The theme of the swap at our July Candy Hearts team meeting was Christmas in July. For mine, I used the Ready for Christmas stamp set, Christmas Staircase Dies, Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, and the new and improved Glimmer Paper.

If you’ve followed me for a while, you know how I feel about glitter. I like the look of it, but I abhor the mess it makes. Well, no more! The fine glitter is actually milled into the new Glimmer Paper. I cut it on my trimmer and die cut it on my Big Shot, and I never saw a single piece of glitter come off the paper. Not one! I rubbed my thumb across it and nothing came off! I think you’ll be seeing more glittery bits on my projects from now on!

 

Here’s what I made:

  • Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″

Stamped with the Ready for Christmas stamp set:

  • first part of sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS
  • second part of sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink onto the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White CS

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
