Flying visit, as I said. I promise I will catch up with blog visits on my next day off.

Take care all and be good.

  2. Morning Ang,
    Lovely card.

  3. Good morning Ang don't work too hard save some energy for relaxing. I know it is supposed to be turning colder this week but I hope not cold enough for sparkle! Do like your funky foam idea though. Bye for now Jackie xx

  4. Lots of sparkle on this card Ang. I must really get started on my Christmas makes. Love the daffodils all we have to look forward to is shorter days and cold. It has forgotten how to rain in our little end of Tassie and the garden is soo depressed just adds to my gloom. Ah well as you know there is spring at the other end of winter.

  5. I've never used funky foam but its a great way of getting dimension on our cards. Love this, Ang.
