Once again I got the bug to use some of my glitter supplies from Sparkle N Sprinkle and used the Kiss Cut Glittering technique which Demo Donna explains in this video. And, of course, I am into the Christmas in July card making and used a die from Cheery Lynn Designs to create this card. I rounded off the corners by fussy cutting them.
I just love that wreath die and purchased it last year and only used it a few times so I am only too happy to use it again this year. But this is using it in a different manner so I think it will be a good card for this year too.
Don't you just love all that sparkle. I think glitter really makes a Christmas card especially look festive. And, I did this one in traditional colors too.
By adding a glittery gold ribbon and red rhinestones I think it really looks gorgeous. I so enjoy doing this technique and even though I and my house end up a glittery look, I think the end results are well worth it.
