Christmas Wishes Spellbinders Card & GIVE AWAY
I love the way glitter looks but I hate using it. It always ends up making me look like I just stepped out of the chorus line since I usually end up with it all over me or in my eye. Eye glitter is the worst. Maybe I need to wear goggles when I use glitter? Because I’ve yet to invest in glitter goggles, I always use Stickles instead of glitter. (Curious about Stickles? Here’s a helpful post.) I say all that to get to one single point…I do like Sparkly Fluff. It’s basically flock with glitter in it. Somehow, I don’t end up covered in it and it’s so soft! I used it on the trees in the card and on that brad. To apply it, I used something that I’ve never bought until recently and now LOVE: this Quickie Glue pen. It held the flock really well. I was impressed!
All that flock and glitter talk and I didn’t really even talk about this card. I made it using these Spellbinder’s dies: Lacey Pennants, Large Nestabilities Squares, and Nestabilities Lacey Squares. I used the smaller triangles/banners as the trees. What’s cool about Spellbinder’s dies is that you can also use the same die to emboss the image you cut. You can see that a bit if you look at the part with the stamping. I ran these dies through my Sizzix Big Shot, a machine I truly adore.
I was working on a totally different post for today but you know what? It took a lot longer than I anticipated! I’ll post it soon though!

Ivory Snowflakes!!! Remember that? Ha, ha, ha, shows how old I am!
I live in grape country so my snowman would have to be made with grape vines. Just woind them around and around and around til you have the perfect shape. Hmmmmm, grapevines. Yeah, that’s what I would use!
Your card is beautiful, I love my nesties. As a kid in San Diego, one of our neighbors had a snowman made from Tumble Weeds which were spray painted white which he fashioned into a snowman.
