Glitter Trees


Today I have a simple card using the newest Paper Smooches set, Spring Groves. Such a fun set. (It was just released today – you can get it HERE.)

For the trees, I used what I call the “good glitter.” This glitter goes on well and stays put – definitely better than opening a card and having glitter everywhere…

To do the trees, I put strips of the two-sided tape (see thumbnails below for links) on white cardstock. I then removed the release tape and added green Glitter Ritz. Using my thumbnail, I burnished it on, pressing it into the adhesive. This glitter is so fine and high quality that it gives a velvety look after doing this… and stays put. I then stamped the tree tops onto the glitter with Staz-On. I did the same process for the brown trunks. It is so eye-catching in real life – I highly recommend trying it.

I will be using this more in the future and sharing here. And I show it is action in the A Cut Above class that starts on Monday the 16th.

Speaking of which…

Just a reminder that our newest online class starts tomorrow – A Cut Above. It is all about die cutting and is overflowing with information. For more information, head over to HERE.

  4. Amazing card. I love it!

  5. The “good” glitter! I love it. That expression made me laugh. It’s like the good china, you break it out for special occasions. I have been getting rid of my B-list glitter though. Once I’d tried the good stuff, the not-so-good stuff just frustrates me, even though it looks so pretty in its bottles. I’ve recently gotten hooked on Art Institute Glitter, which is like the really good china, not the wedding china, but the inherited from great-grandmother china. :-)
