Season's Greetings with a bit of sparkle

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For my background, I spread some CS Phill Martin Platinum Sparkle Texture Paste through The Snow is Falling Mask and put aside to dry (under and hour).

I cut both of the dies from Sue Wilson's Here Comes Santa Snow Globe Scene together out of Coconut White Card. I popped a piece of Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto Coconut White Card and cut the outer die only from it. I trimmed away just a little from the edges, peeled away the backing and added my decorative die cut. I added Midnight Sparkle CS Glitterbitz to the exposed adhesive. I cut a Double Pierced Circle out of Black Card which was just large enough to pop out behind my santa piece.

I cut the sentiment from Lisa Horton's Stylish Script : Season's Greetings Die Set out of Coconut White and Black Card. I glued them together, offsetting them slightly to create a drop shadow.

Once my background was dry, I matted onto Black Card and then Coconut White Card I edged my background with CS Glue and added CS Crystal Stars Glitter Jewels.

Thanks for stopping by.
