Christmas Card Challenge #38

Good morning! Happy Sunday! This week's Christmas Card Challenge #38 is to use glitter on our card.

I haven't made a Christmas card with a snowman on it in a long time, so I decided to use this adorable image, Caroling Snowmen, by Meljen's Designs. I colored it with Copic markers and added LOTS of glitter to it. My glittery cards never photograph well. :( I promise, it's there! I added lots of glitter with my Clear Spica Glitter pen and then I used the Liquid Applique along the brim of their hats. I dusted it with Crystal Fine glitter before heating it to make it puffy. I also added lots of Stickles and Tiny Twinkles.

I layered my image on a scallop square. The patterned paper is from the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly line, and I stitched around the edges.

I added a super shabby bow with a button and some twine.

That's it for me today, but be sure you head over to the Christmas Card Challenges blog to see the rest of the design team samples. I hope you have a great day!! :)
