Another Christmas Card Done!

 I just received an Altenew stamps and matching dies and had to use them.  They were much larger than I expected and so I made a slimline card to fit the cabin and the kids sledding.  However, I had some issues with my glue.  I was adding my white Nuvo drops and also had my glue out beside it, using my glue when I thought I needed a piece to stay flat... and OOPS.  As I was spreading what I thought was Nuvo drops all OVER the white snow, I realized too late that indeed, it was GLUE.  I picked up the Nuvo and tried covering where I thought the glue had gone, but there were many sticky places.  I solved the problem Elizabeth Craft Designs Warm Diamond Glitter.  I figured if it stuck, it covered the glue.   

I know you can see the places I used Copic markers to sort of blend in the sky and images, but it's not as apparent in real life.   I'm still happy with this card.  I had other issues with cutting the main panel too small for the frame, so I'm just glad it's all in one piece.
