Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #114

It is time for a new Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge. This week Katie has chosen the challenge: Use Sparkle, Shimmer or shine on your card.


I when with a simple style card, I stamped the sentiment and trees then used a matching die cut to create a layer. I embossed the background with a snow texture then covered both layers with a Frosted Crystal embossing powder, I love that it looks like glistening snow. I added the sequins to cover up a couple of dark spot that were picked up from my less than pristine Versamark pad.





The first picture does not really show the embossing so I tried for a close up.





Supplies: White and black card stock, Poppy Stamps and die cuts, Antiquities Frosted Crystal, embossing folder, sequins.

Come play along with us and stop by the Merry Monday Card Challenge blog and take a look at all the great creations by the design team for some inspiration.

Cheers,
Nina
