All that glitters meets 52cct


 Here is my entry for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week.
It is also a card made as part of my design team work for the J and C Creations Challenge Blog, this months theme is All That Glitters.
This card has concertina sides so it gives some depth to the images used. The picture at the back is a lovely snow scene from Heartfelt Creations stamped in Distress Ink Dusty Concorde. I then used a damp paintbrush to blend some of the ink from the stamped image into the fence, trees and windows. The sky has also been blended with the purple ink leaving the roof and ground white. Clear glitter has been added to the trees and the roof to give a little sparkle.
The big tree was stamped on acetate using black Stazon, then glittered from the back using Frantage Crushed glass Glitter in green. the acetate layer has been fixed in the centre of the three folds on the side so it appears outside the window but in front of the cottage.
The beautiful window frame is a die from Heartfelt Creations cut out in white card and placed over the hole cut out of the front card. Once stuck down the filigree cut outs were glittered with Frantage Halo Glitter Mix in silver.
The foliage at the bottom was stamped with a Feather Grass Flourish from Heartfelt Creations and embossed in silver. The flowers were cut out with a Marianne die Poinsettia in silver mirri card with centres covered in Gala Glitz Lavender and Blue Glitter.
I found getting a really good picture a little difficult due to the shine on the acetate but I hope you can see lots of sparkle and shine in these two pictures.
All products used can be bought from J and C Creations.
