Glittered Perky Poppy

Before Christmas I watched a video done by Demo Donna at Sparkle N Sprinkle where she demonstrated the Kiss Cut Glittered Background. So I was so enthused that I purchased all the supplies needed for it but just now have found time to try it out. And, since I had a Crossover and not the machine she was using I was not sure I could get it to work, but it did a wonderful job the first try. Here is the video if you care to check it out:

As you can see I used my Crossover machine and I set the dial at 5 1/4. I also used Gina K. Designs heavy weight card stock and placed the Super Adhesive sheet over that before I cut the design of the poppy. I used my Tim Holtz tool to pick up the cut portions.

Here is a photo showing more of the glittery effect of the card design.

When I had all the glitter applied and worked into the adhesive areas I then cut it to the size I wanted and layered it with black card stock before I added it to the blue card base. I then added some blue rhinestone gems to dress it up even more. This will be a card that will work for many occasions and inside I can always add the appropriate sentiment.

Sparkle N Sprinkle glitters used are:
Black Ice G1020S
Orange Surprise G1010
Fascination G1030
Bridal G1029

The Memory Box Die I used is Perky Poppy Style No. 98762.

I am entering this in the Mod Squad Blog Challenge for this week. We were to use at least one die cut. Well, I think with all the glitter used that one die cut is all I need to make an outstanding card design.

This was a fun morning. Yes, it only took me an hour to do this and I was so surprised I got it to work that well first time out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog too and since this is New Year's Eve I wish all of you a wonderful 2016. No big plans here and it will be just hubby and me in front of the tube no doubt watching the ball drop in Times Square. That is fine with me too!

God bless,
