Merry and Bright Card

ChristyGlitter Ritz, Ink & Paper2 Comments

The design for this card came from CPS #186. 

The large ornament die was just made for this sketch. And as you can see, I got to play with my favorite thing: Glitter Ritz!

I also entered this card in The Crafty Pad’s Challenge 90: Christmas Sparkle. It certainly fits, right?

The sentiment and poinsettias are heat embossed over the glitter! This takes a little extra time, because you have to use a really fine brush to get the excess embossing powder off of the glitter, but the results are worth it, I think.

I also used Copics to add a little dimension to the top and some light shadowing to the main ornament. The shadows only show up when the light hits it just so.

You’ll be seeing a lot more cards like this. The messiest crafts are always the most fun!
