It's the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is such a joyful holiday celebrated world-wide that I felt inspired to create a festive card that felt like Paris! I chose a luxe palette of pinks and blacks and LOTS of glitter. So prepare yourself for a massive clean-up of glitter and glue when you are finished, but the results will be soooo worth it! Even my husband said "Wow! Pretty!" when he saw this festive creation. So let's put the pretty to work!
square shapes in wood from Unique Laser Designs
Paint your squares with a nice smooth coat of paint. I like acrylics. You don't need to use an expensive paint; something from the local craft store works great. I painted the three small squares pink, black, and white, and each large square in black and pink. Set aside and let dry.
To prepare the card stock card base, cut a square of bright white card stock 5.5 inches square. Cut another square slightly smaller in black, and then a third in a pretty pink pattern paper of your choice that reminds you of Paris! I found this pretty dimensional pink and white harlequin diamond paper at a large craft store chain. Adhere all your squares together.
Enjoy your glittery crafting holiday season, and from our Unique Laser Designs family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Live your life in color!
