Christmas in July at Clear it Out Tuesday

What do we think of in the middle of a heat wave? something cool is what I think of and christens is a favourite time for me. So to have Christmas in July is a treat. Clear it Out Tuesday is challenging your to make a Christmas card and the stash item is GLITTER. Don’t we all love glitter. Ultra fine glitter, chunky glitter or even stickles the choice is yours.The sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear Outlet.



The image I used is called Snow Cuddles, it looks so soft and serene. I coloured the image with Copics and spectrum noir markers. I covered the image with double sided tape then added ultra fine glitter from Glitter Ritz. this technique is called Burnished Velvet.


I’m not sure if the picture shows  how glittery this is but it sure does in real life..


I also used a layer of glitter cardstock to the front of the card, just for added glitter,

Thanks for stopping by today and it’s time for you to have fun with glitter and make us a Christmas in July project.
