Cleaning up the craft room a bit I came across some glittery card stock that I bought a couple of weeks ago and set aside. I don't remember who the manufacturer is, but it's a whole line of metallic cardstock from shiny to matte iridescent to glitter and they're gorgeous. I picked up some of the rose gold - what's not to love about rose gold? Inspired by the challenge at Inkspirational - "Add Glitter", I decided to continue with my Christmas cards. 

I bought the pale blush cardstock at the same time as the glitter paper and made a card base from it. The sentiment is from PTI's "Season's Greetings" and I heat embossed it with Zing! "Blush" - there were some chunks of embossing powder that I didn't see before using my heat gun and I couldn't scrape them off. It is what it is! The gray front panel is an iridescent cardstock from my stash and I die cut it into a smaller stitched rectangle, matted it with the rose gold glitter and some dark gray matching paper (the same stock I used for my custom envelope), and mounted all of that off-center on the card base. The snowflake was die cut from the rose gold glitter and blush iridescent cardstock (Penny Black #51-561 "Snowflake Tag"). I pulled some pale gray satin ribbon through the hole in the center of the snowflakes and tied it off in a bow and added a couple of tiny rose gold sequins. The lining of the envelope is a piece of handmade rice paper that has been knocking about my craft room since the beginning of this whole cardmaking adventure.

Here's a photo showing the glitter a bit better - no sunshine here in the northwest so everything came out a bit flat.

I think this card is also appropriate for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge, using the bottom row across - Free/Embellishment/Die Cut:
