There's still time to join in at
CAS Mix Up
I started by masking and sponging some Distress Ink on a card front.
Then I laid the star stencil on top and used some metallic gold creme through it.
When it was completely dry, I laid the Falling Snow stencil over the top and
added embossing paste. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled
Dazzling Diamond glitter over the top and shook off the excess.
My mask slipped and I had a pretty bad smudge on the top, so it sat there for a few days.
I decided to cut the sponging out and placed it on some gold foil for a border.
I realized I didn't have any stamping, so I had to do some head scratching to
figure out how to finish this card and fit the challenge.
You can see how I solved that problem.
You can also see some, but not all, of the shine.
Oh, and I die cut the JOY 3 times so it would stand out.
Another Christmas card for the stash!
Since I used snippets of gold foil for the Joy, I can make a quick trip to
Pixie's Snippet Playground

I hope you'll join us at
