All that glitters Christmas card.

Posted on 15 Oct 2014

With only a couple of weeks left until Christmas, now is the time to get going on those Christmas cards to send to family and friends. For me Christmas cards should be quick and easy to make with a little something extra to make it special. So for this card i used the Chiswick range of cardstock to die-cut this beautiful tree out of, as well as the backing and matting of the die-cut.

glitter cardTo dress up the die-cut trees, i added a little glitter to the edges to represent some green moss.
I used a glue pen to draw a thin line on the edges of the trees, and then sprinkled them liberally with my lime green glitter from my glitter stacks. Leave the glue to dry completely and then shake off the excess glitter and return it to your little container.

Some extra elements like stars, holly stickers and a sentiment adds a festive spirit to this card.

I used the dies to cut the birds again out of red patterned paper and added them against the cardstock background.
