Christmas Glitter

Hello everyone,

This is my first Christmas card I made this year, so I am depending on the local charity organizations for cards to sent to friends and family this Christmas season. Maybe one day when I am retired I will be on time with Christmas cards. Today’s card is in non-traditional Christmas colours to fit a few challenges I saw on the challenge blogs. The pretty Cottage Cutz Snowflake ornament die is from The Scrapping Cottage. I visited a local Christmas market two weeks ago and one of the craft shops had just received their new stock. It was really difficult to choose between all the beautiful designs they have and to stay within one’s budget! These dies are some of my favourites to create with. Hope you like the soft pastel colours and lots of glitter.

Challenges:

Project details:

  • White and blue cardstock
  • Raspberry Road Designs  “Victorian Bliss” digital paper set
  • Cottage Cutz “Snowflake Ornament” die from The Scrapping Cottage
  • Whimsy “Circle Postmark” sentiment stamp for the postage marks
  • KaiserCraft ” ‘Tis the Season” sentiment stamp
  • Grosgrain ribbon
  • Embroidered rosebuds
  • Pearls
  • Skwiglues “Crystal”
  •  Tim Holtz distress inks “Spun Sugar” and “Broken China”

Thanks for visiting today. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Greetings from South Africa,

Amelia

    Good morning my friend, what a beautiful non-traditional Christmas Card. I love it! Wow, those baubles are so pretty. Love the shabby chic look too. Well done. I too have left my Christmas card making until the last minute… do I never learn? Happy crafting, hugs Sharonx

    So beautiful and feminine with the pastels and roses. I just ordered those ornament dies and can’t wait to get them. They are so versatile and I really love how the cap is separate. This is one gorgeous card Amelia. Have a wonderful week. “Hugs”

    Hi Amelia
    Dankie vir jou inloer nou die dag! Sjoe, ek waardeer jou kommentaar. Ek dink mens het die meeste bewondering vir die werk van mense wie se styl die meeste van jou verskil! Ek kan nie droom om so ‘n kaartjie soos die een te maak nie, daarom is dit vir my so besonders!
    Pragtig ~ mooi bly!
