Happy New Year! And before the needles have even finished dropping off the Christmas tree, here I am with the first of my Christmas cards for 2017. Last year my New Year's Resolution was to make at least two Christmas cards a week all through the year. In fact I not only kept to it, I made rather more than that and by the time Christmas was made I was able to donate a fair number of cards to charity as well as having enough for my own use.
One way to help you to keep making cards all through the year is to join in Christmas themed challenges, and our monthly challenge at Sparkles Christmas is one of the challenges designed to help keep you motivated. This month our challenge is Lots of Glitter so we'd like to see lots of glitter on your cards.
For my card, I used a glue pad to stamp the sentiment panel and then sprinkled it with gold glitter. I scored a pair of lines above and below the sentiment (TIP - position the lines by scoring lightly from the front and then turn the card over and score more firmly from the back). Then I used the glue pad and glitter again to stamp the background stamp from an old Hero Arts set all over the remaining space. I had some glittery peel off borders which I used to fill the spaces in between the scored lines.
