Bugaboo's Christmas Chaos - Day 4: Recipe

Happy Thursday night, crafty peeps!  I've been playing along with the Bugaboo Stamps Christmas Chaos a bit, and I wanted to get some posts up so I can get my cards linked! I have more posts coming tomorrow for DT work (2 of those), along with a Coffee Lover's Blog Hop card (that might not make it up until Saturday). It's been a busy week for crafting time but really much needed for my mental health so I'm just thrilled I had the chance to play along with so many great challenges, images, and also some fun fun work for my design teams!

Here's my take on Day #4's recipe challenge, featuring Bugaboo's Christmas Cupcake - Lights. I really love this image, it's just so adorable and fun but can still pull off a great "real" Christmas card; no problem! 
 

This card is 4x6 rather than my standard A2 size. I did that so that I could a) efficiently use this 12x12 Christmas paper and b) fit them nicely into a standard business-sized envelope for easy mailing.

Here's a close up of the card taken at an angle so you can (hopefully) see a bit better all the glitter in the enamel spots, the Jolee's Glitter Dot, the paper, and on the stars on the tree.



This card follows the recipe given for the Day 4 challenge:



I have my sentiment on the flag, my Bugaboo image (it said in the post it didn't have to be one of the new release images after all), my embellishments of Glitter Dots and epoxy spots (and glitter too), and technically 4 layers of paper.
