Sparkling Horse Card

I made this cute glittery card for a horse lovin' little girl that will be turning eight soon.  All the cuts are from Create a Critter, the horse is 3 1/2" and the star is 3".  The background paper from DCWV's Glitter stack, the rest of the card is scraps but I know that the white glitter paper (the star) is also from a DCWV pack.

I always accent CAC cuts by adding a little shine to their eyes with my white gel pen. The horse is attached with pop dots.

My ADORABLE sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's. As you can see, the glitter paper is difficult to stamp onto but I think it really is worth the effort. I separated (I covered the half I didn't want to stamp with some scotch tape, applied ink, then removed the tape and stamped) the sentiment and stamped it onto two lines.

I used scraps to create this cute little pocket on the inside of the card.  Like the front, I added some gel pen stitching around the brown mat.

I love the shape of this card, Cheryl, and the great pocket for the gift card. Your little horse is just too cute, and the glittery star for the sentiment is great. Wonderful card!
