Here is a Christmas card that is very, very sparkly indeed, along with the craft room, me and the dog. I certainly like to spread the glitter around ha! ha! I think I might have got some in my cup of tea as well!!!
Anyway, I have followed the great sketch but have used an oval instead of a square as I think the stamp suits this shape more. Having coloured the image with Promarkers I then 'Paper Pieced' the hat and coat. I also applied white flock to her fur muff for texture. I have glittered the snowflakes on the image and added pearls to them. I then coloured and glittered around the edge of the image before layering with Nesties.
Before I added the image I covered the base card with paper and went around the edge with D/S tape before sprinkling with yet more glitter. I did the same with the two strips, which came out a bit wider than I had planned. Lastly, I punched some snowflakes from glittery paper and added glittery gems to the centres. Well, I hope you like this one, I do. Thanks for looking.
