Hi everyone …

Hope you are all keeping warm we have had frost today and the dogs here are all cuddled up together trying to keep warm. as the night ‘shave well and truly drawn in our thoughts turn to Christmastime I thought I would share a card that is a joy to make.

First choose the Gilding flakes, I chose some with red flakes in but they come in all sorts of colours. I use cosmic shimmer glue and a piece of cut and dry foam. I spread the glue across the pad with a coffee stick I have a batch of these for using just for this purpose once the glue is spread and soaking into the cut and dry I then take my stamp and INK it with the glue…..if you see what I mean then taking your card stamp the glues image transferring the glue from the stamp onto the card …wash stamp…. then taking the card with the glue hold it over the gilding flakes and sprinkle over the card leave for a minute ¬†this lets the flakes set on the glue and then gently taking a rough sponge rub GENTLY off leaving the now gilded tree …I added a few red gems to mine but you can now do as you wish adding glitter or snow to the background…I used a Time Holz holly stencil at the back on my cardstock just to make it more Christmassy bit again it looks just as good left plain with a simple greeting Love this stamp I hope you do too and if you would like to order it I’m sure you would have it in time for those last minute Christmas cards.
