It's Christmas in July over at The Paper Players and I had a hankering to participate. And since I think it's been ages since I've done a MOJO sketch I added that in too.
The awesome DSP you see is from the ancient Holiday Thyme. This is one of the classic collections of DSP that I own and almost never cut into because it's just too pretty. I know it's ridiculous but there you have it. But as you can see I used some of it here along with some equally ancient Cranberry Crisp cardstock and ribbon (which was from the first-ever collection of In Colors).
Now what I really want to talk about is the snowflake. What I wanted was a glittery snowflake cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper, but the paper proved too thick for my snowflake punch. I even tried putting the punch on the floor so that I could press on it with my foot, but I couldn't get the snowflake out of the punch without ripping it. I tried punching a snowflake with some super-sticky paper and adhering glass glitter to it, but that glitter is too chunky and it made my snowflake a big unrecognizable mess. So what I ended up doing was punching the snowflake, rubbing some 2 way glue on it, and adhering Dazzling Diamonds to it. It's not as glittery as I wanted but the real problem is the MESS! I've got shiny glitter everywhere. Surely there's a better solution when I want to add some shimmery goodness to a card! Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by and sticking through my glitter rant!
