Winter Cabin

Here we are again with another Merry Monday challenge.  I hope you're building up your Christmas card stash with our challenges.

Today's challenge from Katie is to add sparkle, shimmer or shine on your card.

Being someone who doesn't reach for the glitter, this was a hard challenge for me!  I ended up with this card which is about as glittery and shimmery as I get :)

It's always hard to see glitter in photos, so I'll explain what I've done with this card.  The card base was spritzed with Frost White Shimmer spray and the bottom was cut with a curved die so some silver glimmer paper could show through.  After the scene was die cut, I colored the roof of the house and the branches of the trees with a Versamarker, then heat embossed with Irridescent Ice embossing powder.

The sentiment was white embossed.

Here's a close-up from another angle so you can see a bit of the shimmer.

Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to head on over to Merry Monday to check out the glittery and shimmery creations from the rest of the design team, who obviously don't have the same glitter issues that I have LOL.

For a girl that doesn't do glitz, you've certainly shown you CAN... Love what you did with the night-sky background, and the dusting of new-fallen snow on the roof-top has me humming carols! Thanks for your kind comment on my FMS post this past week.

You did a great job! Lots of glimmer to enjoy! I love that sentiment stamp, too, it's so retro :)

Beautiful shimmery card Karren, it's a shame they are so hard to photograph.
