Snowflakes and Sparkle Christmas Card

I'm really late getting started on Christmas cards. When the local schools started, it suddenly seems that fall is just around the corner, then Christmas!

This was a quick, simple Christmas card with lots of sparkle and texture. I used two CTMH Thin Cuts Snowflake dies with Indian Corn Blue and Juniper cardstock and a Martha Stewart punch on  silver glitter paper. The blue snowflakes were also "painted" with a shimmer brush with clear glittery shine. I used an old Cuttlebug embossing folder for the additional texture. Here's another look at the glitter. The iridescent sequins have a slight pink tint that I really liked as a pale contrast to the blue.

Thanks for visiting!
