Hello - just a fun glittery card

Saturday July 23, 2016
I have a fun card to share with you.. My friend Karen and I went to a Scrapbook Expo event a couple weekends ago and its not just scrapbook but card making also.. We found at one of the booths this awesome tape called Bazic double sided tape.. It's nice and thin so we both got the special deal of the day so believe me we have enough tape to last a life time and then some.. I took some strips of tape and added all across a 4.5 x 5.5 piece of white paper. Then broke out my Art institute glitter (oh man those are ancient and hardly a dent in the bottles and I have used them a lot over the years) and just added four different colors in sections.. When I was happy with the look.. and lucky for me it was the first time because that glitter is not going anywhere.. I burnished it down.  Then I just let it be for a few days until I figured out what to do.. Well I saw a video from Jennifer McGuire 5 ways to use background dies..   My answer was in that video.. so I took out a Lil inker overall die.. die cut the glitter piece and while it was all still in the die I turned it over and added 89 pieces of foam tape to all of these pieces. Then I took a piece of sparkly black paper and laid it on the back of the die piece /foam and carefully pulled the black/glitter pieces off.. So these are all raised. The photo below kind a gives you the side profile so you can see it raised.. Now how was I going to get the Hello to stick.. glue and glitter don't mix when you are trying to adhere a sentiment.. so I thought ok double sided tape again. I added it to the back of the pink card stock and die cut the hello and pealed off the tape backing and it's stuck like glue.. here I stared singing the song.. by Sugarland.. Stuck like glue... LOL

side profile so you can see the raised pieces..

Billie, First, this is beautiful....I've been tempted many times to buy this image. Now I see you use it and I still want it...haha Second, I've been to beach and back, cleaning my craft room, which isn't quite finished but now I can make some cards so I appreciate you sticking with me and visiting and leaving comments. I'm leaving again, next Tuesday for 10 days but once I'm back, I won't be going for a long time.

This is so gorgeous and stylish. The glitter is wonderful and it was so worth adding the 89 bits of foam tape lol!!!! I hope someone special is going to receive this.
Thanks for sharing with Simply Create Too and I hope you will join us again soon.

WOWEEE!! Indeed, you've mastered this technique. I don't know about sending it. I think you need to hang onto it for a while and just sit back to admire it. You can see right away you invested time, work and love into it. I too have hoarded that glitter for longer than I care to admit.
So, thanks for playing along with the Simply Create Too DT in our challenge no. 114, Lots of Sparkle. Join again soon.
