Fancier but Still Simple
Glitter without Glue--Packing Tape Method, Take 2

Glitter without Glue--it's called the Packing Tape Method.

I love sparkle on my cards (big surprise, right?) so today I'm going to show you how to get that spectacular Glitter without Glue --it's called the Packing Tape Method. Take a look at this card: Floral

Here's a close up of the glitter Close floral
--do you know it's really hard to capture that sparkle of glitter in a photo? Trust me. LOL

This method of applying glitter is really easy, limited mess, & no glue--now that should please some of you greatly!

Here's how to do it:

1. Cut Night of Navy cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score the long side at 4 1/4"(card base)

2. Cut Floral Boutique designer series paper 4 3/8 X 4 1/4, adhere to middle of the card base front using multipurpose liquid glue.

3. Cut Whisper White cardstock 4 3/4 X 3 1/2, center over the DSP and adhere with liquid glue

4. Cut Navy cardstock 4 5/8 X 3 3/8, adhere to white cardstock with liquid glue.

5. Cut the small rose (Rose Garden Thinlet Dies) from Whipser White cardstock using the Precision Base plate & when you remove it from the Big Shot, use the Die Brush to remove the waste pieces before you remove the thinlet from the cardstock. (Big Shot sandwich, Magnetic base plate, Precision base plate, cardstock, die, standard cutting pad).

6. Turn rose to back side & adhere packing tape (I used Scotch brand because it is very substantial), cut around the rose outline with Paper Snips (Item #103579) discarding the excess tape. Don't touch the sticky side of the tape excessively to keep it very sticky. Turn to the sticky side and sprinkle liberally with Gold Glitter. Shake off excess. Using liquid glue adhere the flower to the top of the card front.

7. Stamp Happy Birthday (Rose Wonder stamp set) in Night of Navy Ink, using the label framelit (Rose Garden thinlets) cut out with the Big Shot (use above sandwich); adhere to lower card front with liquid glue.

Your card is completed---isn't it just the prettiest?

Now I have a confession, the Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper is out of I would recommend substituting Island Indigo cardstock (#122923) and ink (#126986) and the Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper (#141654) for an equally lovely card. In fact, try your own choice of designer paper and cardstock--send me a picture and I'll post it right here with your credit--I'd love to see what you make!
