More Playing With Glitter

Like I described on my previous post, I'm just hooked on micro fine glitter, after my encounter with the Burnished Velvet Technique.  I used different colored glitters, and some of my punches, in order to use the glitter differently on these cards. 
On this first card I used a Fiscars heart punch, as well as a postage border punch of the same brand. Love the little glitter accents. I apologize for the lighting on the pictures, but with the changing weather around here lately, it's been hard to take a decent picture, plus my lovely daughter broke my home-made light box, and I haven't had a chance to fix it yet.

 On this next one, I wanted a more masculine card, and I made a glitter striped pattern.

On this last card I used the same two punches as on the first card on this post, but added a few more colors of glitter for a little variation and a different look.

 Can you see how flat the glitter lays flat, and how it does not overpower the whole card? And let me tell you that's a lot of glitter there!
I enjoyed working on these cards, their simplicity, and their glittery touches make me happy. The Uncommon Collection by Authentique, which is the one I use for all these cards, was just great for Valentine's Day, and the labels die set from My Favorite Things which I used on all the sentiment pieces of these cards, is one of my favorites at the moment. What do you think of glitter now?

  8. I've never been a fan of glitter, but I do love these cards. I think I'm still stuck on the old school glitter that's huge & gets on everything.

  23. Sharon, they are soooooooo gorgeous! I love them all. Who would have "thunk" that you could include so much glitter on a masculine card but it totally rocks!

  24. I must say, these glitter cards are awesome!! I like that you didn't have to use a copic colored image to make a great-looking card. I gotta go back to basics and use cardstock, glitter and ribbon. LOVE IT!!

    TFS.
