Add Some Sparkle WOW

Hi all and welcome to another week of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week's challenge theme is to Add Some Sparkle!

We are showcasing WOW products. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see what you make! As always just for entering you will be eligible for the the drawing of a $25 voucher to the Simon store!
Tis' the season to add some sparkle! Whatever your project is, adding some sparkle with make it special! Nothing says sparkle like a shaker card. I have made a larger square card today. I made the background using a stencil, dye ink and embossing powder with some sparkle. I loved it so much that I just couldn't cut it down to fit a regular A2 size card base. So I chose to make a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" card. I cut the background down to 5"x5" to fit on the card base.
I made the card base from smooth white cardstock. Using a heavy weight cardstock I placed the Scattered Snowflake stencil over the paper using some Pixie spray to keep this delicate stencil in place. I then used the SurfSunbeam and Bubblegum Pawsitively Saturated ink to blend over the stencil. I then wiped the excess ink off the stencil and then placed it back over the background and added a sticky watermark ink over the whole area. I pulled up the stencil and sprinkled on the WOW clear embossing glitter and heat set that. The results were glorious!
I then die cut the Merry and Bright sentiment out of white cardstock 3 times to glue together for thickness. I used the outline die that comes with this sentiment to make my shaker window. I trimmed down the background and then adhered a piece of acetate to the back of the window. I also added foam adhesive to pop it up so I could add the shaker bits. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the Christmas Blessings stamp set and heat set that using some silver embossing powder and trimmed it down to a strip. 

I just love this week's theme. I hope you have enjoyed the project I made and got some inspiration. I have listed and linked all the supplies I used for your convenience. Thank you for stopping by and happy holidays!!
