Bah Humbug #3 – All That Glitters

This week, the fine folk at Bah Humbug challenged participants in their year-long Christmas challenge to make a glittery Christmas card. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do at first – I was feeling a little glittered out – but then I came across a bag filled with scraps that I decided would be fun to piece together and build a Christmas card with! So, after playing with various combinations, I pulled some Doodlebug cardstock scraps, cut a few Martha Stewart borders down to size, and added the glittery DCWV paper as an accent.

Next, to coordinate with the swirly glitter paper, I used one of the pretty stamped images I received from Lori in my surprise blog candy.  The white paper seemed a tad stark, so I lightly distressed the white background with CTMH Baby Pink Ink to add just a hint of color. Finally, I embellished the card with some pretty glittery flowers from Petaloo’s Glitter Dahlia Box Blend (Valentine) and coordinating bling.

The result? My fourth completed Christmas card for 2010!

Now, if you are have not already done so, be sure to check out my One World One Heart Giveaway – I’d love for you to be a part of this special drawing!
