Merry Christmas

Too early for a Christmas card?
Nope, I don't think so anyway as you all know how
not only does that holiday sneak up on us,
but how it seems we are way too busy with family,
decorating, shopping and just enjoying the special time
that December brings!

So today I have an all glittery and full of sparkle card to show.

I made this card pretty darn tall and also made it for the 
Tutti Designs store using a newly released die

I die cut from black card stock and then stuck it down on
Sticker Paper from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Once it had stuck, I added Sparkle N Sprinkle Cloud Nine glitter all over it.
Then came the coloring right on top of the glitter with Copics.
The Copics did most of the work as they just seemed to pool in the glitter
much like water colors do..so easy and so fast and you have a great glittery card!

A sentiment was stamped and I die cut it with Tutti Designs
Nesting Stitched Rectangles.

I created 10 of these glittery (all different dies)
cards that I will be showing later :>)

Entering the following challenges:
The Merry Christmas Challenge .... ATG

This is so gorgeous. I have had my eye on that die, and you have really inspired me here. Love that you used the glitter and then colored with Copics. I would have tried to inlay all those colors. Duh!!!! Simply fabulous!!! And what fun to do!

Never too early and WOW how beautiful this turned out! Those new stained glass dies are impressive! I'd be afraid to color glitter with my Copics, but I know you do it often. This is amazing with all the sparkle!
