Clean & Simple Christmas..

A clean & simple Squiggle creation today :)
I printed out the gorgeous digi image 'Skating with Gifts' a little larger than usual!
And as my card is only 5" x 5" there was'nt much room for embellishments :) So I have kept it simple by adding a mat and embossing some lines around the image using my score board.
To make it a little more special I have covered the image with glitter!! Any excuse :)
To achieve this I have used Stampin Up's Heat & Stick powder. After colouring the image I covered it with versamark ink then added the heat & stick powder. I heated this up with my heat gun to make it sticky before completely covering in fine glitter and heating again to make it set! I had glitter everywhere!!
The photos dont really do justice to how sparkly the card is when it catches the light!
I love this cute Skating Girl and she is also available in rubber too {HERE} and if you want to make a head start on all your Christmas cards,

I am entering my card into the 'Christmas' challenge over at 'A Spoonfull of Sugar'...

Thanks for looking xx
