A Little Glitter on the Evergreen

I made these two cards for the Ways To Use It Challenge on Split Coast last Thursday. The challenge was to use glitter!

My cards are very CAS - I embossed a nestie square in the center of my 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" cards - then I stamped this lovely framed evergreen block from Rubbernecker onto a 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" panel, went over it with my glue pen and sprinkled glitter over it. I adhered the panel inside the embossed frame with foam tape.

On the top card I used Dazzling Diamonds which makes it look like it has snow on the branch. (can you see it on my pic??)

For the 2nd card I used a blue topaz coarse glitter. I like how it added the touch of another color to the green stamping of the branch.

I'll stamp a sentiment inside depending on whether I need this as a Christmas card or for some other occasion after the holidays!

If you are new to my blog and want to see how I do the dry embossing with the Nestabilities - check out my tutorial here.

Thanks so much for coming by - I hope you are all set for the holidays so you can relax and enjoy them!
