It's my month to make a reminder card for the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Card Challenge. The August challenge is "sparkle" so I went for full coverage sparkle!
I stamped the Snowy Postcard image, and coloured the holly in a strong green for a pop of colour and the roofs and snowy highlights in a very pale blue. I then patted my Versamark ink pad all over the image, sprinkled with a sparkly embossing powder and heat embossed. I add red gemstones to the holly, a black border, and a white cardbase.
In real life it is very sparkly but it was incredibly hard to photograph. I took about 20 shots - some inside with lights, and a bunch outside in various light. I finally settled on this one (done outside in full sun) as it does show some of the sparkle.
You have until the end of the month to participate in the challenge so head on over to Happy Little Stampers and get a Christmas card done for your stash!
