Season's Greetings ...

Good evening again. With the holiday season coming sooner than
later I finally sat down to try and design my holiday cards. I
decided to use some new goodies I recently purchased.


I was inspired to create a Glittered Frame using Scor-Tape and glitter
from the Make It Monday Challenge #191 ~ Glittered Frames.

I tried making the frame a couple times and found that ...

#1 ~ Not all glitters work well with this technique.
#2 ~ I couldn't make a straight line, even with Scor-Tape
if I wanted to. LOL

So ... I used a ruler and pencil, proceeded to create my square
and then applied my Scor-Tape and glitter onto Vintage
Cream cardstock from Papertry Ink, which I layered
on Tropical Teal cardstock.

The colors and focal point was inspired by the current
 House of Cards Photo Inspiration Challenge/DT Call.

I pulled out my new Together Die from Penny Black and
sentiment form my stash. This is the only holiday
combination I could find that worked.

I'll probably make about a dozen of these beauties during
the week since I normally create 4-different
designs for my holiday cards.

Great results…even though it wasn't as easy as Dawn made it look to create that glittered frame. I agree!

THis turned out amazing! I'm so glad you mentioned using the right type of glitter with the frame technique--I thought my attempt was an utter fail but perhaps it was actually the wrong product. I'll keep telling myself that anyway! Thanks for joining in at HOC this round!
