Sparkle and Shine

This week's blogger challenge theme is "make it sparkle." My project's not seasonal, but it certainly has lots of sparkle.

The card was created for a recent publication call for holiday cards.  It didn't make the cut, but I really liked how it turned out, so I thought I'd share it for the challenge.

I stamped the sentiment from the Winter Greetings set from Lil' Inker Designs in silver ink on a red panel, then adhered pieces of a crystal flourish to the left of the sentiment.  A snowflake, die cut from shiny silver paper, is set at the center of the flourishes using foam tape.  I placed one more crystal at the center of the snowflake for even more sparkle.  The panel is set on a silver card base.  The card is so shimmery IRL--my photography doesn't do a good job of capturing it.  It's a clean and simple design that's really easy to reproduce, which is always a good thing around the holidays!

Materials Used:
Winter Greetings stamp set, snowflake die (Lil' Inker Designs); Encore Silver ink (Tsukineko); Real Red cardstock(Stampin' Up!); Sterling Silver cardstock (Clear and Simple Stamps); clear crystal (Michaels); crystal flourish (Want2Scrap); foam tape


  1. Lori- what a darling holiday card! I love the sparkle with the snowflake!

  2. Wonderful CAS holiday card! Love how you added the flourish to the snowflake!
