Bah Humbug #4: Baubles & Glitter

This week, the Design Team at Bah Humbug issued their fourth Christmas Card challenge – make a card that celebrates your love of Christmas ornaments – which meshes perfectly with smArt Word’s February Challenge of the Month – Glitter! So, I pulled out my Christmas finest, and created one sparkly yet elegant Christmas card!
If there is one purchase of the season I have been looking forward to breaking into for several weeks now, it is the beautiful specialty Anna Griffin Christmas paper that I used to set the tone for this card. I told myself all season that the Paper Princess did not need yet another Christmas-themed paper pad to fill the Paper Palace with, yet I could not get this beautiful paper out of my thoughts! Finally, I frequented the after-Christmas sales until January, until there was only left, and I could not resist temptation any longer. The paper is double-sided patterned cardstock; several sheets (including the bottom one used here) are glittery; this pad contains some of the most beautiful paper I have seen in quite some time!
Since I’m also trying to use up as much stock-piled stash as possible this year, I adorned my card with these beautiful Paper Bliss Ivory Trimmings, and added some glittery Offray ribbon to match. I stamped the sentiment with one of my new post-Christmas Inkadinkado finds (Tags and Wishes), then distressed it with Colorbox Gold Pigment Ink and Imprintz Silver Pigment Ink.
The end result? My fifth Christmas card of 2010!
