Glitter, Glitter everywhere...

So I must have made about half a dozen Christmas cards by now, and here's another to add to the collection, still a long way to go though...

And strangely enough it happens to fit with a couple of challenges! I would like to enter it into the 365 Cards - All that glitters, and as I've used a Digi image from Spyder's Store I should be ok to enter it into her October Digi Challenge.

Here is my card:

I coloured the tree with some Cosmic Shimmer Mica Mist and then piled on the glitter glue, and glitter gel pens. The background papers are from a free download called "Away in a Manger" from Raspberry Road Designs, they have loads of great freebies. The sentiment was a freebie from Pollycraft, and I think it is still available.

As I wanted to get this post uploaded tonight, I took my photo when the glitter glue was still wet - and about 10 seconds after taking this pic, the card fell face down and splodged all the glitter glue!!! I've just abandoned it for now and hopefully it won't be too bad when it dries. The perils of being a crafter...


  1. Your Christmas tree really glitters Claire! Thank you so much for joining in with my October Challenge!!

  2. What a beautiful card! If you've only been papercrafting 6 months, I'm excited to see what you will be doing in 6 years!

  3. Well, at least you got a photo BEFORE you made a mess! It looks fantastic. Very glittery!
