My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Seas and Greetings

Hi Everyone,

It's been a while since I really got my sparkle on, so I thought what better time than the holidays to glitter up some cards :)  

Blue and white are always a nautical color combo, so I began by stamping my navy background with the Splatter Background stamp. After stamping with white ink, I took a sponge and just smeared and softened the spots so that they wouldn't look so defined.  I placed an embossed seashell strip along the bottom and lined the sides with double sided tape and glitter.  

I then stamped and heat embossed the Seashell Christmas Tree and the new Seas and Greetings sentiment, fussy cutting the tree and die cutting the greeting.  

I die cut and added some glitter embellished mats for my greeting and then assembled the card, finishing it off with a gemstone flourish from my stash.

While we don't have any glittery sand where I live, we do have lots of the glittery white stuff...(I'd take the sand and shells any day!) 

Here's hoping your season is shaping up to be swell!
