Dreamweaver Christmas In August Challenge

I am so excited to get to post CHRISTMAS CARDS!  I don't mind the heat so much but I love Christmas!  I have more Christmas Stamps and Stencils than anything else!  LOVE the season and all that goes with it.   So we are having Christmas in August Challenge for Dreamweaver this month and below is the prize for the the challenge winner!  Play and win! 

My first post is using this stencil.  I love DOUBLE GLITTER TECHNIQUE!  So here is my finished card for the day.

I did an 5 X 7 Card (A7) size.  I love the larger size!  I used some Dazzlers, Ultrafine Glitter and Microfine Glitters.  The "white" glitter is actually Crystal Glitter!  I used two tones of green, twig and various pink!  LOVE the softer colors!  All Glitter is from ART GLITTER!!!

Sorry it is blurry but you can see a bit more of the detail color.
I LOVE the way the branches came out!
And again with the finished card!  Happy Creating

  1. You and Laura are kindred spirits, like Anne (with an "e") and Diana in Anne of Green Gables. This is really stunning ...absolutely love that pink glitter color on the hearts.

  2. Love the sparkles on the hearts, and the branches are so crisp and clean. Love it, love it, love it!

  3. Gotta love those glitters! This is beautiful Kristi, and I love your colors!

  4. Kristi, great job, it's always fun to see everyone's takes on the same stencil.

  5. Great job with the glitter...so pretty!

  6. I love how both you and Laura used a variety of glitter...UF to chunky...with this stencil!
