Glitter Zig Zags


Yesterday I shared a glitter tree card. Today? Same glitter but with chevrons. Yes, you will be seeing lots of fun techniques with this awesome glitter in the future. (And also in my A Cut Above class.) I normally am not a glitter person, but the way this looks like glitter velvet after it goes on is something I just love.

I also am just loving THESE new chevron zig zag dies from My Favorite Things. So fun…

Simple simple simple.

To create those zig zags, I covered some white cardstock with the double sided tape and then die cut it. After removing the release paper, I added glitter. To make the glitter turn velvety and stay put, I just rubbed it firmly with a bone folder. Fun, huh? Used some clear foam tape to pop them up.

HERE are the dies I used. I have a fun window card video coming up soon that will show these dies in a different way…

See you soon…

  1. love the glittery zig zaggy goodness! I have that clear foam tape on my wish list. Is there really a difference with that vs regular foam tapes and pop dots?

  2. I am doing soomething similar in design but with washi tape.

    Definitely loving the glitter – I anticipate a huge glitter revival, anytime now :)
    I have some other branded glitter, which is incredibly fine – Barbara Trombley’s – Art Glittering System!

    Thank you, Jennifer :)

    I’m not usually a glitter lover but you’ve changed my way of thinking. Loved the card yesterday and now this one…well, I think I need to get some glitter now!

  17. Sue D

    Very fun–love the glittery zig zags.

  18. Marilyn C. Lojek

    The glitter is one of my favorites to use. I am not a fan of the regular glitter because I end up wearing it as does everything in my studio. Add my vote for this being the best glitter around (burnishing it is the trick).

  19. Deepa

  21. I normally don’t like glitter, but I’m looking forward to trying this! Hugs.

  22. barbara lassiter

  23. Very fun cool technique! Those chevrons are sweet!

  24. Mary-Anne V.

    Wow the glitter really makes the zig zag to pop! Very nice.

  25. Gorgeous! Nice technique. I hadn’t thought of using the bone folder to help adhere the glitter…great idea!
