Joy To The World

Good morning and happy Monday. Last month I was lucky enough to win the draw over at IndigoBlu, and as well as winning some fabulous stamps I also get the chance to be a guest designer at the launch of their new Glisten and Sparkle challenge. 
This is what I made.

I started by making a master board using lots of stamps and sparkly embossing powder. As Christmas is coming and I'm nowhere near ready I knew I wanted to make some Christmas cards.
I've used Rain Droplets I chose this as part of my prize so it would be rude not to use it lol.
I also used Bauble Flourish, Large Snowflake, Joy To The WorldRetro Christmas, and Looks Like Rain Deer. Of course there's also my favourite Script Background glistening away in the background. This is an A3 sheet of card so there's lots of room for stamping. 

I've used mainly Frantage for the embossing as it's lovely and chunky and has lots of  sparkle.

Now for the scary part, time to chop it all up. This is an 8x8 piece that I die cut and put some snowy acetate behind.
I then cut this into frames and put the same snowy acetate behind.
and this is my finished card. I still have enough card left for another of these.
I still had loads left for these too.

So I made some smaller cards. Way hey that five cards done and another one nearly done. If I put these with the er one that I've made already that makes - nowhere near enough, time to flick the Christmas mode switch!
Thank you very much IndigoBlu for having me and have a great week everyone x
