Holiday Sparkle/Season of Joy BLOG HOP

Welcome to this Blog Hop where participants have the option to highlight the Holiday Sparkle Card Kit contents OR our Fabulous NEW Season of Joy Cricut Collection! I'm sure you're in for a BIG treat!

If you are coming from Chris Robertson's Blog, you are on the right track. Continue making your way around the circle to see some awesome creations! You can find a complete list of participants through this link.

I debated about which product line to work with tonight but settled on Holiday Sparkle. I totally love these shaker cards and the possibilities they offer for Christmas!

The card base, "Happy Holidays" sentiment, and striped Raspberry strip (behind the main sentiment) are all part of the original design of this card. By adding a few touches of my own, I was able to personalize it a bit. 
With the background of the circle being simple, I decided to stamp the image in Raspberry ink for some added color. I also random-stamped the small heart images in the bottom area using Ballerina ink. 
To create some additional color in the Silver Sequins, I cut out some of the hearts, using the Thin Cuts Shaker Window & Confetti. They were cut from Raspberry cardstock. The larger, stitched circle was used to create the covering of the shaker window. I used Lagoon cardstock. 

In order to make the card a bit more festive I decided to add Santa, of course, as well as Silver Embellishing Thread. A few additional confetti hearts were a perfect finish, I think. 

Here is a close-up of the details. I used some paste to give Santa some texture. You can see details about that process on this blog post.

You can find complete details about the Holiday Sparkle SPECIALwhich is only available this month and while supplies last, through the respective link. These cards are super easy to put together; I'm talking minutes!

While I haven't yet created anything with the Season of Joy Cricut Collection, it totally has some fabulous designs! I will be playing with it very soon!
