Glittered sentiment


This card follows the same technique as my last card.

Cover your cardstock with double sided adhesive tape/sheet. Die-cut the sentiment, with the die on top of the side with the liner (for the double sided adhesive tape). In my case I die cut the sentiment using Zing, my electronic die cutter. While die cutting make sure that you don’t cut all the way through. In fact you just need a light enough impression that it cuts through the liner of the double sided adhesive tape.


Remove liner for C, N, R and T.  Alternate letters in “CONGRATS”


Pour purple glitter on it, burnish it with a bone folder and then clear away the excess using a painting brush with soft bristles.


Do the same for gold glitter.


And lastly with the background, silver.


After finishing all colors, pour some glossy accents on your craft sheet. Using your finger spread it over the glitter. This will seal the glitter and you wouldn’t have the recipient having glitter all over them.


Stamped the Damask background using Aged linen.


And finally add the glittered panel to the base using some foam tape.
