Gingerbread Glitter

Well, the Christmas holiday season is in full swing! Are you ready? Today I have another Christmas card to share with you.  This was made for the Glitter It Up challenge that can be found on the DRS Designs Blog this week.

This adorable Gingerbread Boy (040E) and the Magic of Christmas Day Greeting (196H) are some of my favorite Christmas stamps from DRS Designs.  I used the Double Chevron Card Edger (904P) to decorate the background of the card front since it matched the chevrons on the Gingerbread boy.

Here's a close up of the glittered up cutie himself! He was first colored with Copic Markers, carefully cut out, and then I ran him through my Xyron Sticker Maker upside down so that the adhesive was applied to the front of him.  Next, I placed him in a small bowl filled with fine glitter to achieve this look.  I love the sparkle this adds to my card! 

Sometimes it can be really difficult to create a holiday card without using some kind of sparkle.  I bet you have one you can enter into the Glitter It Up challenge right now! Go link it up on the DRS Blog for a chance to win your choice of 2 stamps from the DRS Designs catalog! 

Happy Holidays to you!
