Glitter for CAS Christmas

Hello crafty friends.

It's time for a new challenge at
CAS Christmas

Loll has challenged us to use glitter on our CAS Christmas Cards

I used some beautiful Glitter Paste that my sweet friend Loll sent me for my birthday.

I LOVE this color!

I found this NBUS stencil, taped it on a piece of mixed media paper
and used a palate knife to spread the glitter.

It worked beautifully except for the center of one star. 
So I covered it up with the sentiment.

I also pressed the edges of the design piece in my embossing pad
and dipped it in some embossing powder that was a great match
right down to the glitter.

Our Design Team and lovely Guest Designer Michelle have some
sparkly inspiration cards to show you.
Do check them out then join us at 

I'm also going to add this to
Jingle Belles

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

LOVE the bright blue sparkle of the paste through your gorgeous stencil Bonnie. Amazing how the embossing powder on the edge matches perfectly. When I first saw your card, I thought "I wonder how she got the paste so perfect on the edges?" :) Beautiful sparkle Christmas card! xx

Gorgeous blue glittery snowflake card, Bonnie! The embossing powder matches the color of the glitter paste perfectly and the edging gives the panel a finished look.
It’s a wonderful design and a great recovery!

I love how you tell us when things have gone wrong on your cards Bonnie - SO relatable, and brilliantly rescued! The sparkly embossing paste is something I wouldn't have been attracted to but your sparkly blue snowflakes are absolutely gorgeous!
