Today, I'd like to share with you a Christmas card, using some Want 2 Scrap Chipboard pieces and the new Nuvo Crystal Drops. I have to say - I sure am having fun with these new drops!
I began my project using the line and dots from Sparkle N Sprinkle's Donna's Stylin' Sayings Set 777. I put them both on an acrylic block and applied Versamark.
Starting at the top I stamped the Versamarked images and heat embossed with Sangria Star. Moving down the card front I repeated the process another two times with Tuscan Star and then Moss Star. These are from the Tuscany color set, my favorite! They are very fine powders and are great for detailed work. I decided to use the sparkly versions of them this time, since there was to be a lot of sparkle on this Christmas card! The Want 2 Scrap Words of Love were applied with Versamark and each given two coats of the same three embossing powders. In order to have them stick well to the card front, I covered the lines and dots panel with a piece of Super Adhesive Sheet, cut it to size, removed the protective backing and positioned the words so that they all had different colored backgrounds, directly on top of the adhesive. Sparkling Snow Glitter was applied to the remaining sticky surface.
The Pine Tree embellishment was applied with Versamark and heat embossed twice with Moss. I then added more Versamark and sprinkled on some Magic Speckle and heat embossed from the bottom (as this is an ultra thick powder and would fly off otherwise). This gave my tree a look of being snow-laden. I forgot to take a photo of the tree before he was lit!
Various new Nuvo Crystal and Glitter Drops were applied to the tree as lights! I used the following colors: Golden Sunset, Silver Moondust, Ruby Slippers, White Blizzard, Sweet Lilac, Sugared Almond, Apple Green, Dandelion Yellow and Red Berry. So much fun! Once the drops were dry, (after an hour) a little white Mon Ami Pull Ribbon bow was tied to the top of the tree for the star.
The card front was attached to an orange, then purple layer before the white card base. The Christmas tree was then attached to the card with Dimensional Foam to finish.
Hope you like my sparkly creation? Leave me a comment to let me know you stopped by!
