Just Christmas Cards Happy Mail

I opened my mailbox today and found a complimentary copy of the Just Christmas Cards and Decorations!, Vol 3 magazine.  The accompanying letter told me the above project was featured in this edition.  It's located on page 96, in the "All That Glitters" section.

SO excited to be published again!

This is how I made it:
I used the Holiday Bird rubber stamp from Sparkle N Sprinkle and colored him with Copic markers.  Blue Jewel glitter has been added to the bow and Silver Detail embossing powder was heat set onto the ornament cap and stripe.  Lavender Iris glitter was added to the star for more sparkle.  He is also pop dotted above the background.

To create the background, I started with a piece of Sticker Paper, covered it with Christmas Cheer glitter, and then cut it into three panels.  This background is really shimmery and sparkly in person. 

The Die-Versions Sweet Wordlet, Tis the Season, sentiment was die cut from a piece of cardstock that I had applied a piece of 1/2" Tear-ific Tape to and covered with Blue Jewel glitter.  This was then glued to a strip of white ribbon.
