Glitter and Gold Greeting Card
Glitter craft projects look great all year round, but during the holiday season, they make a huge statement. Create a Glitter and Gold Greeting Card from Lisa Fulmer and send it to someone you love during the holiday season. The design is simple to create yet elegant.
- Aleene’s Crystal Clear Tacky Spray
- Aleene’s Glear Gel Tacky Glue
- Aleene’s Paper Glaze
- Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
- Adhesive foam squares
- Patterned card stock
- Coordinating solid colors of card stock
- Rubber stamp and multi-colored stamp pad
- Fine clear glitter
- Gold mica flakes (option: mix in a little chunky colored glitter)
- Black chisel-tip markers
- Paper trimmer and small scissors
- Large sheet of scrap paper and blue painter’s tape
- Small paint brush, pouncer, tweezers
Trim patterned card stock to 7” X 10” and fold to 5”X 7”.
Trim two coordinating solid colors of card stock for frame panels: 3-7/8” X 4-1/2” and 3-1/2” X 4”.
Trim another piece of patterned card stock to 3” X 3-7/8” for the mask card.
Stamp your image twice on to desired color card stock; allow to dry then cut out both images – one will be for the mask and the other will be your embellishment.
Use small piece of painter’s tape to adhere image to the mask card, and another piece to adhere mask card to large sheet of scrap paper.
Saturate the mask card with generous, even coverage of Tacky Spray.
Immediately cover the card with mica flakes and tap off excess (TIP: use a sheet of non-stick parchment to gently press the mica flakes into the card to ensure good adhesion) then carefully remove the image from the mask card and set aside to dry.
Use a pouncer to shade your embellishment with ink from the stamp pad as desired, then ink the edges with a black marker and allow to dry.
Paint some Clear Gel Tacky Glue and/or Paper Glaze to highlight desired areas of the inked image, sprinkle with clear glitter, tap off excess and set aside to dry.
Use Original Tacky Glue to center and adhere each frame panel to the folded card, then adhere the mica mask card on top.
Apply adhesive foam squares to the back of the glittered image and position on top of mask card, allowing some the of open space of the mask to peek out like a drop-shadow.
