Peace on Earth - Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle Release

 Hello! I'm dropping by tonight to share a card with you using the BRAND NEW Holiday Sparkle release from Simon Says Stamp! My first card to share is a very simple and elegant card featuring one of the new dies, 3D embossing folder and die combos, and acetate pre-printed sentiments!

I started off by using the new Country Church 3D Embossing Folder and die combo. I used white cardstock, and die cut the layering pieces also from white cardstock for a elegant tone on tone effect. Something about white on white is just so fun! And it added a tiny bit of extra dimension to those pieces.

I chose a sentiment from the Bold Christmas Acetate Sentiment Strips - I added foil to them using Deco Foil, and my Pinkfresh Solid Hot Foil Plate. If you want to see how to do that, you can check out this video HERE that I created a while back showing this technique. These sheets are toner based, so normally you would use them with a laminator or Minc machine - I love that I can use my Solid Foil Plate and reduce one appliance in my limited craft area!

I adhered those on with tiny dots of liquid glue to attach them to my card, this way there was no adhesive showing through the acetate, and it hold securely nice and easily. 

I added some snowflakes using the separate pieces in the new Sparkling Snowflake Frame and Trio wafer die - die cut from SSS Champagne Glitter Cardstock. This was another way to maintain the neutral feel to this card, but also add a bit of glitter and texture to it as well. I adhered those with just touches of glue in the centers.

Finally, I added a good sprinkling of Pinkfresh Metallic Gold Pearls to enhance the gold on the sentiment, and add a bit of extra sparkle and shine!
