More Sparkle

Hi there

I mentioned in this post that I was going to try some other colour options with the same design.  Making more than one card at a sitting helps to build your Christmas card stash faster. However, despite my best intentions I always end up making some variations along the way. I have two of these to show you today. 

The thing I haven't changed is the lovely silver Glimmer card that adds gorgeous sparkle to these cards. It is so easy to punch and the glitter stays put. The first card uses Elegant Eggplant as the background to the silver embossed tree from the  'Snow Swirled' stamp set. Despite the detail in this stamp, it embosses beautifully.

The second card is the same design, with the tree from the 'Lovely as a Tree' stamp set. I used markers direct to the rubber, trying out the new In Colour 'Gumball Green'. Despite the offputting name, it coordinates really well with Cherry Cobbler for a more traditional and rich colour combo. It is a little difficult to see, but I used a fine glue pen on the branches to add some Dazzling Diamonds glitter for coordinating sparkle.
