Rainbow? Glitter? Die cut? Yes, please! After covering cardstock with super-strong Be Creative Tape, I die-cut the new “happy” die from Winnie and Walter and added lots of fine glitter from Elizabeth Crafts. By overlapping the colors, I was able to get a blended look. I like to use this glitter because when it’s burnished well, it doesn’t rub over and feels silky smooth.
Be sure to check out the video to see how I modified my dotted-edge-rectangle die cut from Winnie and Walter to be smaller. Works like a charm! I also used a fun technique to create a glittered halo affect around the word. I temporarily taped the die upside-down on the white rectangle and applied VersaMark around it. I then sprinkled some clear glitter powder on top and heat embossed it. The result is so beautiful in real life – a lovely halo.
I cut the same word from some fun foam and adhered it behind the glittered word for some dimension… and added a background of DCWV glitter paper. I finished off the card by stamping a sentiment on to a strip cardstock using Winnie and Walter’s The Party stamp set and Lawn Fawn’s Hippo ink.
I know some of you are not a fan of glitter. However, I encourage you to give this a try because using Swiffer dusting cloths for easy clean up is a game changer!
