Glittery Christmas

I love this technique. It is achieved by stamping the card and then covering with Versamark, and then with SU's heat and stick powder, heat it gently until it melts and then cover with dazzling diamonds (chrystal glitter). You then need to heat it again, very gently, not for too long otherwise it will just go flat. Just enough to fix the glitter.The stamp set for both cards is Scandanavian Season and wheel from the mini catalogue which finishes at the end of September, as does the main catalogue. Hope this set comes into the main catalogue. The colours are garden green, glorious green and real red, very Christmassy.
This card was not as successful as the one above. I obviously did not ensure that I had covered the whole card with the Versmark. Nevertheless, I think you get the idea.
