Christmas Sparkle!

This week’s edition of my Stampin’ Up! Perfectly Plaid bundle showcase features this gorgeous, sparkly card! The previous three instalments have featured cards, tags and paper garlands. You can find them here (part 1, part 2, part 3) if you haven’t already seen them.

Let’s make it…

The card base is created from Whisper White cardstock and I have chosen to create a square card for a change. Onto a slightly smaller Night of Navy layer I have stamped the Birch background in Whisper White ink.

Since its Christmas, I have broken out the Glimmer Paper again too! This time I have used the Silver and punched out a circle using the 5.7cm Circle Punch and the Pine Tree. Sandwiched between these two layers is a piece of Night of Navy cardstock cut out using the Starburst Punch. I have added bow created from a length of Night of Navy Baker’s Twine (now retired) to the tree. If you don’t have any of this twine left over you could colour the Whisper White Baker’s Twine using the dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend.

The sentiment piece is created by stamping onto Whisper White cardstock in Night of Navy ink. As well as the sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set I have stamped some snowflakes from the Frosted Foliage stamp set. This is then cut out using the Stitched Rectangles dies. The final touch is provided by a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the centre of one of the snowflakes.

Next time…
