FF0028 Glimmer Christmas

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 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!

This is beautiful - you should add it to the Jingle Belles "All That Glitters". Thanks for the hint about the roller.

It might be simple, but it's also simply fabulous! And yes, I can see the little man with the telescope too ~ cute!

We entered the same challenge :-) Good luck! Could we ever sit like that when we were younger??? I have never seen that "toy".
