Sparkly Card Making

I am a sucker for sparkly things, so you can imagine how much I LOVE glitter?  I think it adds such a pretty touch to everything.  Stamps are great as is…but adding some glitter makes them amazing to look at!  Of course it’s best when seen in person, so that might be an incentive to send off those glittered cards to loved ones.  Who can’t use a little sparkle in their day?

I chose a simple butterfly image to make a statement on my card.  Glitter was all that needed to make the image POP!

Gather some supplies and add glitter to those stamped images.  

Color a stamped image with a glue pen as if you were coloring the image with any pen.  The glue will be light blue to start but it will become clear when it’s dry.  Just sprinkle glitter over the image, tap off excess and you will reveal a gorgeous look!

Use multiple colors for added interest.  Just keep the layers separate so that the glitter doesn’t bleed into the others.  Make sure to allow the glitter to dry before mailing.

When designing my card, I chose to add some extra texture by tearing the bottom of my paper and adding a chunky bow.  In this case, less is definitly more.
