Going out of My Comfort Zone

This card is dedicated to my sister because it has embellishments she loves and I do not use too often: ribbon and glitter. What was I thinking? I was at my local stamp and scrapbook store, Sparkle and Sprinkle, with my sister Angie recently. She was looking for their new micro glitters and showed me how they feel soft, not sharp like regular glitter. I was hooked and bought a bottle of a color called Reflection. I used a wide double sided tape, stuck one side to white card, then punched it in the border punch. Then I applied the glitter, rubbing it into the exposed tape. I used my tidy tray and brushed out the excess back into the bottle, but there was extra glitter on my table, on my fingers, in my hair, on my clothes...I sparkle! I heat embossed the snowflakes(Michael's $1 stamp) with silver embossing powder over Versamark ink, used a silver paint pen to outline the larger circle and embossed the words on the tag with the same silver. The ribbon has silver glitter in it, too. I am going to stamp "tis the season to sparkle" on the inside.

PS you can order online from Sparkle and Sprinkle if you are not nearby. See the link on the  right.


  1. That is sooo pretty! Remember your house may not be clean but it will always sparkle!

  2. You don't think my house is clean?
