A quick post for three cards.
The challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is Glitter. We all love glitter.
I've used the messy get everywhere kind. I've glued it onto an acetate circle, then glued it acetate side up so most of the glitter is trapped underneath. Some still seems to be escaping though.
I'm not sure about this. Is it too plain?
The next two are for CAS Colours and Sketches. This week it's a sketch.
The first one I made used an embossed panel which I inked over (oh, I inked the embossing folder too) and then finished by rubbing in silver ink. The embossing folder wasn't quite long enough so I turned it round and the ribbon is covering the join.
It is pink as well, I'm not sure if that shows here.
Then I had another go with a stamp I suddenly remembered I had. I stamped and embossed the stars, wet the paper and dropped on brushos. I stirred it around a bit but didn't like the look of it so bunged it on the windowsill to dry.
I should know not to pay too much attention when it's wet. When it was dry, I loved it!
I ironed off the embossing powder and added some sequin stars and glitter. I'm not sure if it's very Christmassy but I don't really mind.

I've used snippets so I can run over to Pixie's Snippets Playground.
Also it's Rudolf Days at Scrappy Mo's so I have just go time before the deadline.
The internet was working, the photos loaded and I can go and finish cooking.
See you all soon.
