It’s time for another Craft Friends Challenge. This time it’s all about Glitz and Glam. Add some sparkles to your project, anyway you like.

For my sample I created a CAS Christmas card. I started with a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock. The paper was folded in half and the bottom corners were rounded.  Two pieces of  Carta Bella Christmas Day Paper were adhered to the lower half of the card. A window was cut with the largest of the Standard Circle  (SM) Nestabilities dies at the right edge of the card. Acetate was adhered behind the card front and the edges of the window were stitched.

A piece of black cardstock was cut and embossed with the reindeer die from the new Frosty Forms die set from Spellbinders. Moonlight Brilliance ink was used on the embossed piece on it’s back and it was embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. The reindeer was adhered on the inside of the card on the right, so it could be seen through the partical circle window.

A layered snowflake was created by cutting and embossing Solar White cardstock with the two smallest Create-a-Flake 4 dies. The smaller one was adhered to the bigger one with foam adhesive squares. A rhinestone was added in the center of the smaller snowflake and the rest of both snowflakes was covered with Glossy Accents. Vintage Glass Glitter Shards was added over the snowflake and it was adhered to the upper left side of the circle window. Part of a Fancy Waves! Border Bling was adhered to the lower edge of the patterned paper. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone swirl under the snowflake finish off the card.
