White & Sparkling Pivot Christmas Card

Good morning friends

***NOTE:  I will be moving my cards and paper crafting to Painted Mountain Cards in the New Year. I've been thinking about it for a long while, and the New Year seems like a good time to make the change. I will leave this blog open, as there are frequent hits from Pinterest and over 5 years worth of cards etc to reference.

Today's share is one of those cards that looks better in real life - the camera just doesn't capture the sparkle. I made this holiday card for a friend who lives in the mountains - and used the Katie Label Pivot and heavy white card stock for the card base.

Then I had fun decorating with layers of white glitter paper, and this adorable owl 3-d sticker.

Here is the card open - with a Pivot card, the designs on the front and back pivot to the centre when the card is opened.

I've had the pine cone punch and evergreen bough die for years - and it was fun to get them out again.  There is a glittery snow bank strip across the bottom of the card, cut using one of the Beach Edges - another Pop it Ups set by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Even with the large size, this card fit easily in a 5 x 7 envelope and mailed for a single stamp.
