Winter Neighbourhood Merry Christmas Card - 52 {C}CT April Stash Challenge

We have a wonderful stash challenge for you this week at 52 {C}CT - Glitter.  You really can't beat some seasonal sparkle!


I've used die cuts and glitter CS to make my card - it's a simple design but I hope sophisticated too!  I made an A6 card base from black CS and covered the entire front with black glitter CS.  I die cut the Winter Neighbourhood shape from silver glitter CS and popped that up.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment label pieces, edged the white label with a black pen, punched the star and popped the label and star up.  To finish the front I added rhinestones to the label.

 Here's the inside with a snowy bank, a tree and a very suitable sentiment to use with glitter!

Here's the envelope with a die cut tree on punched circles.

Please join in with our challenge this week, make a sparkling glittered Christmas card and link it up at 52 {C}CT.  I'm looking forward to seeing your creations!
