Merry Christmas Eve! I’ve got my 4th card in the series I created for myself that uses a Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground, along with an image from Lawn Fawn’s Simply Celebrate Winter stamp set. I decided to use the ornaments stamp with the “Merry and Bright” Sparkle Blend.
I love the bold, bright colors of the “Merry and Bright” Blend, so I made sure to color my ornaments with similar colors using my Zig Clean Color markers. I fussy cut the ornaments out and perused through my stash of backgrounds to see if there was anything I had the coordinated. I came across one that I made with Distress Oxides a while back. The colors I used are Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, and Peacock Feathers.
My shaker window uses an old die from Stampendous. It goes perfectly with the stamps, so I had to use it. When I added my shaker bits to the window, I thought it needed a bit more blue, so I added sequins from the “Baby Shark” Sparkle Blend. I felt that now the mix worked perfectly with the look I was going for. I did omit the little sharks that are in the Blend….though it would be fun to do a holiday shark-themed card! I really like the different colored snowflakes in the “Merry & Bright” Blend. I backed the shaker window with striped cardstock from Lawn Fawn. I made a white colored base, which I inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide.
I love the non-traditional colors of this card. I think it’s joyful and fun. Now, all I have left to do are the presents and the houses from the Simply Celebrate Winter set.
