May Your Days Be Merry And Bright

Hello all!  I just love the simplicity (and bling) of this Christmas card!  I started by covering a piece of dark card with a sticky adhesive sheet.  I peeled the backing paper off and coated it with the Midnight Marine Holographic Glitterbitz.  I used the shadow die from the Merry And Bright All in One and cut it out.  Next I cut the actual die in white.  I kept the inside fall away pieces from all of the bulbs and glued the die to the backing card and glued the bulbs back in to place.  Next I cut a frame using the Double Stitched Rectangles and added acetate to the back of it.  I added mounting foam to raise the frame too.  I covered a piece of white card with another piece of sticky adhesive sheet then coated it with Iced Flake.  I attached the frame over the top of it and added the All in One to the acetate with foam.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7"  x  8" in size.  All for now, Sue x
