Cute Card Thursday Challenge #86 - Glitter Me Silly / Stamping Bella - Wild Card


Well here's the unvailing of my Christmas Cards for everyone. I found this little image from Stamping Bella called Snowfight. I saw a card done by a few of the Bella DT members and fell totally in love with it. Isn't she to die for. I also fell in love with the paper by Basic Grey called Eskimo Kisses. This particular pattern from the set, Village, is very hard to find, and I don't think there's a store within a 50 Km radius of my house that has any left. LOL. I am now on the hunt for more as I don't have enough to make all my Christmas cards. UGH! I colored my image with 2 colors, peach and the teal. I used puff paint on the fur of her snowsuit and sprinkled it with glitter before puffing it. This makes the glitter adhear to it better. I used some Martha Stewart Snow and glued it onto the bottom to give it some dimension. I found a matching ribbon and ran it down the side. I have found this amazing glitter paper, not sure who makes it, but it's completely covered in glitter. I used my large snowflake punch and punched out a snowflake. I put a teal sugar coated brad from Doodlebug in the middle. Hope everyone likes it, and acts surprised when they get it. I'm off to a scrapbooking retreat this weekend so this is why there've been few post from me lately. I've been cutting and stamping like crazy for the past week or so. All this hard work will mean that I just have to sit and glue all weekend. I should come back with at least 120 christmas cards done. I'll share on Monday,
Hugs xx
