how cool is that??! ♥♥♥
i decided i wanted to see how far i could "push the envelope" color-wise..but...still use mostly store-bought, purpose-made CHRISTMAS STUFF from my stash. it turned out, i could go prettttttttttttttttty darned far; and except for some ordinary glitter thickers, i used ALL holiday products. (nice!!) here's m'card now:
(transparency: hambly; patterned paper: pink paislee, prima, best creation, ki; stickers: jolees, k&co, martha stewart; letters: american crafts; brad: mme; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape)
i fell in love with the combination of the glittery gold snowflake transparency and those fabulous trees i fussy-cut from this paper. after that, i just sort of built up the design: a few layers of punched snowflakes, held on with a brad... sparkly, laser-cut stickers to echo the snow theme; and the aforementioned glittery white letters to form my (minimal) sentiment.
finally, a matted label INSIDE the card to write on ...and... to emphasize the frame shape on the transparency. i wish i had the ability/camera that could capture how much sparkle and how many layers of light this thing gives off. i guess you'll have to trust me when i say that it's MUCH more glittery in real life! :)
