A little bit of sparkle for this Christmas card! When you use the Elizabeth Craft Designs Silk Microfine Glitter, it will not fall off once you polish it with your fingers and bring out the shine. Today I wanted the A Way With Words die cut sentiment to stand out on this white card, so I used the beautiful Sky glitter on it.
This is a 6-inch square card. A piece of white card stock was cut 6-inches square and a piece of 15mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive was lined around the edges. The protective covering was pulled off and Sky Silk Microfine Glitter was sprinkled over the Adhesive. Be sure to polish the glitter with your fingers. Add this piece to the front of the card.
Cut a piece of white card stock 5 3/4 inches square. Score around the edges for a finished appearance. Attach to the front of the card.
Use the A Way With Words Let It Snow die set and die cut the sentiment using white card stock covered with Clear Double Sided Adhesive. Sprinkle on Sky Silk Microfine Glitter and polish with your fingers. Attach the sentiment to the upper right corner.
Use the Beautiful Baubles die set and die cut three pine branches, using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Attach to the front of the card with a pine branch facing each of the three corners, as shown.
Use the Garden Notes Berry Branch die set and die cut 2 branches using Cafe au Late Soft Finish Cardstock. Use white Nuvo Crystal Drops to create the berries. Allow to dry before attaching to the card. The branches should be cut apart and will be attached behind the poinsettias.
Use the Garden Notes Poinsettia die set and create 2 white poinsettias. Use 100 lb white Soft Finish Cardstock. Shape the poinsettias and leaves using the Flower Tool Kit. Add green and yellow Prills to the center of each poinsettia. Attach the two poinsettias as shown. Once the berries are dry, cut the branches apart and glue under the poinsettias. Use a fine point marker and add a small black dot to the end of each of the berries.
Use the Reindeer die set and die cut the white snowflakes. Attach them around the glittered sentiment.
This card can be mailed in one of the clear acrylic boxes.
