Jellypark Friends is currently sponsoring the newest challenge over at Crimbo Crackers, a great new challenge blog that focuses solely on Christmas cards. Many members of the DT made projects to showcase the theme, "Make it Sparkle". I'll be honest, this gal has no clue what a Crimbo Cracker is, but I was thrilled to play along since my teamie, Ruth, has started this new blog all on her lonesome! she is getting a tremendous turn-out, so I do hope you will join all of us!
My card uses the absolutely precious 'Cute Angel' from Jellypark and papers by Jillybean Soup Christmas Eve Chowder. The main image is sprayed with sparkle shimmer spray for lots of shine irl. I tried something I've never done before - I used my Spellbinder dies to create a frame. it was a neat technique and so easy to do! you'll most certainly see more of this from me in the future. I was a bit nervous lining up the dies, but they really make it so easy to do. So the brown cs is actually a frame, not a mat. her halo was painted with shimmerz for more sparkle. I added some candy cane stickles to both the frame and the little prima rose for additional shine. I then added some free-hand doodles at both the top and bottom of the card that mimic the doodles on her dress. a simple card, but I think it turned out cute, and PINK! :)
