There is a new card challenge at the Ribbon Girl Blog today 'make it sparkly'
I'm trying to get one or two special Christmas cards made before the rush begins and still like making criss-cross cards (in fact, every time I visit my teamie Teresa's blog I am inspired to get criss-crossing!! I spent quite a long time making the insert (the image is from Ikido 'Forever Santa' - I cut it with a nestie, but it was too short for the card and fell to the bottom and could not be seen, so I matted it onto another piece of card after shaping the corners with a rounder punch. All edges were inked then stickled!
My 'sparkle' comes from the diamante stems, stardust stickles and a starburst diamante embellishment
To embellish my card I used 'Faye' ivory vintage style cotton lace, raspberry velvet zig zag, burgundy satin ribbon, a starburst diamante embellishment, snowflake charm, diamante stems, a dahlia flower from a 'Barley Sugar' pack, WOC mm cream open roses, ivory hip rosebuds, coffee pretty blossoms, mocha beaded stamens and stardust stickles - all are from The Ribbon Girl
Please visit the Ribbon Girl blog to see the fabulous cards by the Design Team - I am looking forward to seeing all of your sparkly projects!
