It's been another of those hectic weekends so I'm only just getting round to posting my Less is More card today. The theme this week is Glamour and Glitz - and what a shame Mandi is still away sorting out her new business because, as Chrissie says, it's just her thing! But Jen is back from Egypt so we get to be inspired by her gorgeous samples as well as Chrissie's.
I was a bit spoilt for choice on the sparkly front - should I choose rhinestones, dazzling diamonds glitter, metallic embossing, the brushed silver or gold card stock, my die cut snowflakes...? In the end I opted to use just a pinch of the brilliant (no mess!) silver glimmer paper. Come and have a look:
Happy Hour was one of the first stamp sets to catch my eye when the new catalogue was launched. I love how graphic it looks with the patterned drinks in those beautifully shaped glasses. Today though I opted to fill the glasses with elixir of Christmas cheer instead - that's where the glimmer paper came in!
I stamped the glasses on the back of my glimmer paper and cut out the drink part, then glued those onto the stamped glasses. These were cut out and mounted onto card stock which had been scored to provide a 'grounding'. To finish, I added a few fussy cut embellishments from the Happy Hour set...
... and one of its fun sentiments. I really like the way this one fits the shape of the glass next to it.
Here's what you'll need to make this card

So, I'm sure you don't need me to tell you that it's now only 29 days until Christmas day - and we need to be posting things considerably earlier than that! Yesterday at lunch, the children were laughing at me for saying that time seemed to be whizzing by. "I know!" said my eldest son. "It seems like only yesterday it was Saturday!" I frowned at him. "But wait!" he added, while the others fell about laughing. "It WAS Saturday yesterday!" Those bad, bold children had better watch out as Santa only comes for GOOD children!
I've still got loads of ideas for Christmas cards and I'll be back tomorrow so hopefully see you then!
