Blinged out brads!

Hello everyone, how are ya? We had snow here Saturday night, it was so nice. Except for the sliding off the road into a ditch on my way home from a workshop. That part was not nice at all. Luckily the vehicle and I where find, not a scratch on it. Today I have a Christmas card for you. It's a very simple, quick one. The entire card probably took less then 10 mins. to put together including the making of the glittery brads. Make sure to check out my newsletter which will be coming out in the next couple of days to see step by step instructions on how you can make your own glitter brads with stuff you might have on hand. That way you don't have to go out and find glittery brads and then pay an arm and a leg for them.
If you don't get my email newsletter there is still time to sign up before I send it out for the month. Just add your email address over on the right hand column where it says sign up for my newsletter, it's that simple and then you will receive your copy of the newsletter right in your in box, filled with great promotions, my class schedule and a step by step picture tutorial on a new idea every month.

Isn't she purty? Don't you love the glittered brads? What else do you see in this picture? There is a sneak peek of a new item from the upcoming spring mini catalog. Any ideas on what it is.

Angela's tips
-Adding a layer of designer paper on your card, gives added interest to the card and cuts down on time when making a card.
-Using our Stampin Up markers on a stamp gives you the opportunity to add more character to your stamped image and makes it more elaborate looking.
-Using brads on a card where you have some extra space makes the card look more complete.
- Ribbon also can also take up some of that extra space and makes your card looked more detailed and complete. (look for a ribbon share starting in January, hint, hint)
