Christmas & Sparkle


 
There are two very exciting challenges going on this week over at FCCB and BBTB2, and because I am a member of both of the DT's, I decided I wanted to combine them and create one card because they both relate to each other - in a way :)
FCCB's challenge is Sparkle and Bling while BBTB2's challenge is all about Christmas Cards.  I can't help but think of sparkle and Christmas at the same time!  So that is why I thought this card was so perfect for both challenges!
I also wanted to use the Art Philosophy Overlay feature and when I saw the snowflakes, I knew that was exactly what I wanted to encorporate on my card.  I have this awesome glitter/sparkle paper from DCWV Twinkle stack and it cut like butter!  I was actually shocked because the cut is so intricate, but I slowed the speed down on my Cricut, and it cut beautifully.  I also cut my green and pink glitter snowflakes from Art Philosophy, one at 2" and one at 1 1/2".  My sentiment is from a Hero Arts Christmas stamp set.  I used some foam tape to pop up the silver snowflake overlay and my sentiment strip is tacked down on my green ribbon with some tape runner and glue dots.  I used my Zig 2 way pen for the colored snowflakes.  I LOVE these colors together for Christmas and was very excited with how this card turned out!  So you don't have to combine a card like I did, but I hope that you will join both of the challenges going on this week at these two awesome challenge blogs!  I am going to link this card up over at Paper Playtime for their Anything Goes Challenge as well.
Thanks for checkin' in!!!

  2. So sparkly and beautiful! I am completely into anything glittery (there has had to be some interventions for too much stickle use in the past, lol!) and this card just makes me happy to look at it! Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

  14. This is so beautiful! Did you make a video of this? I would love to know how you made it! Is the DCWV paper pad called Twinkle stack or Twinkle Glint? Trying to make it! Thank you so much!

    1. Sheree, thanks so much for your comment! I didn't make a video for this one, sorry! But the paper is from the Twinkle Glints by DCWV, and I'm pretty sure I got it at JoAnn's. The pink and green glitter paper is from a ColorBok pack I picked up from Wal-Mart. Good Luck with your card!!!
