Heat and Stick Christmas

This card uses the ever gorgeous Lovely As A Tree stamp set (page 58). Another fabulously versatile set. Perfect for all occasions from Christmas to Mens cards ...... for backgrounds - or for main images :o)

The image has been stamped onto Basic Black cardstock using White Craft ink (page 85). This was then covered over with Heat and Stick powder (page 100) and heated with the heat gun (page 100) until the powder melted. Dazzling Diamonds glitter (page 100) was then added to the melted powder and the whole thing heated very quickly again to set the glitter into the glue - a really lovely technique for everyone who loves a bit of sparkle :o)

The colours used are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler and Baja Breeze. The sentiment is from the Occasional Greetings stamp set. The background layer was created using the So Swirly Jumbo Wheel (page 22) and Basic Rhinestones (page 99) finish off the card :o)
