TTIC #11 A Very Cullen Christmas

It's Tuesday and I'm excited...how can that be? Reason #1 - it's a snow day! No school, so we don't have to leave the house (or even get out of our pjs). Reason #2 - it is time for a Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge. The what challenge, you say? Well...Tonya from Stamp Happens has an AWESOME challenge every Tuesday called the Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge (and she even has an awesome DT to go along with it!). As most of you know I am sort of a late bloomer when it comes to Twilight but late bloomer or not I am totally in love with this series of books and Edward Cullen. I first came to know of TTIC from one of my stamping/blogging friends Rebecca. I had been reading her blog for a while and was always intrigued by her Twilight projects. I finally decided to read the book to see what all the to-do was about. OMG...or should I say OME (Oh My Edward!)....I LOVED the books! Actually LOVED is a bit of an understatement...I read 4 books (and saw the movie twice) in less than a week. All I can say is THANK YOU REBECCA!!!
This week the challenge is "A Very Cullen Christmas". Before I say anything else I want to say that this card looks MUCH better in real life than it does in the photo. I took over 50 photos with and without flash and the glittered paper just doesn't photograph well.
For my Cullen inspired Chirstmas card I went with Elegant and well...Sparkly, of coarse!
I just bought this glittered paper at Target yesterday and thought this would be the perfect project for it. I embossed the red glitter paper with the Cuttlebug and then sanded it a little so the embossed pattern was a little more recognizable. It is really a shame that I can't get a good photo. I was really happy with how this turned out. Supplies used: Stamp from DRS Designs, SU CS, Glittered paper, Dress It Up glitter dots, white embossing powder, foam dimensionals, Nestibilities, misc. satin ribbon.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!
