Sparkly Snowflake Frame Card

I wasn't going to make any cards this week as I'm getting things together to go visit my sister for some quality crafting time. Poor Cameron has been working overtime cutting out snowflake frames among other things. However, when I saw that Simon Says Stamp and Show has a sparkle challenge I just could not resist. Details can be found HERE

Here is the card I made.

 The snowflake frame is by Lisa Manderachia  Here is the link where the frame can be found. Frame Post Is Here I did have to re-size the frame to fit on my card base.

I painted the gray card stock I had cut the frame out of with white paint. I wanted to have a rustic feel to the frame. The snowflake was painted with Folk Art Extreme Glitter Hologram paint. The stars were stenciled using Sizzix Dancing Stars embossing stencil. (Who said embossing stencils were for embossing only,) I used an embossing pen and Zing gold embossing powder. The trees  were cut out of green craft foam and painted with Folk art Extreme Glitter Peridot paint. The trunk was colored with a Krylon copper leaf pen. The "Happy Christmas" is made using the Ariel font and welded. They were painted with Folk Art Extreme Glitter Red paint. The frame is popped up with 3D adhesive dots. So there you have it my sparkly Christmas card. I can't wait to see what my sister is going to come up with using this frame.

Thanks for stopping by. If I did it correct there should be a post on the 1st with the card I made for the October Silhouette Plus card challenge. So do be sure to come back and check it out. Also be sure to check out what the design team did for the Sparkly theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. There are some totally awesome projects.

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
