Glitter Galore

Do you love glitter? If you do this is the challenge for you.  Julie, one of the Christmas Elves at Holly Jolly Christmas Challenges has chosen "glitter galore" for the theme of this weeks challenge. Can you have too much glitter on a Christmas card?  

My simple looking card was made with a Christmas bell die by Dee's Distinctively.   The die  is a three piece die that is quite detailed.  I first put a piece of wide Be Creative tape on a piece of card stock and then cut out the pieces to make my bell. Once the pieces were cut out I took the top layer off of the sticky tape of one of the pieces and then burnished glitter on the piece. I then did the same to the other two bell parts.  I used a different colour of glitter on each section. I then glued the pieces of the bell together and layered them on a die cut.  Next I added a ribbon, pearl and then layered it on to a piece of matching glitter paper from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will join us for this glitter galore challenge.
