Just Add Glitter for PCC 270

 I'm loving that I can make Christmas cards for all the challenges right now.  That is what is running through my head every day right now anyway.  When I first saw the challenge for Just Add Ink was Just Add Glitter, I immediately thought of snow.  I always think it is so beautiful when it first falls and is sparkling in the sunlight like glitter before it is disturbed by people or animals.  That is, of course, if I have no reason to get out in it and can just enjoy it from the window with a hot chocolate by the fireplace.

I used the colorful seasons bundle to create this card and the color theory DSP for the background.  My snowflakes at both heat embossed white and cut out of silver and diamond glimmer paper with the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I wasn't kidding when I said I will be using the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheets with all precision die cuts in the future.   I used them with these snowflakes and can I just tell you the time and stress it saved me.  I was absolutely thrilled that after I had used the diecut brush to remove all the tiny pieces, I basically have a snowflake sticker to place wherever I need it.  

I added rhinestones to add more sparkle as smaller snowflakes drafting down.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white to help it pop on the Dapper Denim cardstock.  The card interior has more of the Colorful Seasons snowflakes with Dapper Denim ink.

This card was entered in two challenges.  Check them out to see the inspiration cards by the design team and other creative entries.
