Shimmer Christmas Card

To begin with this card was very difficult to photograph due to the foil front of the card. But this is the best photo to show both the foil card front as well as the glittered Christmas die:

Card stock base is 110# weight white card stock from Mikes. Used silver glittered card stock for the card front. Used the Christmas Tree Greetings die by Sue Wilson for the glittered holiday greeting on the card front.

Wanted the glittered holiday greeting die cut to have some dimension so I cut out three more greeting die cut pieces from 80# weight white card stock. Stacked those on top of each other keeping them together with a glue pen. Then put the glittered die cut piece on top, again using the glue pen to keep it all together.

Cut and scored the white card stock base. Cut a piece of silver glittered card stock for the card front. Put that on the card stock base using the ATG. Cut and scored the foiled card stock and put that onto the glittered silver card stock using the ATG. Using red tape I put the glittered die cut holiday greeting piece on the foil on the card front. Added a green crystal from the stash to the center of the star at the top of the holiday greeting tree. Here is a photo to show the glittered holiday die cut piece:

This card has a lot of shimmer and shine and the camera certainly does not capture that. Easy card to put together. TFL and YOLO
