Sparkly Season's Greetings

Hello!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a super sweet and sparkly Christmas card to share.  This card was created with the new Cardinal Greetings Stamp set and I just love the classic elements in this set and all of the various ways you can use them...

To create this card I started with an oval frame diecut out of the middle of my card front.  I then stamped my bird and tree image onto separate Neenah White Card stock, colored them in with my Copics and white gel pen, and trimmed them out.  These were set to the side while I cut a piece of acetate slightly larger than the oval window and adhered double sided tape to cover the entire piece of acetate.  This too was set to the side while I adhered the tree branch to the backside of the oval, and the bird onto the front side.  The adhesive covered acetate was then laid behind all of this covering the open "window", and then covered with Martha Stewart glitter.  At first I had contemplated using white glitter to give a snow effect, but I felt like it would blend too much into the cardbase and so I chose the blue to really give a pop, and it did!  I then finished the card by stamping the sentiment in a green ink and adhering some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins.

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
