Glittered Christmas Greeting card

Glittered Christmas Greeting Card 

Today I have created a Christmas cards with Couture Creations 5 x 7 embossing folder  C0723597

This matches some of the images in the Couture Creations Vintage Christmas paper pad C0723551
So I have combined both to create a card with dimension 

Emboss Kraft cardstock with Christmas Carols embossing folder 
and gently rub over red ink

Dry brush edges with gesso.
Then rub with Inka Gold red metallic paste.
Adhere to a 5 x 7 red cardstock card

Trim out matching image from Vintage Christmas pack.
Use a crackle stamp to create crackle and swipe over with Dimensional magic, allow to dry 
Matt with red cardstock 
Adhere to card front with 3 D foam tape.
Decorate as desired with bakers twine and punched leaves and 
Couture creations gems 

Handy Hint use a white paint pen to fill in detail in images and faux stitching 

Lastly spray the entire card lightly with a paper varnish and sprinkle over white glitter. For
a glittery sparkle.

Happy Crafting and Merry Christmas
