Dazzling Diva #35 Holiday Cheer

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

It's time for another Add a Little Dazzle Dazzling Diva Challenge.  And continuing on with our Christmas in July theme...here's a little inspiration:

Don't you just love those lacy cookies?  Looks like a yummy little tea party doesn't it?

I started by embossing the background with a Christmas bauble embossing folder and heat embossing the sentiment.  Then I cut little bits of my Pucker Me Pink craft metal sheets and embossed them too.  Once I fussy cut them, I sanded them to bring out the backing color.  They were adhered to the card with Ranger Glossy Accents.

Next, I die cut the little bows in Precious Pearl and adhered them with Glossy Accents.   Then added a little added sparkle with a rhinestone to the center of each and done!

Would love to see you join us for this fun challenge!  Use of  AALD craft metal sheets is not a requirement to play along, but we'd love to see you use them!  There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs and if you're looking to do a little shopping there's a special Week Four Christmas in July package which includes six sheets of Pucker Me Pink craft metals sheets and six sheets of  Precious Pearl craft metal sheets. Also, as a bonus you will receive pdf tutorials with wonderful Christmas card ideas using these colors.  The pdfs are available immediately for download when you place an order.  Add a Little Dazzle craft metals sheets are available here.
