Merry Christmas- Two Challenges in One!

Hi Again, Stampers!
I created this card for the PP27 Christmas Theme Challenge at The Paper Players (www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com) and I incorporated the Pals Paper Arts PPA72 Challenge- Winter Whites (www.palspaperarts.com).


When you get a chance, check out both sites for their gorgeous Design Team samples and all of the other terrific entries- as usual, they are so inspiring!

To create this card:

Using the Big Shot, emboss a Whisper White panel with the Petals-A-Plenty EF and apply Frost White Shimmer Paint spray.

Use the Embossing Buddy on a smaller piece of Whisper White and stamp the tree image from Snow Swirled in Versamark ink and heat emboss with White EP.  Use Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake over the embossed images and gently wipe off the ink from the embossing.  Layer this onto another piece of Whisper White.  Using 2-Way Glue, apply glue and Dazzling Diamonds glitter over the swirls and adhere the small pearls in the center of the snowflake images and a medium pearl at the top.

Layer the tree image onto the embossed panel.  Punch out two snowflakes using the Snowflake Punch, gently sponge Crumb Cake on the edges and apply Dazzling Diamonds glitter with the 2-Way Glue Pen and adhere a medium pearl in the center of each snowflake.  Attach to the card using mini glue dots.

Stamp the sentiment onto another piece of Whisper White with Crumb Cake ink and punch the bottom with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch.  Apply 2-Way Glue and Dazzling Diamonds along the punched edge.  Adhere to card and add the 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon Bow.

This card has alot of sheen and sparkle that the camera could not pick up very well- it is hard to take a photo of glitter (the close-up picture shows it a little better) :-)

Accessories: Big Shot, Petals-A-Plenty EF, Embossing Buddy, Winter EP, Heat Gun, Pinking Hearts Border and Snowflake Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Frost White Shimmer Paint, 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Pearls
