Cheers with Cranberry Sparkle!

I’m creating a fun bubbly card as a celebration card, perfect for sending someone your ‘cheers’ on some exciting news. I have paired a new Catherine Pooler Embossing glitter with two WOW! Changers to add some variation in the bubbles and added interest. This Cranberry Sparkle from Catherine Pooler came out in celebration on her two new ink colours Cranberry Fizz and Deck The Halls, both have coordinating embossing glitters. Today I’m only using the Cranberry Sparkle which is a gorgeous Burgandy embossing glitter, perfect for the holiday season.

Mixing up your Cranberry sparkle!

Start off by adding a couple of spatulas each of Cranberry Sparkle embossing glitter to two empty pots. Next, add two spatulas of Sheen WOW! Changer to one of the pots. Add two spatulas of Texture WOW! Changer to the other pot. With the lids on, give these a good shake to mix up the powders. 

To create the embossed cardstock for die-cutting, smoosh you WOW! Clear ultra slow drying embossing pad onto white cardstock. Next, cover this with Cranberry Sparkle embossing glitter without any changes in it and heat set. Repeat this with two more pieces of cardstock an cover with your Cranberry Sparkle mixes. 

Creating your die-cut Cranberry Sparkle background

With your heat embossed cardstock, die-cut differing sizes of circles from each of the panels. For this card, I used the 5 smallest circle dies from the Hero Arts nesting circle dies. 

Arrange the circles onto a white slimline card base, starting off with the largest circles on the bottom, integrating the smaller circles as you move up the card panel. For added interest, foam mount these onto the front of the card panel.

Finishing the card off

For the sentiment, heat emboss a ‘cheers’ die-cut in WOW! Metallic Gold Rich embossing powder 3 times for a smooth appearance. This is an older MFT Cheers die that is no longer available – I have provided an alternative option in the links list. Adhere this to the front of the card with liquid adhesive. 

Stamp and die-cut the champagne glasses from the Catherine Pooler ‘Good Stuff’ stamp & die set. These were stamped in Hot Tub ink along with Daydream ink. When using the Daydream ink, use a baby wipe to soften out the edge for an ombre look. 

An addition heat embossed sentiment from the Kudos To You Catherine Pooler set was added to finish the card off.

Mixed media Christmas card

I had a real urge to create a mixed media card today, and I wanted to do this with a Christmas card. It isn’t necessarily a traditional style Christmas card, more of a subtle nod to Christmas, other than the obvious sentiment on the front.
