I don't usually make glittery cards because they are so hard to photograph, but I just couldn't resist on this one! I love the sparkle and it seems absolutely perfect for holiday cards. Of course the photos don't give this card the attention it deserves.. I really wish you could see it in person!
I started with a white cardstock A2 size card (4.25 x 5.5") and then cut a slightly smaller panel of pinkish purple from the Frosted Glitter Pad. Next I cut a slightly smaller panel of purple glitter paper from the same pad. Next I taped the Leafy Branch Oval Die in the center of the panel and die cut it. This creates an open frame that allows the bottom layer of color to show through.
Next I cut a sparkly "moon" from glitter paper with the Memory Box Circle Basics 1" diameter circle and adhered it inside the oval. You can also use a circle punch. Next I cut the frame from black cardstock and inserted it inside the opening. Due to it's uneven coated texture, glitter paper can be tricky to glue. I use Ranger Multi Matt Medium in a needle tip bottle and an acrylic stamp to hold things in place as they dry.
I inked some rosy cheeks on a sweet ghost from the Halloween Assemblage set and adhered it floating among the branches. A simple Boo Poe Script sentiment is also cut from glitter paper and adhered over the ghost.
This card is coated with sugar sweet sparkly goodness! I hope you like it and that you will join us for our challenge... with the them "Anything Goes" there's no excuse not to play! You can link up to your blog, on line gallery, or use your Instagram html address as a link! Hugs and have a great day!
