Glittery Mother's Day Card

With Mother's Day not that far away I switched gears from Christmas designs and instead worked on a card for one of my daughters. A month ago I had made a stencil design with Deco Foil Transfer Gel and some of my glitter supply and so I used that as a basis for my card design. I stamped the sentiment in the upper right corner with Black Amalgam ink using a stamp from Gina K. Designs.

Next I stamped some flowers and then fussy cut them out and after that I added some loose Sparkle N Sprinkle glitters using some Connect Glue from Gina K. Designs to adhere them. I used my cutter to cut the focal stenciled design and then added the popped up flowers to that panel. I wanted to pick up a bit of the lighter color green that I had used on the stencil design so I took some white glitter paper and die cut some fronds and then with a marker added the lighter color of green. This decorated panel was then added to a white card base.

Supplies used:
Gina K. Designs-
Lisa Hendrick-Today & Always Stamp Set
Melanie Muenchinger-Fabulous Holiday Fillers
Connect Glue
Foliage Art Stencil
Black Amalgam Ink
Passionate Pink, Dandelion Yellow and Coral Reef Inks

Cheery Lynn Designs Die-
Floral Bouquet Kit

Sparkle N Sprinkle-
Variety of Glitters

Anyway, I really went all out with glitter for this card. And, once again I have a sparkly floor, skin, hair, food, etc. You name it! LOL 

Thanks so much for visiting on this cccold Spring Day. I hope we warm up again soon! After all, this is May!

God bless,

I, too, can't seem to use glitter without making a huge mess so I rarely do, but seeing your gorgeous card is tempting me! So pretty!!

Such glitter and shine on this card. That's sweet that you make it for your daughter. Lots of detail on this card. I have sworn off glitter unless it is in drops like Nuvo or Stickles or glitter paper that doesn't shed.
