Good morning! Today starts a new Linky Party over at Craftin' Desert Divas. The theme is "Make it Sparkle". I have been having a blast making my own backgrounds with different techniques. For this card I used some of my Tim Holtz distress inks to make an Ombre' sort of background on some watercolor paper.
I used my Fancy Frame dies to cut out my top layer of the card. I stamped the trail of stars using the large bunch of stars stamp from Bitty Blessing a couple of times so it would go off the top layer onto the bottom layer. I colored those in with some Stickles for a little bling.
Then I used the sentiment from Tis' the Season and embossed that in silver. To give the card a bit more of a "pop" I put some scor-tape on the back of white cardstock and ran it thru my Cuttlebug with the stitched star die from the Banner die set.
After I ran it thru I peeled off the scor tape and covered it in glitter for some extra sparkle. The card is not the traditional type of Christmas/Holiday card but that was my intention, I wanted to try something different then I usually do.
I hope you pop on over to the Craftin' Desert Divas blog to play along with the "Make it Sparkle" linky party.
