Create holiday magic with the beautiful new Chandele Snowflake and layers of the Shining Star Set.  Two stars - one brushed with glitter - adhere and accent the delicate snowflake.  It's a happy day when glittering and attaching a detailed die can be accomplished in one easy step!

Hi, Jean Okimoto here with another quick-glittered design that would be great for mass-production.  Chose your favorite colors - winter pastels, jewel tones or tradtionals - or make personalized cards in the recipients' favorite holiday shades.

Cut the largest Shining Star from white cardstock.  

Attach Diecut 'n Bond  tape to white cardstock and cut the second-largest Shining Star.

Scrunch some waxed paper and rub it briskly over the Chandele Snowflake die - this helps release the little bits and pieces from the die.  Cut the snowflake from white cardstock.  Save the offcut for another beautiful project.

Attach the snowflake to the adhesive-covered star - save the tape liner.  Use the tape liner as a presscloth to secure the detailed design.  Brush ultrafine iridescent glitter over the exposed adhesive.  Press it again with the liner.

Cut ¾" x 3-½" and 4" strips of Flintstone and Easter Grass cardstock.  Cut textured pink cardstock with the 2-⅛" x 3-⅝" Pinpoint Rectangle Layers die.

Prep a scrap of white cardstock with the embossing powder tool.  Stamp the greeting - from the new Holiday Greenery Clear Stamps Set - with VersaMark.  Emboss it with detail silver powder.  Trim it with the 1" x 2" Pinpoint Rectangles Layers die.

Attach everything to a white A-6 (4-½" x 6-¼") card.  Add pink gem stickers.
