Glittering Goodness

Hello everyone,

Today's card cases a technique that I saw in shop last year.  It has taken me that long to figure out how to do it.

The image is a Starform outline sticker.  It was affixed to double-sided adhesive paper and covered, piece by piece with Martha Stewart Golden Beryl, Peridot, Brownstone, Kunzite and Tourmaline glitter.  The image was layered on Stampin' Up Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  The sentiment is Close To My Heart Joyful Birthday stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.

For my first effort, this card is wonderful!  Be warned, it's a somewhat messy process.  There is glitter all over my workspace.  I also think that scale is an important point.  I originally intended to use one of my usual larger card bases but the image was too small and it got lost in all the blank space.  Once I moved to the smaller card base, the image really, really popped.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.

  1. That looks very cool but I'll bet it was terribly time consuming to do. I can't imagine the patient and steady hand it took to get the right glitters into the right slot. That said, I'm going to stick this process in my memory bank to try at some point.
