Go Glitter

Good morning.

We have a lovely new challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.

Svenja is our lovely host this weeks and the challenge is to use glitter on your creations.

Of course I just love my glitter and I had to make a Christmas card.

Glitter and Christmas are just a perfect pair don't you think?

I found hidden away in my craft stash some red glitter embossing powder so I just had to use this.

I love blue and red together on a Christmas card so I went with that.

I first blended two shades of blue onto some white card stock.  I then stamped in the same blue some snowflakes using the Snowflakes Sentiment set from Stampin' Up!

I waited for this to dry and gave it a blast with my heat gun just to speed up the drying.  I then added some more snowflakes but this time I used versamark ink and added the red glitter embossing powder and heat set this.

I love seeing the powder turn to liquid and with the added glitter it just makes it more lovely to watch.

I then die cut an oval and repeated the same process as above but this time I added a sentiment.
 I added this to my card using some foam squares for a bit of dimension.

I hope you can see the glitter as I found it a little difficult to photograph.

Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the blog over at Daring Cardmakers for more lovely glittery inspiration.


  1. Blue and red are a great combo Dawn and that glitter embossing powder really sparkles! Shabneez x

  2. Fab take on the theme, Dawn! With the blue and red your card has a slightly skandinavian feel - just love that.

  3. Wonderful colour palette and use of the glitter embossing powder, love it!
