glittery, shiny gifts...

Wanting to try a knew technique I went to this post...

However I didn’t have the Tim Holtz sparkly paper, yet, so I used what I had which was silver.
To the silver glitter paper I added Tim Holtz Adirondack cranberry alcohol ink.
I wanted a deeper red for the background package.
The base card is white linen card stock.
Using the homemade glitter paper, as well as silver and gold metallic card stock run through the BigKick with a swirly Tim Holtz embossing folder, I cut out squares for the packages.
Next I cut the ribbon and bows from silver and green glitter card stock using MFT Die-namics “Gift Shaker Window & Frame” set.
All these I applied with glue dots.
The verse was made with silver glitter card stock using a die from Tim Holtz “Holiday Words:Thin” and then glued to the front of the card.
