Now onto my card.I’ve used Christmas Globe by Digi Doodle Shop and coloured it with ProMarkers.I masked the rest of the image and applied a coating of Crafter’s Companion Spray & Sparkle after placing the image in my sophisticated ‘spray booth’…well…OK… it’s a tatty old shoe box lined with kitchen towel but it does the job.This gives the impression it has just been shaken without going to the trouble of making a shaker card.I also added a touch of glitter to the poinsettia.The glitter card I’ve used sheds by the bucket load so I applied some Crafter’s Companion Spray & Shine to seal it all in.Now it can’t get away from me!I used a Punch Around the Page set on the mat the globe is set on.The panel on the front of the image is blank so I stamped a greeting on there.The big jewel on the bow is actually a push pin.I messed up when I bought 2 packs of these thinking they were brads.I just trimmed down the back with wire cutters and set it in place with silicon glue.I die cut some  snowflakes and topped the middles with gems.Hope this is sparkly enough for you!
