Sparkle and Shine


Yes it's another card today using the gorgeous Stampendous Snowy Postcard stamp.I have noticed a few cards around already this year and this is the second time I have used it so far and I know I will be using it again as I love it. I have really gone to town with the sparkle and shine on this one. The backing paper is First Edition Silent Night. I have used the Tim Holtz on the edge snowflake die which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I added fine glitter and Martha Stewart snow crystals to the image and the gold corner has been sprayed with iridescent spray and sparkle. I have also used DI Vintage Photo and a distressing tool.

I also bought this last year Marianne but too late for that Christmas so need to fish it out again.

Love how you have created the frost aura around the image.

I love this stamp. I saw it at a papercraft show in Thetford a couple of months ago, and ummed and ahhed about whether to get it coz I have rather a lot of Christmas stash already, so didn't get it, wished I had got it, kicking myself now. It looks fabulous in those colours - beautiful card.
