Today I have a "Frosted" holiday card. Take a look...
This one is covered in glitter and texture. Just the way I like it!!!
Before I get started here is what I used to make it...
Distress Watercolor Cardstock 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Tim Holtz Eclectic Elements Fabric
Black card base (Tim Holtz Distress Collection from Core'dinations Cardstock)
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Countdown Coins

Ok! Let's get started!!!!!
Trim a pieces of the watercolor paper to 4" x 5 1/4".
Pool Brushed Pewter Distress Stain at the top of the card and tip it up to allow the stain to run down the card. Allow to dry.
Stamp card with snow background using Weathered Wood Distress Ink.
Ink the edges of the card.
Add the Speckles Layering Stencil to the card and apply some Texture Paste with a palatte Knife.
Immediately sprinkle the Texture Paste with the Rock Candy Dry Glitter and allow to dry.
Look at that sparkly texture!!! Love it!
Cut two pieces of Eclectic Elements fabric to create fabric "hills". The pieces should be about 2" wider than the card.
Trim a piece of the Watercolor Paper and apply a generous amount of glue stick.
Add the fabric to the glue and "ruche" it to create gathers.
Repeat with the second piece.
Add some Rocky Candy Distress Stickles to the the top edges of the fabric and allow to dry.
Stamp the deer image and the bow image on Distress Watercolor Paper and cut out.
Add Rock Candy Distress Stickles and Dry Glitter to the antlers.
