I got my Cricut fired up and logged in to use our Season of Joy collection for my card. I love the look of this card and it features a lot of paper layering. Each different layer was cut in it's own color and then put together to make the scene. I used some foam tape between the light blue and white glitter layers for two reasons. First, it's hard to get things to stick to glitter paper so foam tape is a perfect option. Second, it gives a bit more dimension too the overall look that's hard to see in the photo. After I had the pieces layers and on the card I didn't care for the white surrounding the scene. I got out my Sapphire Shimmer Brush and painted around the layers giving the edges around the card a nice blue shimmer. I also added some clear shimmer around the sentiment and stars along with a few sparkles, too.
