I know that we haven’t had Thanksgiving yet, but when you make your own cards, you have to start early. This little gem was inspired by others seen on Pinterest and I don’t know that I would have come up with the color combo myself. I think it’s beautiful and hope you do as well!
I used the daubers in the ink pads and then tapped them on the stamp. I huffed on it (to make it moist again) then stamped on the paper.
I took a second picture from the side hoping that you could see the glitter on the trees. It never comes through on photos as well as I would hope for – but trust me, it’s pretty. I also added different things to this card, Instead of the rhinestones, I added the sequins. Then I added the sequins with rhinestones on top. Ultimately, I liked this one best.
Stamps – Wonderland
Ink – Night of Navy, Marina Mist and Island Indigo
Paper – Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon and Whisper White. Silver Glimmer Paper
Tools – Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Sponge Daubers, Tabletop Paper Cutter (ret)**
Extras – Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Basic Jewels Rhinestones, Silver cording Trim
** One thing to note. When cutting Glimmer Paper, using scissors or a guillotine style trimmer is best. The glitter on the paper acts as sandpaper and will dull your normal cutting blades tremendously. It can also damage/dull your punches and dies. This is not to say you can’t use them – I do, just be aware that it could happen.
