Hey guys! Happy Friday to you all. Today kicks off with a very favourite Prima feature of mine....
Welcome to our FABULOUS "12 Days of Christmas" Card Challenge 2014! Each year we have more and more gorgeous entries, loads of inspiration for all of you holiday card makers, and 12 AMAZING winners at the end! We are shaking things up just a little bit this year by introducing a product challenge each day. The product featured must be used as a focal point on your project.
Here's how YOU can participate in the merriment!
- Create ANY Prima-based card (or tag) with the product challenge of the day. Ex: Today's challenge is using Prima's glass glitter, glitter sets, or art sugar by Finnabair.
- Upload your project photo (using the inlinkz link provided on the day's post.)
- Let us know which day your entry is for in the title! (Ex: Sharon- Day 1-Glitter)
- You can enter as many times as you wish by December 8th at 23:55 ET!
Day 1 kicks off with sparkling, luminous glitter! What could be more perfect for our featured product to kick this off? Choose any of Finnabair's new gorgeous Glass Glitters, colour-filled Glitter Sets, or finely granulated Art Sugars, to show off on your card or tag.
And here's my first Christmas card of the year. Eeek!
Playing around with all that glitter was so fabulously fun!
I cut a 3D polystyrene/styrofoam star cut in half and covered with two slightly contrasting black glitters from the Ebony & Ivory set on alternate sides to give a more dimensional effect. A couple of old resin stars got a makeover with glitter, along with a Finnabair Epoxy sticker which I dipped the sticky underside into glass glitter and Art Sugar.
I've used spray mount on the back of the card and then applied the some Charcoal Art Sugar, the dabbed with white gesso here and there for a snowy wintery look.
Some glass glitter love going on here :)
I hope you'll be inspired to join in the card challenge, it's definitely a fun one to try!
