Vintage Christmas

Today's card just oozes sparkle and bling. It is one of those cards that are much better in real life as then you can see all the sparkle from the glitter.
The poinsettia and snowglobe images are from a Vintage Christmas CD and the backing paper is from an Elusive Images Seasons Greetings CD. The pearl/diamante bling strip at the bottom of the card is from a Chinese shop kindly bought for me by Debbie. Its really super sparkly bling and of course this girl loves her bling.
Materials: Seasons Greetings Elusive Images CD background paper, Brown cardstock, Pink Bazzil cardstock, Mauve bazzil cardstock, white cardstock to print poinsettia and snowglobe image onto, Vintage Christmas CD images of snowglobe and poinsettia, bling, tiny pink pearls, rhinestones, clear and very pale pink glitter, glue pen, small diamante, dusty pink color box ink pad.
Method: Fold brown cardstock to create square top fold card. Go around edges of pink and mauve cardstock with color box ink pad and attach to cardfront. Print out sheet of paper from Elusive images Seasons Greetings CD and trim to size and go around edges with color box ink pad and attach to cardfront. Print out Poinsettia image and snowglobe from Vintage Christmas CD onto white cardstock and cut out. Go around the edges of the snowglobe - just the globe part with glue pen and sprinkle with Clear glitter. Go over the tinsel on the bottom part of the snow globe with Stickles clear glitter glue and attach 3 small diamante. Attach snowglobe image to cardfront and then attach poinsettia. Go over areas of poinsettia with glue pen and sprinkle with pale pink glitter. Attach small pink pearls to the centres of the poinsettia. Attach rhinestones in the top corner as shown and then attach row of pearls/diamante bling at the bottom of the card.
Wishing everyone a happy weekend.
