A Glittery Christmas



I had a Christmas card class last night at Stamp Fever in the city of Orange and this is one of the cards we made. I think it was the ladies favorite with the snowflake glitter strip which is so easy to do! Here is how it is done. Scor-Pal has a great double sided tape that is 1 1/2" wide, all you do is place the tape on a white strip of paper that is 5 1/2" x 2" (it doesn't matter if it is crooked, it will be cut), remove the carrier (the paper backing), punch it three times with a large snowflake punch, place the carrier back on the tape and make sure it is rubbed flat. Then you sprinkle blue glitter in the punched out sections, rub with your finger, shake off the excess and remove the carrier. Now you will pour on white glitter, rub with your finger (it is okay to pour it over the blue snowflakes, it won't stick) and shake off the excess. Finally rub off any excess glitter and cut the strip so you don't have any paper showing on the edges.
Recipe
Paper- periwinkle (unknown brand), white
Ink- Cool Peri Adirondack, VersaMark
Plus- Scor-Pal double sided tape, white glitter, blue glitter, silver cord, corner mount sticker and snowflake stickers by Stampendous, white embossing powder, foam squares
