Merry Christmas

We couldn't have a 'glittery' challenge without a Christmas here I have a very sparkly ornament....have  to agree with others - it's so difficult to get a photo. This month at CAS  Mix Up the theme is 'Glitter'.
I made the background panel by applying glue to a dry embossed white card and apply gold glitter. (to apply the glue I simply spread some glue thinly on my plastic work sheet and gently pressed the panel raised side down onto the glue - no I didn't hand paint the glue to all the raised bits as you can see there are bits I missed).  Then I used VersaMark and gold embossing powder to give the panel and edge.  Next I die cut my ornament from dull gold glitter card and popped the bits out.  To get the dark red I used glitter wrapping ribbon - stuck the strips side by side onto a piece of double sided tape - that's the roll in the pic - and glued the ornament to the red, and trimmed around it. I die cut a matching 'Bow" and attached that to the top of the ornament.
Then I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment in gold and attached them all the to the white card base.
I am also posting to Addicted to CAS #124 - theme BOWS.
Thanks for taking a peek
