Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Today I have two card to share. This one is for The Color Throwdown challenge when I am honored to be a guest designer for the July. This week palette is vibrant and sparkling – purple, pink, black, sparkle.
I didn’t think long to get started with card. Sparkles for me – it’s a glitter. I just love doing glitter card with Cricut shapes and two sided adhesive. Firstly, I chose a shape from the Damask Decor Cartridge, set the size and cut with Cricut Explore.
Then to be sure everything is going to be in the right place I put the base into MISTI tool and positioned the cut shape.
After that I pilled one side of the cut and adhered it to the base.
And chose the colours of glitter. I went with Martha Stewart fine glitter – graphite, amethyst and purple spinel – darkest for the middle and lighter to the end of the image.
Next goes the most tricky part. I started from pilling off some of the part of image to glitter it.
I moved from the outside to the center, pilling part by part the image and applying glitter.
And here is the end result.
To finish my card off I just added sentiment with Memento Black ink and Clearly Besotted sentiment, and adhered the glittered panel with 3D foam tape to the base.
