Now to my card

I water coloured my background and initially it was way too dark and nothing I put with it was making me happy . I gave it another generous spritzing washing the colour out some more and when it dried I was super happy with it .  I ran it through the big shot using one of my favourite embossing folders , Softly Falling . To add some sparkle ,  I took my embossing paste and mask and then added some silver glitter while the paste was still wet . It is a Christmas card and who doesn't want sparkle for Christmas right ? I grabbed my Eastern Palace dies , my newly arrived Foil Frenzy DSP , some Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and my Decorative Ribbon border punch and some mini sequin trim and put it all together until I was happy with the result . I used the baby wipe technique on Glossy White for my  die cut trees . I hope you find some inspiration from my card you have seen today .
