Sparkle

 I was looking for something in my craft room the other day and came across some card kits from Martha Stewart I had bought on clearance many years ago, I think I had made one card shortly after buying but never did them again, well I thought that a silver glittered bird would be pretty for a winter birthday so I left it out and used it on my next birthday card, I have a few winter birthdays coming up.

The 5x7 cards come in the kit with a taped border, you just pull up the release tape and add your glitter. Then the birds come in the kit too and you peel apart the different layers as you add your different colored glitter.  Before applying the bird to my card base, I used my new cloud stencil, I had made my own but I liked the sizes and style of this stencil so I bought it.  I cut a branch and I just had to add some berries to the branch :) I thought this sentiment stamp was perfect for this glittered card.


  • Martha Stewart - Glittered Bird kit
  • Spellbinders - Cherry Blossom die (branch)
  • My Favorite things - Cloud stencil
  • Penny Black - Sprinkles & Smiles sentiment stamp
  • Starform stickers (berries)


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Connie

Wow Connie, this is stunning! What a fun kit to come across. Isn't it fun when we find hidden treasures in our craft room? The stenciled clouds are perfect for your berry branch and sparkly bird. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
