Sparkly Christmas

It can be hard to take photographs at this time of year with those dark days meaning that a flash is required, and this is particularly so with sparkly holographic card, so I must apologise for today's photo's.

"Sparkly Christmas"

There are layers of sparkly holographic card and black & silver holographic card, and diecuts of black glittery card stuck onto the silver card for extra background interest.

"Justrite Bauble"

This is the same bauble stamp that I used on the vintage Christmas card posted on 17th October, sorry that it's so hard to see the stamping against all that sparkle from the camera flash! It's amazing how different the Christmas cards are just from the difference in background papers.


This view shows the background diecuts and the glittery black poinsettia layered up with some silver ball gems in the centre. A string of gems makes a fab hanging for the bauble.
