Here we go!

I ADORE the October special & decided to re-create a few cards from the Holiday Sparkle cardmaking kit that is available ONLY in October 2018! 

Let's take a look at the 2 cards I created....and then we'll talk more about what's all included in this kit. 

Here are the cards I created....

I ADORE snowflakes & wanted to add some more glitter & sparkle to my card design....so out came some glitter paper, shimmer trim & the new Winter Flurries Thin Cuts (metal dies) to create the cards shown above.  

Take a look at this close up....those "blue looking" sequins - they are ACTUALLY iridescent in color!!! But because of the blue card base - the sequins turned the color blue! 

The words "Warm Wishes" come from an EXCLUSIVE stamp set that is also included in the Discounted Cardmaking kit!!! Take a look at all the beautiful sayings in this set!!

I also used the Shaker Card Thin Cuts, to create a Glacier Cardstock stitched circle (even though there is a white stitched circle frame included in the kit ;) ) .  
This Thin Cut set is so FUN!!  Do you see the other metal die from this set, that I used on my card???

Yes - you guessed it!!!....I used the heart confetti with some Raspberry cardstock & added it to the sequins inside of the Shaker part of the card!! :) 

Now, let's take a look at the second card - you can see I used the single snowflakes stamps..... from the stamp set above.  

The border of snowflakes to the left of the card, comes from another stamp set called "Holiday Borders"...I just couldn't pass it up, as the snowflakes matched so perfectly!! :) :

Just a note...I put a few too many sequins inside the shaker part, before I closed it....I am AMAZED at how little of the sequins you use in each shaker box!! :)  
The "Holiday Sparkle" cardmaking kit is a pre-printed, Cut Above kit (that means everything is included)  to create 12 - 5x7 Christmas cards! 

Here are the 2 card designs created by CTMH.  
All the images you see on the card, are either punch out die cut shapes or stickers!  The kit ALSO INCLUDES, the foam & acetate windows needed to create the shaker part of the card PLUS the bag of loose sequins too!!  All you will need to put these 12 card designs together is your adhesive! :) 

You can EVEN CHOOSE to decorate the included envelopes with the stickers!! 


Make sure to ask your consultant for ALL the details regarding these two EXCLUSIVE Close To My Heart items!!
