Today I have another Christmas card to show you that is part of a custom card order. The initial request was to create a card in non-traditional Christmas colors and to use the Holly & Ivy stamp from the Holiday Button Bits stamp set, but these two criteria don't really go together since the leaves are supposed to be green and the berries red. Of course I could have stamped the Holly & Ivy in another color, but I talked to V. and we agreed to go for the traditional red and green color combo and add some sparkling glitter.
Last Friday I went to the Kreadoe craft fair with my mom and one of her friends where I bought glitter in various colors at Craft Glitter. I also got their Punch and Stick double sided adhesive sheets. You just cut or punch a shape or strip - like I did on this card - and sprinkle it with glitter.
