Merry Christmas (full of sparkle and sunglasses suggested)

This is one extra blingy card. First I used a 'Creat a Smile' stencil and blended all those lovely blue Distress inks together. Once I had finished I of course sprayed with something that added extra glitter to the look (the name eludes me at this time)
I wanted to enter this in the Fusion Card Challenge: Blue Christmas

Isn't this beautiful. This is where you can go with the Sketch or the Photo or both so I went both.

I used colours and white white white from the photo and the sketch. I used a line die to cut first one side then the other to get the lovely top piece with the curves and stitched look. I layered a piece of white glitter paper first then added thud cut piece.

Love when the photo picks up the twinkle and sparkle of it all.
I die cut the Merry Christmas and was going to layer it but found that I can only get a good clean cut when using this very thin shiny metallic paper. Tried all different card stocks and even paper and was just no good.

Anyway the metallic paper cut perfectly so glued down the words and finished off with a couple of gems that worked perfectly with the colour scheme. If you look at the die cut on the full card shot you will see it has a dot for the 'i' in Christmas/ Its one of the gems in miniature.

Okay so will go enter in the Fusion Challenge.
