One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Holiday Card Boot Camp - Day 5

I think I will be jumping around...doing what I can with the products that I have and the time I have to do it.  My MIL is nearing the end of life and we are at their house every day...sometimes for all day and into the night.  My FIL really appreciates our presence even though we have care givers...so I am just doing what I can. 

Day 5 with Jennifer seemed like a quick and easy card to make...I used the cuttlebug snowflake folder and embossed it using water color paper.  I then used Distress Inks:  faded jeans and peeled paint with the ink blending tool.  After I inked it up, I spritzed it with Perfect Pearls and let it dry...I die cut a Sizzix snowflake..twice for some depth, and I blended in a little bit of blue on the flake and then I added "Icicle" stickles...just smeared it around with my finger...oh it looks so shiny and sparkly!  When it was dry, I adhered the two together and placed it on the card.  I die cut a button and inked it up also...I want to be able to send these in the mail without having to add extra postage...The sentiment is from the Stylish Sentiments:  Holiday.
Do you see the sparkle form the stickles?
