Lots of Glitter


Monday is back to work so I have decided to brighten up my day with lots of glitter :)


I used clear embossing paste on my favourite Simon Says Stamp diagonal stencil and covered with gold glitter.  Love the bling and texture!  I embossed the ornaments form SSS in gold and silver and combined with a PTI sentiment.  This has more bling than I would usually use but that's ok for Christmas, right?! 

I will link up with the fifth challenge at the SSS Flickr Group to use embossing and with Virginia's View Challenge to feature metal elements - I think there is plenty of gold on here!  Finally I will link up with Less is More's challenge to use non traditional Christmas colours for a second time - this card definitely doesn't have any red or green on it.  So sorry that the last card I linked up had red on it....I had thought that red and green were banned not red or green - doh :)

I made a second card on the same theme with the SSS ornaments die cut from my glittery background.  I clear embossed through the SSS stencil on the black base to add a bit more interest.
I hope you like my black and gold Christmas cards.
See you again soon :)

  10. Love these Sarah, I imagine most of us are up to our knees in glitter these days, reminds me of my days teaching in the run up to Christmas... the cleaners were never very pleased with the sight of my classroom at the end of each day!
