Layered Glitter Christmas Tree Card

Hi Everyone

This is the time of year is when time seems to be the one thing we definitely need more of. I seem to start out creating a Holiday card that I always think will take just a little less time than it actually does. After making a dozen or so, I turn my attention to making a card that is a little less complicated and simpler to make. That is exactly the case with this Layered Glitter Card.

I used a glue pad to stamp an identical image on top of my inked image and sprinkled glitter over the image. The result is a simple but elegant card.

To create this card, I used the following materials:

Tsukineko - Glue Pad
Colorbox Chalk - Warm Green
12x12 Jovial, Blizzard - Basic Grey cut to 4x5.25
Cardstock - Construction - Cement Green cut to 8.5x5.5 and 3x4
Stamp - Christmas Tree - Memory Box
Glitter - Stampendous, Crystal Snow
Paper Cutter
Scoring Tool
Step 1
Stamp your image on the smaller piece of cardstock. Let dry
Step 2
Using the glue pad, stamp an identical image on stop of the ink image. The second stamp doesn't need to line up exactly.
Step 3
Sprinkle glitter over the glue image and shake of excess glitter.
Step 4
Score the 8.5x5.5 piece of cardstock down the center to create an A2 size card.
Step 5
Attach with adhesive the small piece of cardstock to the 4x5.25 piece. Attach this piece to the scored A2 card.
As quick as that, you are finished with this card.
Happy Crafting
