Sparkle and Shine

Today’s card is an old one – to me. I made this for my GoDiva swap last month and have been really wanting to show it for quite some time but I wanted to make sure that everyone in my swap group received theirs. Since I think I’m the farthest away and have received mine, that all is safe.

I wanted to play with the Candy Cane colours on this project – certainly not a scheme that really denotes Christmas to me which is why I wanted to play around with it. Let’s just dive on in.

The base is plain old Whisper White and I layered the centre with Garden Green and Baja Breeze (which I embossed using the Elegant Lines embossing folder and then I sponged it with Whisper White craft ink).

Over that layer, I added a Whisper White Snowflake #2 which I cut out with my Big Shot. I then sprayed it with Champagne Mist Shimmer paint – it really does sparkle. I added a little Blushing Bride flower to the centre and a Basic Rhinestone.

I used the Merry embosslit for the tag – I adhered a strip of Real Red over some Whisper White and then ran it through the big shot. I then added a strip of Garden Green and stamped the word “Christmas” from Fundamental Phrases. I added a little ruffle of Blushing Bride Designer paper in behind and a stripe of Chunky Silver Glitter to make it pop. I then tied it all on with a strip of Candy Cane Designer Fabric.

Now, after I made this card, I thought it’d be sweet to put together another little set based on this concept so I ran with it and here is what I did.

I started with a tall plain white wine bag and added some Blushing Bride designer paper to the bottom – once I had already textured it with my Big Shot. I then copied the striping effect and added a strip of Real Red cardstock which I ran through my Big Shot with my Letterpress plate, Northern Trim. I added a strip of Scallop Border Punched Garden Green and some glitter. I then added a bunch of Baja Breeze snowflakes and rhinestones to the bag and tied on a matching tag with Candy Cane fabric.

To finish everything off, I made a little set of 3×3 note cards using the Candy Cane Fabric, Baja Breeze cardstock and Snowflake Sizzlets and Basic Rhinestones. What a cute and fun hostess gift, no?
