Christmas Postcard

This was a really fun card to make and very easy to make.  In case you're asking yourself, "does Sherry like glitter", you only have to look at the last few posts to find the answer.  Well, YES I love glitter. And I'm loving the Chunky Glitter #108797 $15.95 (4 colors) that SU makes.  The sparkle is so pretty, no matter what color I use or how I use it. I started out stamping the Christmas Postcard stamp #121428 $9.95 in Black StazOn #101406 $7.95 and coloring the image using the Stampin' Write Markers #119806 $109.95 (38 markers). I covered the colored image with VersaMark #102283 $7.50 and the Heat and Stick powder #100625 $4.50, and get set with the Heat Tool #100005 $29.95.  Then I added the clear Chucky Glitter over the entire colored image.  I cut the image out using the Oval Frame Sizzix Die #114521 $19.95 and the Big Shot #113439 $99.95.  I placed the image so that the inside oval would cut out the image.  I framed the oval with 2 of the large scalloped circles from the Scallop Circles #2 Die #113469 $19.95 I used a 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 " piece of Very Vanilla #101650 $8.50 for the card base.  I folded the card at 3", creating an offset opening. On the 3" side I glues down a scrap piece of the Deck The Halls DSP #120810 $9.95.  To finish the card I placed it in the middle over lapping the 3" edge, allowing for a unique way to open the card....and a very good way to use scrap piece of card stock and DSP.
