Stained Crystal Technique using Joyful Christmas with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

Are you ready for today’s post.  I always say this is my most favorite card and I’m going to do it again…this IS my most favorite card ever I only wish you could see it in person – it’s gorgeous.  I did this card for my Founder’s Circle Swap – 120 of them!  So it’s easy and fun with that definite WOW factor!  If you like it, I’d love to have you PIN it to Pinterest (just hover over the card and click PIN IT).  Thanks…  Make sure you watch the video, there are some great tips in there as well…

Joyful Christmas

The poinsetta is from the Joyfuly Christmas stamp set

found in the 2013 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog

and the saying is from the the Special Season Stamp set.

It’s hard to see just how WOW it is, so sparkly but it’s not messy :0)
