Happy Saturday, peeps! I have a very quick (and late) post today; this card is so simple, it's almost embarrassing! The Festive Friday challenge for this go-round is Mardi Gras or Glimmer Paper, and since my Christmas card stock is very low, I chose glimmer paper!
So here we go:
I already had a Blueberry Bushel card front cut and scored, so I used that as my base; I cut some Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with one of the Hometown Greetings Edgelit dies and adhered it to the front (hard to see the sparkle!!):
Then, I attempted something new...I tried to "color" my glimmer paper "Merry" (cut from Merry Christmas Thinlets) with Blueberry Bushel ink and a brayer....it worked a little bit, but mostly got glitter on my ink pad, LOL! Did you know that a sticky lint brush from the Dollar Store works great to get glitter off most anything? It's a staple in my craft room! Anyway, I had already adhered this piece of glimmer paper to an adhesive sheet, so it was very easy to adhere it to my card! I added a sentiment from Merry Christmas to All, diecut with a Rectangle Stitched die, some sequins, and it was done!
I am also adding this to the Jingle Belles' All That Glitters challenge!!
I am not sure what you call these little magnetized building things, but they're sure fun to play with!
According to Cassidy, this is a man looking through a telescope...yep, I can see that!
Enjoy your day and be blessed! And be sure to come back tomorrow for a new Paper Players challenge!
