Holiday Wishes Sparkle Card

November is quickly coming to a close.  This is my last week as a Guest Designer at H2H Challenges and your last few days to purchase the Holiday Wishes stamp set.  This has quickly become my favorite stamp set, resulting in numerous quick and easy Christmas cards with WOW factor!  All supplies by Close To My Heart except where noted:

Z1686 Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
X7145B Believe Level 2 Paper Packet
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
CC1015 Holiday Wishes Stamp Set
Z2194 Sky Ink Pad
Z891 Versamark Ink Pad
Z673 White Daisy Embossing Powder
Z134 Prisma Glitter
Retired ¾” White Grosgrain Ribbon
Die-namics Icicle Border by MFT

Design Tip for making the glitter ornaments.
1.    Cut Ornament Shape with Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
2.    Stamp Ornament from Holiday Wishes stamp set in Sky ink
3.    Run stamped ornament shape through Xyron Machine to apply an even layer of adhesive.
4.    Pour Prisma glitter over the top.
5.    Tap off excess powder.

If you do not own a Xyron machine, you can also use liquid glue or tape adhesive.  The Xyron machine puts on a smooth layer of adhesive quickly.  You can easily crank out numerous ornaments for a mass production in very little time.

Here is the original sketch from H2H Challenges:
