Glitz and Sparkle

There's a new challenge at Christmas at Sweet Stampin'. Now, as some know, I like glitter and sparkle and was a crow in a former life. You all know how crows love shiny things, right? Well, put on your sunglasses cause I really loved the challenge this month of GLITZ AND SPARKLE.

I used teal metallic paper, red metallic paper and gold metallic paper along with teal and white glitter papers. I really loved using all this sparkle and glitter. Oh and I used some white chunky embossing powder for snow. My best friend, Lillian, sent me the white and gold glitter deer and I added additional glitter to their antlers. The only thing not glitter on this card is the background paper.

My picture isn't the best showing my image because of all the glitter and sparkle.  Her hair below looks washed out but is actually a nice golden blonde. You can see it better in the picture below this picture.

I used this awesome image from Time 4 Tea and I used Stickles Glitter named "Candy Cane" that has red and gold mixed together for her dress and the solid teal color Stickles glitter for her scarf. I used white flocking for her ear muffs and trim on the bottom of her dress.

I used red glitter embossing powder on my poinsettia leaves and a white brad holds them together and I added some clear glitter to the brad for sparkle. You can't see them in these small pictures, but I used two tree die cuts, one in metallic teal paper and one in fine glitter teal paper.

This is super fine glitter teal paper for my holly die cut that I glued on white paper and then fussy cut around them so that they had a white border like my poinsettia has.  I added pretty red jewels for the berries.

I used white glitter paper for my mittens and a light teal colored glitter button to hold up my mittens.

A gold bow really sets this glitz and sparkle card off! I used my little bow tool by Craft-Dee BowZ to make this bow as the ribbon is actually all glitter and I couldn't tie this without my bow tool!

The team at Christmas at Sweet Stampin' have made some awesome GLITZ AND SPARKLE Christmas cards for you to enjoy and I hope they inspire you to join us.
