Lots of lovely layers

It's coming to that time of year again, and no matter how much I want to bury my head in the sand and pretend that Christmas isn't just under 5 weeks away I need to put on my big girl pants and face facts. Now I stopped making all my Christmas cards years ago as I found it was too much pressure to make them all and I wasn't prepared to start making Christmas cards while I was still thinking of summer holidays, so now I only make a handful of cards for very special people and that allows me to put more time and effort into each one.
For this card I used  Here Comes Santa from IndigoBlu, available from Clare Curd Crafts.

I applied the FlitterGlu to the edges of the base card and then got a good layer of the flakes to cover the glue.
Then edged some black card, one of which I embossed, with silver embossing powder and layered these up.
Next I stamped the snowflake border in the FlitterGlu and covered it in the flakes, and mounted that onto a strip of black card and applied off to one side.
The tree was stamped and embossed in silver and mounted onto 3D pad, and the sentiment was tucked behind.
See you next week ~x~
