Merry Merry Holidays SCT friends!  As soon as our Christmas tree goes up and the twinkling lights are turned on, my heart is filled joy and I turn my radio to a station that plays Christmas music 24/7 and the countdown to Christmas officially begins!

I love adding a little shine to my Christmas cards and I have a few fun ways to share with you. Some supplies I have gathered here are clear silver rimmed envelope seals, Silhouette vinyl and some cute Doodlebug shape sprinkles.

Have you tried using vinyl instead of card stock for very intricate files or thin fonts?  The vinyl cuts beautifully through your digital cutter and because the vinyl is self adhesive all you need is some transfer paper and voila, you can apply a gorgeous title or sentiment to your pages and cards!  I love that the vinyl sentiment has a smooth sheen to it.  I used a few clear envelope seals to create a fun background and is a great way to highlight some cute shape sprinkles!

Hope this inspires you to add a little shine to your crafting!  Wishing you and your family a warm and merry Holiday season!” ~ Virginia

Thank you Virginia for such a sweet card and some great ideas!
