Happy Holidays card

Hello and welcome friends. Still trying to get back into blogging rhythm. And I have a sparkly holiday card for you today:

Simon Says Stamp sent me the Pine Needle Wreath wafer die from this Making Spirits Bright release. Thank you, @SimonSaysStamp! I used this die as the focal point for this card.

I started by taking a rectangle cut out of white textured card stock and adding an adhesive sheet to the back of this panel. Next I die cut the pine needle wreath from this panel. 

Then I took another panel, slightly smaller than this rectangle, made out of some packaging material. I added a sheet of adhesive to this one too. I removed the backing paper from the adhesive on this one and sprinkled all over with some fine glitter. To make sure the glitter will stay put, I burnished it with my fingers. 

After this, I removed backing paper from the wreath panel and adhered over the glittered area. I love the combination of white and gold!

For a sentiment, I used one of the older SSS stamp sets – Holly Berries, This was a Stamptember exclusive in 2014 and is still a favorite of mine. Unfortunately this one seems to be no longer available. I stamped the one with “Happy Holidays” with archival black ink and cut out a banner.  I also added a strip of black cardstock to tie in the black on the sentiment and assembled the core pieces of this card.

To add a little something to this wreath, I punched out a couple leaves from gold mirror cardstock and also a squiggly. I mounted these along with an acorn on top of one side of the banner. 

Finally to embellish, I added a couple gold confetti and star sequins and added everything to a craft card base.

I think my pictures are not doing justice to all the sparkle and glitter on this card :-) But in real life, this one is just so pretty. Love how it turned out.
