Start by inking up your favorite Northwoods Stamp with Art Glitter Very Black ink.
Press evenly onto cardstock. Tip- do not "rock" the application when you press down, you may get a double edge image and not a clear crisp press. 

Next Lynette used a fine tip metal tip and dries clear adhesive  to get glitter into the fine detailed art in the image. She choose 3 different colors of green Art Glitter shades. Emerald #48 for depth,  Lime Rind #280 for highlights, & Rain Forest #167 for the darker leaves. 

Lynette used micro tipped scissors to get a close cut, but you may use an Excel Hobby Blade to get the cleanest sharpest custom trimming. Then she continued to fill in the stamped image wreath making it full and lavish. She chose Art Glitter True Red #1 for the beautiful Northwoods holiday bow and embellished with rhinestones to look like ornaments. 

Lynette chose a simple country stripe in a sage green so that the wreath would be the focus and created an interesting collage of sponging of water and acrylics paints to match the undertones in the wreath's Art Glitter shades.  

What a joyful holiday it will be receiving this glittered Northwoods card!
