Glittered Wreath

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.

I used the following die from Cheery Lynn Designs:
Joy To The World Wreath B481

Sparkle N' Sprinkle Glitters:
Sparkling Snow G1003
Elegant Emerald G1011
Fire Engine Red G1007

Other Supplies from Sparkle N' Sprinkle:
Super Adhesive Sheets SAS02
I" Royal Soft Grip Brush SG 1400 for removing the excess glitter

Other Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Card Stock
Crafters Companion Glue Pen
Tim Holtz Tonic Studios Retractable Pick Pen
Eyelet Outlet Red Rhinestones
Scor-Pal Scoring Board
Gold Glitter Ribbon (unknown)

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Mod Squad Blog Challenge (Christmas in July)

Well, we got rain so the harvest of wheat is on hold again. We may be about half way done though. So that is good. I hope your week is going great and thanks for stopping in and for the lovely comments.

God bless,

Pretty card, Verna. Did you hear about Mark Stansell of Stamp-a-mania? He lost his battle to cancer and passed away Tuesday evening. Just thought you might like to know.
