All That Glitters... Jems October Blog Hop for World Cardmaking Day...

Welcome to this month's Jems Team Blog Hop - featuring "All That Glitters".
Well it is the time of year for all things glitter as we prepare for our Christmas card marathons! And as it is World Cardmaking Day today - well it had to be a card from me!

So a simple little standard A6 card featuring a gold glittery Hang Your Stocking die cut stocking, a glittery Gold Bakers Twine bow and a shiny Gold Foil mat... 
Along with the shiny Gold embossing of the Christmas Pines bough and greeting... and finished off with a shiny red Mini Bell...

I was planning on gold glitter all the way with the aid of Heat & Stick and Gold Glitter... but unfortunately my Heat & Stick powder was hiding from me!! So it had to be embossing...
So that is it from me today... though do not miss my earlier post here of the Stampin Up! offers for October...

And now it is time to pass you onto Julie and her stunning creation...
Or if you are going in reverse - or have missed one - here is the link to Sarah's fantastic make...
