More Glitter and More Blues!

Well, it seems I am hooked on using dies and adding glitter to them. And, once again, I went with the blues in my card. I hope I won't bore you too much with some of the same old things.


I have all of this glitter in my supply and just thought since I am no longer afraid to use it for sending cards to the soldiers through Operation Write Home I would try and use up some of what I have on hand. The OWH program was discontinued when the soldiers were withdrawn from the fighting areas.

So this is again using the Kiss Cut Technique which involves a die, sticker paper and glitters. You also need a pick or tool to pick up the various portions of the cut design. I have previous posts which give more details on how to use this technique. Check them out as they are the ones showing the Kiss Cut Glittering label. Oh, and I used a craft knife to separate the flowers from the stems so that I could get different colors on those areas.

I used the following glitters from Sparkle N Sprinkle:
Meadow Spark G1014
Fascination G1030
Bridal G1029
Sunny Daze G1038

The Die-Namite die I used is called "Beautiful Flowers" DN-1147. And the sentiment is one I have had for a long time and it is wood mounted and unknown to me. I do love it though!

After I had layered the glittered flower panel to the darker green I then placed it on a base card of white shimmery card stock from Stampin' Up! The card was finished by adding a double bow ribbon of ombre blues and some blue gems of various sizes.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Mod Squad Blog Challenge
Scrapy Land Challenge
Double D's Challenge

Well, the snow is falling and the winds are picking up and bringing in a cold front. So if this is affecting you too, I hope you are safe and warm. Everyone have a great weekend.

God bless,
Verna

What a sparkly blue card, just as you title states. So very cheery and I love the ombre ribbon. I would love to use glitter, but since i am not in my own house, it will have to wait until April. Lol
