Need a card and have no idea where to start?  In one of those creative slumps?  Take a peek in your Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog, it's a wealth of wonderful inspiration at your fingertips!

On this card I used a layout from page 27 in the IBC, chose some of my fun new holiday toys to play with.  Do you see the tiny bit of shimmer on the Santa and reindeer image (ok, so you have to really squint to see it - the photo doesn't do it justice) ... just ink up your stamp with classic ink, then use a dauber and lightly dab with the new shimmer paint - I used Champagne Mist.  It really gives the card a sparkly glow!  The smaller snowflake (Merry Details sizzlet) was cut from Night of Navy cardstock, then sponged with more shimmer paint ... oh how I love this stuff!  If you're wondering, the background is just wadded up wax paper, which I smooshed in the ink pad and "stamped" it randomly in Brocade Blue and Night of Navy (saran wrap works well too).  I really like the results of this technique.

I was wondering how you made this card. I love the little bit of shimmer on the sentiment. Thanks for sharing.
