Paper Craft Challenge

Well...this is the first Christmas card of the season. I made this for a glitter challenge on the Paper craft weekend challenge blog and let me just say I am so dissapointed in how it turned out. But thats ok. I have lots of time to make more and get them right. lol The challenge was to use glitter on a project.
I love this stamp but can never seem to get it to look how I want it to and end up putting it back on the shelf so this year I am gonna keep trying until I have this image glittered the way I want it to look!!!
I stamped in black and then dotted a little color on the snowmens' hats and scarves. I colored the trees and then added glitter and micro glass beads to the trees to appear as ice patches once dry I added viva pearl pen and glitter on the trees and on the snowmens' path for piled on snow. This has given a very nice 3d feel to the card. It is really puffy and texturized. I cut black cardstock and red glitter cardstock frames around the scene (which I dont like how they turned out) and adhered to a white cardstock card. I cut the frames by hand and next time I will turn on my cricut to cut them as they are very uneven.
Stop by the Papercraft weekend challenge blog to see everyone elses glittered up projects!
