Tinsel Like Glitter

December 18th, 2011

Hi Everyone

Just thought I share my Christmas card with. Not had much time this year to make all my friends and family a Christmas card, managed to make a few.

Christmas tree stamp embossed with silver embossing powder

My Christmas card design for my family

I have used a Christmas Tree stamp from Dimension Stamps, Christmas paper I had in my stash. A piece of cerise grosgrain ribbon. I have used double sided tape on the top and bottom edge of the card, sprinkled tinsel effect glitter which I bought from Glitter Magic at the Craft show at the NEC.

Stamp embossed with silver embossing powder.

Silver tree finished off with pink gems

I love this Christmas Tree stamp, I think it is quite a timeless design which I would use again and again. I have embossed the tree with silver embossing powder to give a more of a contemporary feel.  I have finished off the card with self adhesive pink gems and a cerise pink gingham bow.
