DCWV & Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Winter Blog Hop!

Hi there,

Welcome to the DCWV and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Winter blog hop! Dec 8th  through the 12th, both blogs will be sharing fun winter projects featuring products from both companies! Visit both blogs each day for an opportunity to win lots of fabulous prizes!

Today it's my turn and I created this Holiday card using DCWV  and Faber Castell. Take a peek at my tutorial below.


  • Winter Stack
  • Winter Tag Stack
  • Corrugate Neutrals Stack
  • A2 Bright Burlap Card
Faber Castell:
  • Glass Bead Glitter Gel
Cosmetic Sponge
Glue Gun
Adhesive: Xyron


Step 1: Apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel using cosmetic sponge to corrugated board. The gel glides on white, but dries clear. The result is a glittery and snowy effect.
Step 2: Apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to patterned paper and adhere paper to corrugated board.
Step 3: Apply Glass Bead Glitter Gel to die cuts and all card layers. Set aside.
Step 4: Layer patterned paper and burlap paper together.
Step 5: Adhere layered paper to the corrugated board and add ribbon using adhesive dots.
Step 6: Using hot glue, adhere snowflake and sentiment.
Step 7: Add ribbon and additional sentiment. Continue embellishing as desired.

Thanks so much for visiting today...:)

Hugs, Karen
