Glitter & Glitz Birthday Card
Hello. I’m back again with another Glitz Design Challenge entry – I wasn’t going to enter more this month, but then last week’s theme was glitter! Regular readers will know I couldn’t possibly resist such a theme!
I made a card this time to change it up a bit, and because I have totally run out of Birthday cards so I need to stock up…
Glitter & Glitz Birthday Card:
I used the new 77 collection again (like I did on my New Haircuts Layout), choosing some of the bolder coloured papers from the 6×6 pad for this card. I really liked the orange colour in the geometric pattern, so I found a similar glitter (American Crafts ‘Carrot’ Fine Glitter).
I used a small old paintbrush to rub some PVA glue (you could also use Mod Podge) along the edges of a 77 giant rhinestone, and the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment which I’d stamped onto white card. Then I placed them both on an old cookie cooling rack, with a piece of paper below it, and threw on a ton of glitter:
Then I left them to dry over night before shaking off the excess glitter (you can’t see much glitter on the piece of paper above because I had to move it to photograph it).
These were nice and sparkly, but I also added dots of Crystal Stickles around the edge of the ‘Oh Baby It’s A Wild World’ card – you can just about see them in the photos but they give a nice subtle glisten in real life. I also stitched some twinkly gold embroidery thread down the centre of the geometric pattern on the left, and added a few shiny sequins:
What do you think, just enough glitter?
I hope you have a sparkly weekend!
