Good morning and welcome to week 5 of Countdown to Christmas with Sandi & Friends!
You don't have to have many layers to a card to make it special, cute or beautiful! This week's projects is Sandi's NAPR idea (No Added Posted Required). No dimensionals are used in my sample, nothing with added weight (such as Filigree Brads or Clear Brads which you may guess is one of my favorite ways to add "bling" to a project).
Instead, this week, I use the new Dazzling Details to give this otherwise "flat" card some "shine", and also use Nothern Flurry Textured Impressions Folder to add texture.
This card again features the fun Polar Party stamp set and the masking technique was used again to show the little penquins playing in front of the holiday trees :D
You may not be able to tell well from the picture, but the Dazzling Details is added at the bottom of them, the snowy edge, but also to their hats and scarves, as wel as the decorations on the trees. Just love this stuff!
Hope you have a great week! Enjoy :D

If youwanted to step-up this card, where extra postage may then be required (LOL), you could trim this card and mat just the card front on a piece of Cherry Cobbler paper. Then add dimension by added a few cut out snowflakes or die-cut snowflakes with a rhinestone center!
