Christmas Sparkle



Hidey ho....

I am playing in a Christmas card challenge each week so I can have a small stash of cards before December.

Merry Monday is looking for Newsprint on a Christmas card. Actually, this was quite fun as I just received a tissue paper roll by Tim Holtz and it had a small print on it. (Don't have any stamps that fit that bill, and I don't receive a newspaper, so this worked out quite well).



I am also playing along in the Throwback Thursday challenge at W Plus 9 using this card as my guide:

Ok, so I pretty much only used the curved edge.  :)

Along with the curved edge, I die cut two of the ornaments completely from the Newsprint. I also die cut a small part of the top ornament from the same tissue paper.
"Sparkle" was die cut three times, stacked then spritzed with Sheer Shimmer Frost as was the top portion of the card front.


Wanting to tie the word Sparkle into a Christmas card, I ended up using a couple of stamps from Papertrey Ink to make my complete greeting.  :)

Challenges Entered:
W Plus 9  -  ThrowBack Thursday
Merry Monday  -  Newsprint

Let's go Shopping:
W Plus 9:  Sparkle & Shine trio die
Memory Box:  Classic Ornament, Snowflake ornament dies
Papertrey Ink:  Sparkle & Shine Holiday Additions stamp set
Imagine Crafts featuring Tsukineko:  Sheer Shimmer Frost, irRESISTible Pico Shimmer, Versafine Onyx Black ink
