Christmas Wishes

I am trying to achieve a glittery affect without making all the mess that comes with using real glitter so I decided today I would use my Sakura Clear Star glitter pen. I also worked with Gina K. Designs images from the Christmas Wishes set which was part of a past year's Christmas TV kit.




The second photo shows how the pen leaves a bit of shimmery affect on the snowflakes and also on the tree where I added a bit to simulate lights or ornaments. The white panel was a pre-printed design on white card stock which was the basis of the card. From there I added a red, green and a white layer on which the design was stamped. I then stamped the snowflakes all around the center design and added a paper ribbon which is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs called Allison's Ribbons. The finishing touch was to add the glittery look with the Sakura  pen. But I still thought it was a bit plain so I added the red rhinestone gems to make it a bit more festive and elegant.

I am going to put my craft things away for today. I have other things that need attention but I was glad I still took a bit of time to enjoy my hobby gone wild. LOL

Take care and enjoy your weekend.

God bless,
Verna

You are NOT kidding about the mess with glitter. I LOVE glitter, so I put up with it, but the Sakura Pen is a great alternative. Your card is so cute. It seems kind of vintage-y some how...maybe it's the colors or the images. Have you noticed that they don't do the traditional red and Christmas green any more - what's up with that??? Anyway, I love this card!!!
