Today I’m showing a card I might never have made. But, I had to. I am part of the Design Team for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. This month the technique challenge is to make a card with a glitter background! Wow! Talk about challenge for the Design Team! I just don’t do glitter! But, I did what I needed to do and I think the card came out pretty nicely and with minimum amount of glitter in my craft room (and face, and hands, etc.)

Go over to Try Stampin’ on Tuesday to see the tutorial and lots of great samples of the technique.

Design Notes for Glitter Christmas Card:

Well, I pretty much followed the tutorial. I tried to get the green ‘shapes’ to be Christmas tree shapes. Pretty close, right? I used the Sweetly Stitched Framelits to cut out some trees with little white garland. Not sure why I thought it needed more gold but I really like the look of the Gold Mini Sequin  Trim!
