Merry and Bright {Scrapy Land #27}

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge from Scrapy Land!  The theme is Anything Goes using any brand of dies (low-profile/steel ruled) that Scrapy Land sells.  Since they have over 40 brands to choose from, you shouldn't have any problems.

Today's Christmas card combines a digi image colored with Copic markers from Make It Crafty with dies from Sue Wilson Designs (Festive Collection - Snowflake Background) and Sizzix (Tim Holtz's Holiday Word Script).

I adhered the Snowflake Background die onto a piece of vellum covered with a piece of super adhesive sheet and Sparkling Snow glitter.  

The Merry and Bright die cuts were covered with VersaMark and then heat set with Firecracker Red embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The green from the mat gives the vellum a touch of color and makes the glitter sparkle even more.

The card base was dry embossed using the Sue Wilson Designs Quilled Flowers embossing folder.

Now it's your turn to create something for the Scrapy Land Challenge.  The winner, which is chosen by the designers, will receive a $15 gift certificate to go shopping at Scrapy Land.  You have until Oct 18th to join in on the fun.  Be sure to check out the Scrapy Land Pinterest boards for more inspiration and also see what the rest of the team has come up with this week.

Good morning, Anne! Beautiful card! The SW snowflake background is delightful against the black outline around your darling elf! Wonderful coloring. It is hard to see on line but in person does the vellum covered with glitter look different than regular card stock covered with glitter? Love your design! Hope you are feeling improved each day! XO

Loving this little elf against the black background particularly - it really makes him pop - your coloring is awesome! Great idea with the vellum for that background - really mutes the green of the mat. The bright red sentiment is very eye-catching. Super card Anne!
