Festive Friday Challenge #19

I love the idea of making Christmas cards well ahead of time so that when Christmas does come around that is one thing that has taken care of itself and you don't have to stress to madly get your cards finished before Christmas is over.

That is why I love the Festive Friday Challenge over at Nicole Derendorf's blog. To check out her blog Click Here

This weeks challenge is a product challenge. The challenge was to use Glitter or Glimmer on your Christmas card. Your challenge is to create a Christmas creation using one or both of these products. Any glitter will do, the Glass glitter is beautiful, the retired chunky glitter too…anything to give your project a bit of sparkle!

I chose to use the wonderful Red Glimmer Paper.


The glimmer paper is the easiest way to add some sparkle to your project and it is the least messiest too! It comes in Red and Silver and is perfect for those sparkly Christmas Cards.

  1. Wonderful card Rochelle! I love how you used the pennant die to cut the glimmer paper then layered it over the circled ribbon....and I like the mat of red glimmer paper at the base - such fab ideas!! Love the colours too!
