Welcome to our FABULOUS "12 Days of Christmas" Card Challenge, 2014! Each year we have more and more gorgeous entries, loads of inspiration for all of you holiday card makers, and 12 AMAZING winners at the end!

Here's how YOU can participate in the merriment!

- Upload your project photo (using the inlinkz link provided on the day's post.)
- Let us know which day your entry is for in the title! (Ex: Sharon- Day 1-Glitter)
- You can enter as many times as you wish by December 8th at 23:55 ET!
Sparkling, luminous glitter! What could be more perfect for our featured product to kick this off? Choose any of Finnabair's new gorgeous Glass Glitters, color-filled Glitter Sets, or finely granulated Art Sugars, to show off on your card or tag. Need some dazzling inspiration?
"The new Art Ingredients' glitters are just stunning! I wanted to create a project which showcased how versatile they are; using them to add a gorgeous shimmer to flowers, embellishments and backgrounds. Create the same look by spraying adhesive on a blank card, then sprinkling glitter on top. (Brush away the excess.) The glass glitter is a personal favourite that is perfect for adding texture to projects and reviving old embellishments." ~Fran

Adrienne kicked things up a notch on her Christmas card by adding glitter to a variety of flowers and leaves, making this a very festive design! Simply dab matte gel on flower edges (or leaves), then sprinkle with glitter. Tap off excess and let dry. The gel will REALLY grab a hold of the glitter for fab results.

Sometimes you just want one amazing focal point on a card...and what a wondrous way Cari achieved that on her gorgeous card! Adhere glass glitter to the inside of a Mechanical Flower with matte gel. Let dry, then embellish with a frosty snowflake and glimmery pearl center. You can also brush gel on leaves and sprinkle with glitter sets, or art sugar, for fine results!
