Hi, I finally have my very first Christmas Card made for this year…Woohoo!!!! I am so far behind! How about you? I have been eyeing the CAS Mix Up Challenge all month as I love the Ombre look on any card. This card was made using the new Glitter paste that I fell in love with as soon as I cracked it open. You can find a link Here!
This already stenciled background piece was sitting on my desk for 2 weeks just waiting to be used. So I got out my Ornament Dies from SU and my favorite Verve Christmas sentiment and went to work. The snowfall EF in the background is also from SU. The bows at the top are from Paper Smooches. What do you think of a non-traditional color for a Christmas card? I kinda like it! It’s Samba Ink from Catherine Pooler and Flirty Flamingo paper in the background from SU. I used the glitter paste right over top the ink so it would shine through. I had a very hard time photographing this card. I guess due to all the shimmer. It looks lovely in real life.
So to wrap things up….for my card, I chose Ombre, Stamping, and Glitter Paste. Thanks for your visits and Happy Stamping! Nanc’

Wow! Your ornaments look fantastic, Nancy, and I do love them in non-traditional colors. I’m sure with the glimmer paste they look even better IRL. I have a few Christmas cards made but I’m way behind last year.
