Hi there! Have you got all your Christmas cards made? If not, you're not alone. Let me help you - here's a quick and simple card, using red and green mirror cardstock, some Glistening Emeralds Sparkle N Soft and a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet!

Cut a piece of the Super Adhesive sheet to 4" x 5 1/4" and layer to A2 white card base, which has been edged with a red shimmer Krylon pen. Cut out Die-Versions Merry Christmas Script die from the red mirror cardstock. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive sheet and lay the die cut on top.

The surface around the sentiment is very sticky and now you are going to "dump" on the Glistening Emeralds and burnish it in well with your finger.

Die cut the little sprigs of holly (Cottage Cutz Winterland Holly) from green mirrored cardstock and attach to the top left and bottom right corners, using a little Tear-ific Tape and Dimensional Dots.

Add three red self-adhesive rhinestones on top of the holly sprigs and you are done! Full directions can be found in the SNS Gallery here.

Quick and simple - with lots of sparkle! I'm off to make a few more - still got 80 cards to go! 

Enjoy the holiday season,

  6. Can you hear me saying "Ooooh Aaaah". This is just stunning & so glistening with all the embossing powder, the splashy red mirror sentiment and that gorgeous holly. We hope to visit SnS while in Florida, so I'll be looking for some of these products. Tried to get some of the sea ice you used on the penguin card, but OOS. Boo hoo. Really love this one, and it surely doesn't look like a 'quick card'. Good luck with those you have to go yet. TFS & Merry Christmas. Big Hugs too.
