Get Your Shine On Challenge

Good afternoon !   It's still snowy here, but nice & sunny !   We've had a fun weekend with friends & family and enjoying lots of food & Christmas cheer and are just chilling out today.   So here I am entering another challenge.   They are fun and I've won some nice shopping sprees, so it's all good !

I'm entering this card into a challenge at webstore Dolce Stamps and Cards.    The challenge details and beautiful Design Team cards can be found here at their Blog:  Get Your Shine On.

I also have quite a stash of stickers hanging out here !    This card was created mainly from stickers and Micro Fine Glitter so it has some sparkle & shine for this challenge.   The ornaments are Elizabeth Craft Stickers which I used 2-way transfer sheets to place onto doubled sided tape by Sookwang.     I peeled off half of the little sections with a small knife and added Ocean Spray Micro Fine Glitter.   After removing the balance of little pieces I added Rose Copper Micro Fine Glitter.  I stamped F605 Evergreen Bough (by Rosewood) twice as it wasn't long enough for this card onto blue/green card stock and embossed with silver.  I used tiny border stickers for the 'hangers' and added a little Merry Christmas sticker by Starform.    I added the ornaments with pop dots and then layered with co-ordinating designer paper (sorry don't have the name but it's from a Basic Grey mini-pad), Metallic Rose & Blue Green cardstock.    I also added Starform holograph border stickers and rose stickles.

You can use this technique with lots of Sticker Designs.   If you are interested in trying out Micro Fine Glitter, Ellen, a Design Team member for Dolce Stamps and Cards has an excellent tutorial on using Glitter if you click onto her card at Dolce Stamps and Cards Blog.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !
Cheers !

Love Elizabeth Craft stickers and glitter, you did a great job on your ornaments simply beautiful. Dolce Design Team used a lot of her micro fine glitter too. I need to try the border stickers I ha with them yet and I love the accent they give your card, it just completes it. Thanks for joining us at Dolce Stamps and Cards Shine/Glitter Challenge.
