12 Cards of Christmas - Card 11

You can never have too much sparkle at Christmas! I've used some Glimmer Paper to make a very sparkly Christmas card:

I punched out an ornament from my Glimmer Paper, and then tinted it using ink refill and rubbing alcohol in a Spritzer bottle. You need to add quite a bit of ink refill to get a good colour intensity, and it works best with the darker colours (I used Pacific Point here). It only takes a couple of squirts, and then you set it aside to dry (I leave mine overnight). Once my blue ornament was dry, I popped it back into the space I'd punched out, and you have an ornament that looks like it's part of the Glimmer Paper.
TIP: I secured the knot using a brad. The brad holds the ribbon securely in place, and then you tie the knot over it.

    THis looks great! I'm starting to think that sparkly paper would be a good thing to have in my stash....
