Papertrey Ink and Simon Says Stamp Christmas Card

Hello everyone and welcome to another challenge over at Christmas Card Challenges

and this time the theme is anything goes. We had some wonderful entries last week and congratulations to the winner and top 3 - it really does get harder to choose the winners each week because so many more deserve to be showcased.

This week I chose to start with a Die (Phrase Play 8) from Papertrey Ink that has been in my stash for a while waiting to be used. I cut the die from some satin cream card and then backed it with some double sided adhesive film. I then added some Fine Iridescent Glitter and burnished it so that it doesn't shed too much.


The outer frame dies are from Simon Says Stamp and I cut these in the cream card and red card so I could layer them up. I finished up by adding the sentiment and some stars.

I hope you will stop by the Christmas Card Challenge blog to see all the inspiration from my talented Team Mates, and join in with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by
