I do love sparkly things and Christmas cards are the perfect showcase for them, don’t you think? I can’t resist adding a little extra bling and I break out the heat tool for embossing a little more often this time of year, too. It helps keep me warm while I’m crafting on these cold winter nights.
This one is so sparkly, I wish it showed up better in photographs. I love this embossing powder! It’s Stardust from Stampendous and it really shines. The die is from Memory Box, it’s called Country Landscape, and I added a little Stardust Stickles to the edge, trees and house roofs for snow. Is the plural of roof rooves? Hooves is the plural of hoof, right? I give up. Anyway, there’s a pretty stardust-y theme going on with this card! Do you think it needs something? A sentiment across the bottom? I’m no good with white space. I feel the need to fill it up with something. Maybe I better get these mailed quick, before I try to add something.
I was trying to get a good angle to capture the sparkly goodness and got lucky with this shot.
More bling and embossing. Hero Arts tree, embossed with gold detail powder and encrusted with jewels. Ok, so they are actually craft store rhinestones. In my world they are jewels. Torn edges adorned with Stardust Stickles for the snow banks and the sentiment is………….wait for it…….Hero Arts! Again! So is the music background, stamped with Memories White ink, as well as the starry background, stamped with Memento Desert sand. I sponged a little ink around the edges, too. SeaShell Sandal, I think. I might have found the inspiration piece on the Hero Arts Flickr group or on Pinterest, I really don’t remember.
A little close up of the precious gems.
Same thing, different stamp. I’m not even going to tell you who makes it, I think you already know.
