Razzle Dazzle



Hello and welcome to your next stop on DeNami Design's "Razzle Dazzle" Blog Hop! We're so glad you could join us today!!! If you're on track, you've arrived here from the blog of the super sweet and talented Greta Hess! If not...no worries, you can head to the DeNami Design Blog to start at the beginning.

Today's hop is all about sparkle, so I decided to use DeNami Design's Sparklets Glitter (and make a big old mess in my craft studio) to create a festive Christmas card:


I stamped the Three Line Border in red and then used a Quickie Glue Pen to add clear glitter to the thin white parts between the red stripes. Quick and simple, and although it was hard to capture in the photograph, this card REALLY twinkles in person!!! I may make a half dozen more of these to add to the collection of cards I'll be snail-mailing to friends and family this holiday season!

Remember to leave a comment on this post as well as each participant's blog along the hop for a chance to win a FABULOUS prize! DeNami Design is giving away THREE gift certificates to their online store (TWO to random commenters and ONE to a random participant)! Woohoo!!! You have until December 9, 2013 at 11:59PM PST to comment.

Thanks for the idea. I needed paper that looks like that but yours is so much quicker and prettier. Definitely going to have to try it.

Love your layout--may have to CASE this card! What a neat idea to put the glitter on the white stripes instead of the red! This can be a great flat card for mailing with flat gems. Thanks for the inspiration!
