Congratulations Bridget


My granddaughter, Bridget, is becoming quite the horse gal.  She's been taking lessons and recently was in her very first competition.  I know there will be many more.  I was thinking of Bridget when I ordered the trotting horse die.  I wasn't sure how I'd use the birch tree stencil, I do think both are working well together. 

It's no secret that I love glitter.  Not just love, but really really LOVE glitter.  This card has plenty.   Here's a quick note on how I did this.  I used a stencil spray on the stencil and it held it down very well.  Then I rubbed a blue ink all over the white cardstock.  Then I sponged on a liquid glue.  I removed the stencil and covered the entire piece with a transparent glitter.  Now, running to the kitchen, I washed the glue away.  I poured the extra glitter back into the bottle and set the piece aside to dry. 

Now for the trotting pony.  After diecutting, I covered the die with silver glitter.  Added a ribbon and it's now time to assemble the card.  I trimmed the stencil to 4 x 5 1/4, mounted the stenciled piece to a piece of mirror silver card stock, which was trimmed to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Now mount to a quarter fold card base.  I like this card oh yes I do!  I hope you'll give adding glitter to the stenciled piece.  It's easy, fun and if you love glitter....this is a technique for you!

Have a most wonderful day, I hope your day has time for you to play.
