More Holiday Style

Hello Crafty friends!
I have another card for my On Line Card Class. This time is for day 7 "
Shimmer & Shine Cards". 

To create the background I used embossing paste with the SSS stencil "Falling snow" and then covered it with white glitter. My glitter tray had some green glitter residue that I left there on purpose, so you might  see the soft  green tint in it. The sentiment is by SSS and the Poinsettia is by Spellbinders. I added Wink of Stella to the Poinsettia.

To finish it up I added some sequins and red stickles to the border, a trick that I learned from Julie Eversole here.

I'm also adding this card to Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp, Simon Says Christmas.

Thanks for visiting! Have a blessed rest of the day!

Holiday Style

Hi dear crafty friends!
I'm taking an online class called Holiday Style, and enjoying every minute of it!
I'm always slow with the homework, but as I didn't work today, I had some time to play with my inks and stamps, and I want to share my card with you all, (I imagine most of us are frantically creating Christmas cards).
So, on day 2 of class the teachers gave us lots of beautiful inspiration on clean and simple cards. Mine was inspired by this  card by Kristina Werner.

So here you have it. If I have to make this card again I would use a white or silver embossing powder for the sentiment to create a better contrast. I used distress inks for the background and then spritzed water with perfect pearls and it gave a beautiful shimmer to it. The sentiment is by Stampin Up! and the main image is by Stampendous.
Thanks for visiting, have a blessed rest of the week.
