Sparkle and Believe!

A sparkly Christmas for you today. I wanted to whip up some quick cards, which naturally wasn't quite as quick as I thought.....those dang glue dots are sticky........first the one finger then to the other finger then transfer to the scissors then to the paper piercer then back to the fingers.......geeshssshhhh.......

I used Basic Grey Wassail paper (on sale right now!) and put it through the Cuttlebug snowflake folder (on sale right now!) then using dtp (direct to paper), I ran my antique linen distress ink overtop of the embossed snowflakes.

Using the silver leaf pen I made a border around the edges of the Wassail. I added a piece of Ocean Tides cardstock which had been punched with the threading water punch and tied a piece of Ocean Tides satin ribbon around the paper, adhering it at the back. Believe it or not, I didn't want to use a bow on this card!!

Then I glued that piece to my card base of Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides cardstock.

I decorated a Heidi Swapp ghost shape snowflake with antique distress stickles and frosted lace stickles. Then I cut the tips off of a snowflake that I had on my desk, that had been cut with the Cuttlebug Snowflake die and added frosted lace stickles to that.

I adhered it to the Heidi Swapp clear snowflake (with those sticky dang glue dots) and topped it off with a mirrored bauble from Stamping Bella. I glued more mirrored baubles to the corners of the card to dress it up and finally added my sentiment, which is from the set Joyeaux Noel (Christmas Snowflakes) at Cornish Heritage Farms.

Today is my hubby's 50th birthday so we are going to town...... whoot whoot!! Probably going to fight the masses of shoppers - what a way to celebrate a birthday!

Then again, maybe no one will be shopping today......
