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.

  1. Forgot to mention one tip in the post, so mentioning it here. If you are not a fan of working with glitter (since it is slightly messy), you could always use your favorite glitter paper under the die cut. That will look great too! :-)
