Here are a few more samples of some Christmas invitations I have made.
This one has a tricky background - I laid lace on top of a rectangle of that super-sticky tape. Then I sprinkled on the gold glitter, the lace acting as a stencil. Then I removed the lace, which left all the flowers blank. Pour on the red glitter and presto! your lace pattern is reproduced in glitter! I really like texture, so for the holly leaves I used three different materials.
For the blue invitation, I cut a triangle of cardboard for the tree and then wrapped it with a chenille yarn that has silver in it. The star is made of glass and I used a silver metallic pen around the edges of it. The curve at the bottom let me experiement with a "glue pen". You just draw what you want and then add glitter - it works very well.
