Winter Cards filled with gems

Time and time again I reach for gradient gem stickers, vintage jewels and other sparkly items in my Creative Charms stash to make my cards shine.  A simple design embellished with gems is always impressive and very easy to create.

Both of these cards are made with cuts from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The round card has 23 red gradient gems stickers in two shades of red and all three sizes.

The smallest green gradient gem stickers decorate the scalloped front of this card...

...with tiny red gradient gem stickers accenting the sentiment.

This Winter card features one of my original snowflake designs enhanced with blue and white gradient gem stickers and a round clear vintage jewel.

The "winter" word is from the Seasonal Sparkles Stickers - Winter Words and Bling.  This set also contains snowflakes and stars and is available on a buy one, get one free special right now on the Creative Charms website.

If you'd like more details and directions for making these cards, please visit my personal blog, Capadia Designs.

Have a wonderful sparkly day!
