I know that it is 2 days past Christmas and I hope you had an enjoyable time with family & friends but I have just ONE more Christmas card to show you. When creating on the design team for Create with Connie & Mary, we are given our assignments a month at a time and I got carried away with Christmas cards, not realizing I had one post-Christmas!

What a beautiful Color Challenge for today. The Silver Glimmer is astounding against the Pool Party. Here are the 3 colors for this week:

My Card:

I copied this sleigh idea from Lorri Heiling. I changed up the runners on the bottom of the sleigh a little bit and added some embossing. The shape of the sleigh is from the Top Note Die and hand-cut for the curvyness of the top. I love the sparkle and shine with the addition of the Silver Glimmer Paper and the Silver Glass Stampin' Glitter:

All I did to secure the glass glitter is the add a thin line of Tombow Multipurpose Glue, sprinkled the glass glitter, pressed in place and then removed the excess.

The embossing was created using the Big Shot Machine and the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Folder:

The assortment of gifts comes from the 1" Square Punch. This is the list of all the supplies used for this card:
