Holiday sparkle

Hello everyone :) I am still working on getting my stock of Christmas cards built up. I wonder if you can every have too many? Lol.

This was a quick and easy one layer card. Before folding my card, I scored it and then stamped the larger lights along the edge and stamped the sentiment. Then I used my copic multi-liner to draw a loopy line between the lights. Because I hadn't folded my card yet, the line continues onto the back. I colored my lights with my Tombow markers. I started by coloring half of each light with a light color and then came back with a darker color leaving a sliver of the lighter color showing. I also stamped and colored the smaller lights around the sentiment. I finished it off by using my clear spectrum noir sparkle pen on the lights.

Trying to show the sparkle :) Love it in person!

I added more lights on the inside along with a sentiment to finish off my card.

Stamps: Stampin' Up, Hero Arts - Sparkle border
Inks:Tombow markers, Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen, MFT black licorice
