Peace on Earth - CAS-ual Fridays challenge

Sunday, August 7, 2011

I'm slowly adding to my box of Christmas cards for this year.  Ummm...I believe this is number 3.  You're really impressed right?  Hmm...not so much, huh?

This card is going into the CAS-ual Fridays CFC 14 challenge.  Here's the challenge:
My card:

I don't often use glitter.  But hey...I'm always up for a challenge!  In fact, this gave me a chance to pull out the holiday pack of  Martha Stewart glitters/flakes/beads that I bought during the post-holiday sales last year.  Yes.  I admit it.  This was the first time it's made contact with card stock.  Can you say "excess stamping supplies"?  I thought so :)
Well, anyway.  This is a one layer card.  All of the stamping was done with Versamark (except inside the card.)  I heat embossed everything with silver EP.  Then, got busy making "glitzy glue dots"  as instructed!
This was fun...actually all of the CAS-ual Friday challenges are fun.
Thanks so much for taking a look!

card stock: not quite navy (Stampin' Up!)
ink: versamark
stamps: snow burst, four the season (SU)
embossing powder: detail silver (SU)
other: white gold glitter (MS), small zots, glossy accents, heat gun


  1. The gold glitter is such a beautiful accent. You created a very peaceful stylish card :)
