A Waltzingmouse Christmas – November 2013 – Day 2

Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken Using Waltzingmouse Stamps Season Flourish and Spellbinders
Hi there blog friends, we’re back for Day 2 of  “A Waltzingmouse Christmas”!  Today we’re sharing Christmas cards for both the new sets and the ones you have in your stash.  Every season I try to make one or two ‘red’ cards, so this is my second of the season, I just love the punch of red.  A little bit outside of my zone, you’ll notice that this one is glit-ter-ray!  My friends will laugh because I don’t normally do glitter — me and glitter, don’t get along – it’s a disaster waiting to happen.  I was in a happy spot with this glitter paper; I think the glitter tide is turning.   I picked one of the elegant new Waltzingmouse Stamps sentiments from Seasonal Flourish.  It’s done on a backdrop of four corner elements from Spellbinders Grand SquaresSpellbinders Corner Flourish and Spellbinders Captivating Squares.  I crafted an envelop from vellum to show off that splash of red and decorated the flap with a glittered Corner Flourish.

    Good Morning Becca!
    Its crisp and sunny today, with the Sun streaming through the windows!
    I really like this card but I (as yet), don’t have any of these Dies but the concept is another one to COPY!
    I suppose I could use your corners, the smaller one I think .
    Anyway another lovely card Becca!

    Gorgeous card – will be CASE-ing and sparking my own twist on this. I love glittery paper for Christmas – this is really nice. I have a question, though – what do you use to adhere layers to your glitter paper? I’ve had problems with things sticking to it in the past….Thanks, Becca – stunning card.ReplyCancel

  • Norah McPheeNovember 20, 2013 - 2:26 am

    Good morning Becca,
    Normally i like the cards with the subtle touch of colour or if it’s a strong colour a hint of it, but you have totally turned that on it’s head today. I must have the same reaction to glitter as yourself namely it always goes everywhere except where it is suppose to go, but the beautiful red glitter paper and its oh so shiny is just so pretty. I love the ornate corner die that you have used as it is so intricate and done in white, set against the red just looks so beautiful. Another winner Becca and a die i don’t have at the moment, but will definitely work on getting.
    Love and crafty hugs

  • Kelly SchirmerNovember 20, 2013 - 5:40 am
