Festive Friday Challenge #19 - Stampin' Up! Medallion Christmas Card

Hi everyone
Today's challenge over at the Festive Friday Challenge is to use Glimmer & Glitter!!! Perfect for a Christmas Card don't you think?!

I decided to use the Stampin' Up! Medallion stamp with the scallop sentiment from Perfect Punches layered on a glimmery scallop circle. I coloured the silver glimmer paper with Bravo Burgundy using a sponge dauber. It seems that when you colour the silver glimmer paper, it really brings out the sparkle....as if it could GET any sparklier. The two best things about Stampin' Up! Glimmer Paper:

a) there are no bits of glitter debris on your work space...none! It's fantastic stuff.
b) it has been carried over from the Summer Mini so you can still order it!!! :)

For my 'glitter' element, I applied some of the Champagne Glitter from the "Fine Galaxy" (page 145 of the catalogue). Using the 2-Way Glue Pen, I dabbed some glue on the circles of the medallion image and sprinkled the Champagne Glitter over the top.  

For my final festive touch, I sprayed the card with some champagne shimmer spray, made by combining some Stampin' Up! Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (pg 147) with some Isocol in a spray bottle. It is beautiful!! :)


I love how this card sparkles & shimmers. Hope you can all play along with your glimmer & glitter this week!! :)
