Sugar Coated Background

Card Made Years Ago
Couldn't pass up making a card for one PTI Stamp-A-Faire challenge after work.  I was so happy to see Betsy's video for the Sugar Coated Background--something out of my past. In fact, here's the card I made in one of my first stamping classes many years ago.  It was simple & the effect was magical to me.


For my challenge card I used PTI Snowflake Flurries & stamped the images with shades of blue & lavender.  I used my Kewl tool to pounce a little of the lavender ink on the sentiment panel.  Now if I could just figure out how to photograph glitter!  It really is such a gorgeous effect in person.

Time for a movie with hubby, but I'll catch up with all of you soon. Wishing you a great week.

Edited To Add: I'm entering this card in the Holiday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

  1. The word, "magical" is perfect for this technique and I love that you shared the card you made years ago, as well as the one for today - both so pretty, Greta!

  2. Hello Dear Greta!
    Both are wonderful but I do love the second one for its more modern look...
    I wish I could have followed the StampaFaire. I seem to miss it every August since we usually take 10 days off at the end of the month.
