Lots and Lots of Sparkle

Today I would like to share with you a couple of Christmas cards I made with a non Christmas stamp which I am ashamed to say  has had a very sheltered stamping life...not because I don't like it...... I love it.....but I always think background stamp....so thinking how to use this for Christmas I decided to use glitter this time instead of embossing powder. 
Stamp is a Medallion background large wood mounted stamp from Stampin' Up!

I stamped with versamark and stamping off the panel for a part image I then added SU sticky stuff to image and heated which then goes sticky then added the glitter also SU.  I added a brad SU to the middle and mounted panel onto card which has top fold,  Merry Christmas was embossed in gold on gold card and silver on blue one this stamp is an old old one no idea who by.  I was pleased with the finished result and think they make very sparkly Christmas cards.

I will be linking these cards with:
Just add Ink Challenge - Just add Sparkle
Winter Wonderland - Be Different - used non Christmas Stamp

Managed to get some more Christmas jobs done today hope all your preparations are going well...only 8 days to go......!

Bye for now
