I had started out with different glitter paper - but it was coming up too gold. I thought it would like nice with warmer colors so I came up with this card using the same dies.

Merry Monday: Twinkle Snowflake
I actually sent all of my Christmas cards yesterday - hooray!!! But for reasons I cannot totally explain, I sat down and made Christmas cards this morning??! And I enjoyed it. It's so much more fun when the pressure is off. If truth be told, I'm a little embarrassed by my Christmas NBUS stash and thought I should use a few of the items that I was most excited about when I purchased them. This incredibly detailed snowflake from Memory Box and this Tim Holtz Sizzix die set including 17 Christmas words were at the top of the list.
I have totally given up getting decent pictures with glitter. It totally whacks out my camera. At one point, I figured my camera's auto-focus was the culprit, but this photo was shot with manual focus and it's still off. The glitter isn't in focus and it seems to make everything else slightly off focus. I did shoot this close-up so you can actually see the glitter.
I am playing along with Merry Monday's Winter Themed Challenge
The stars dotting the i's on the sentiment are not in the word die set - they are cut from the snowflake die.
The glitter paper are scraps so I do not know what they are to link.
The twine on the second card is from Hemptique and is a true kraft color, but I cannot find it anywhere, so I've linked the natural color.
