Lots of Glitter

What is Christmas without a little glitter!  It is so fun to work with the Elizabeth Craft Silk Microfine Glitters.

Today I worked with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Snowflakes and Stocking Solid dies for my main design.  I also used the small snowflakes from Karen Burniston's Spiral Circle Pull Card dies, and Susan's Garden Notes Whitepine Bough dies.

This is a 6x6 inch card.  The white background was embossed with the ECD Snowflakes embossing folder.  I had to emboss it twice to cover the entire front.  

All the Snowflakes and the Stocking were die cut using the Elizabeth Craft Designs Clear Transparent tape that was attached to white card stock.  You want to make sure you place the dies on the side with the Transparent Tape so when the cover is pulled off the tape, you will have the sticky side to add the glitter.  The Stocking was also die cut this same way.

By watching Els YouTube Video, I learned how to use the glitters.  I used the Soft Teal and Lavender glitters for the Snowflakes.  I combined the two colors on one of the snowflakes.  

 To frame the scene, I added Elizabeth Craft narrow Transparent Tape around the edge of the embossed card stock.  The Soft Teal and Lavender Glitters were used around the frame.  Don't forget to rub the glitter once it is attached to the tape -- this brings out the shine.  

The stocking was also glittered. The glittered white top was glued to the stocking just along the top edges; this made it a little dimensional.  The Elizabeth Craft "Merry Christmas" was die cut on more Transparent Tape and Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter added.  I added a chunky type glitter, from my stash, to the Pine  Bough.  The snowflakes, Pine Boughs, and Sentiment were glued to the card front.  The Stocking was attached with dimensional Tape.  ECD Alphabet Stickers were used for "Dad" on the Stocking.

Working with the Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter is so fun and always looks so beautiful.  There are 40 different colors plus remember, you can use your Copic Markers to color the Warm or Cool Diamond, to create your own special color or shade the colored glitters to make them darker.  I hope you will give it a try.
