Hello my friends. March was strange month for me. I just didn't had ideas how and what cards to make. Then I saw this pretty card. I loved the colorful main panel with elegant flourish. I wanted to try to make similar card with glitters. Here's the result.
Even though it is a bit to 'clean' for me I'm very happy with this card. I used lots of glitters and some embossing powders on it.
SNS Microfine Velvet Glitters are perfect for this technique. First I placed strip of 2 1/" Tear-ific tape to a white cardstock. After removing the protective sheet I started with Goldenrod Glitter in the center and moved to the edges with different glitters (see list below). To avoid rough line from one glitter to another just mix small amount of glitters together. The all the tape was covered and glitters was burnished in good I stamped big flourish from Flourishes Two stamp set with Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Detail EP. Then I cut small squares from it. To hide the white cardstock peeking from the sides I run the dark purple marker all around the sides. It also gives a nice border. Each square is adhered to a slightly larger white square.
Now you can see a close up from this cool embossed layer. One edge of white cardstock is die cut with Memory Box Cosmo Border. Entire CS is inked with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Dark Night EP. It looked fabulous already but then I added another layer of Versamark Ink and sprinkled ... hmm now I'm confused.... Directions I wrote while making the card says: Blueberry EP, but somehow it looks more like a Wisteria EP. I pretty sure I used Wisteria EP, why I wrote Blueberry I don't know. But does't it look fantastic - like a cosmos...
I had some leftover glittered pieces from the card front. They ware too pretty to throw away so I adhered them to the inside of the card.
