Bring the Glitz & Glamour to your card makes with Glitter card

Craft Perfect Glitter Card comes in a fantastic array of different colours and is perfect for making cards as it is low shed!

When I’m using it, I tend to think of it in 3 different ways –

1. As a focal point i.e. with the glitter on the top of card with a different texture.

2. Full on glitz i.e. most of the elements are made from glitter card

3. As a background, peeping through die cut areas of card.

Whichever way you use it, it’s certain to give the wow! Factor to your cards!

I’ve made a card showing each of these ways of using Glitter Card and you can follow the steps below.

Focal Point

You will need the following:

  • panel die from the Delightful Dresser die set
  • sentiment and holly leaves from the Christmas Rose Stamp Club
  •  Welsh Gold Glitter Card
  •  Pink Chiffon Satin Effect card
  • 7x7 Craft Perfect Bright White card
  • White Gloss Crystal drops.

Step 1

Cut a piece of Pink Chiffon card measuring 16.5 cm x 16.5cm and die cut 4 of the dresser panels from Welsh Gold Glitter Card.

Step 2

Leaving a 0.5cm gap around the outside of the Pink Chiffon card, glue the first glitter panels on vertically in the bottom right corner. 

Step 3

Glue the rest of the panels on as shown.

Step 4

Die cut the sentiments from glitter card and glue onto Pink Chiffon backing plates. Attach to the centre of the card with 3D foam pads.

Step 5

Attach to the centre of the card with 3D foam pads and glue. Paper piece a Berry Fizz heart into the centre.
