2 - glitter cards

Today's project is in honor of my great grandma's 97th birthday. When I got married, she gave me an afghan and some crocheted snowflakes, and these snowflakes she made were actually kind of the theme of our wedding. My grandma once drew a sketch of the snowflake ornaments, which my mom had made into rubber stamps and used on our invitations and programs. We did similar snowflakes on the cake too.
the 4 generations (plus my flower chick cousin)

So I made my Christmas glitter cards with my wedding snowflake stamps, but you can achieve a similar sparkly effect with any stamp, of course!

  • Christmas/winter-themed rubber stamps
  • Glue stamp pad (mine's from Martha Stewart via Michael's)
  • Blank cards
  • Glitter
All you need to do is press the stamp onto the glue pad, press it onto the paper, and then sprinkle some glitter on. You can shake off the excess immediately - or just shake the excess onto your next card, and keep recycling your glitter that way.
These are so easy - I cranked out a set within 10 minutes. They could be a nice little gift wrapped up with a bow, or you can send out your own Christmas greetings with them. Of course the possibilities are endless for designs and colors, but I liked the blue/silver since they still look holiday-ish but steer away from "Christmas colors" for once.
