Sweet Stampin' - Glittler & Sparkle

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Glitter & Sparkle'  So come grab your stamp and glitter, and make card or project with us.

For my card this week's card I'm sharing a Christmas card I made for my daughter and boyfriend (their first couple's!). As soon as I spotted this Stamping Bella stamp I thought of penguins mate for life, plus it's soooo cute. Using the patterned paper as inspiration I decided to go with lilac for the main colour. I coloured the image with Copic pens, and added a die cut poinsettia and a fancy border frame to finish it off.

Here's What I Did
To create my card I matted a 7" x 7" white scalloped card base with lilac card and pretty patterned paper. Next I stamped my image onto colouring card stock and coloured it with Copic pens and die cut it into a square. The finished image was matted and layered onto co-ordinating card and attached to a die cut border which I attached from behind to create a frame, this was then added to the card base using foam tape.

To finish off I used glitter on the trees and snow, and added a die cut poinsettia and a few leaves.
