Sparkle and Shine

May Your Holidays Sparkle and Shine card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Lil' Inker Designs
Here's my super simple holiday themed design for the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I replaced the layout's pair of circles with delicate stitched snowflakes created with dies from Lil' Inker Designs.  After positioning the silver flakes in place on the red card base, I added a black strip with the "may your holidays sparkle and shine" sentiment from LID's Winter Greetings set on top, using foam tape for dimension.  The sentiment was stamped in silver ink, then heat embossed in silver to really stand out against the black background.

Materials Used:
Winter Greetings stamp set, Stitched Snowflake dies (Lil' Inker Designs); Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); Real Red and Basic Black cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Recollections Silver cardstock; silver embossing powder; self-adhesive clear crystals; foam tape


  1. Silver, black and red are such a striking combination and your card is just gorgeous! I love how everything pops against the red card base. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Love that this card is so simplistic but is so striking too!
