Sparkley Christmas

We are at the halfway point at Unstampabelles and you've have been creating some fab sparkly Christmas cards. I ma enjoying visiting all your blogs. There is still time to enter so get that glitter glitter pot out and sparkle!!

This is my halfway inspiration for you.

 
The base card is light gold card stock which I covered with some glittery fine mesh/tuille that I bought in the Christmas decs. section of a local DIY store ( as I sais once before crafters in Cyprus have to look in some strange places here in Cyprus for their craft goodies). I wrapped it around the card and secured it with glue dots on each corner. I then covered the glue dots with gold stars.
The image is from a CD by Ooh La La  'Christmas Presence'. To add more sparkle I added a strip of punched out waste of gold.....as a true crafter I throw nothing away.... Then gold peel off border strips we added to give it dimension. The greeting is also from the CD and I added it to gold card and rounded the corners with an Xcut corner punch. I then added gold stickle
s to the angel to give extra sparkle. No sparkley mess with this one but I did get in a tangle with the fine sparkley tuille which wouldn't play nicely for me and I thought I might end up kneeling on it while I glued it in place!!
 
I hope you find time in your busy schedule to make something sparkley to show us. The twist this time is to make us smile!! There'sa generous voucher on offer from Susan for crafting goodies. So go on what are you waiting for pop over to Unstampabelles.....link in sidebar....and get creating.
 
As this is my last post before Christmas I will take this opportunity to wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Healthy 2016.

  1. The gold cardstock looks so wonderful with this pretty image. Loved your ingenuity with the tulle, and it's always fun (and helpful!) to read how a cardmaker has adapted other non-card supplies in the creation of a pretty card. Brilliant idea to add the texture of the tulle fabric, as it is gorgeous on this card. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and the best wishes for a great 2016. Glad you have some nice sunshine to enjoy over the holidays. It's sunny & warm in South Florida, but we left on a cold morning, so the warmth was lovely. TFS & Blessings.
