Glitter all the Way


Well, now we enter one of the busiest times of the year.  How about we keep it joyous and fun and not worry too much about the small stuff?  With that in mind I’ve made a batch of simple, but ultra-sparkly Christmas cards.  It seems almost pointless to photograph such splendiferous sparkle because the camera and I can never capture the full spectacle, but I know you’ve seen glitter in real life so I’ll ask you to simply imagine a fantastic twinkling light show.

I’ve used one die and a snowflake embossing folder for each card.  On the first I used a lilac-pink glitter paper on shimmery white cardstock.  Slapped the die cut onto one sticky side of a Scor-tape sheet and sprinkled with clear ultra-fine glitter.  Cut to size, peeled off the back and adhered to cardstock.  The ultra-fine glitter is decidedly softer in appearance than other glitters, but still very sparkly.

The one die I used is Taylored Expressions Jingle All The Way.  There are countless dies that can be used in this manner.  In fact, while window shopping at Dies R Us I spotted quite a few I hope to make mine in the future.  Some will do the entire card front.  How easy is that when you need a lot of cards quickly?  For the cards below I cut in white and used Art Institute glitter.
