Don’t Let Someone Dim Your Light

Good Evening! We have a super shiny card from Becca here on the blog this evening…

Hello Friendly Friends!

Let’s talk about glitter. Basically, it’s my favorite thing in the world, and my least favorite thing all in one. There is nothing that makes a card sing more than some open sprinkles of shimmer… but it gets EVERYWHERE.

I am fairly certain my vacuum cleaner is the sparkliest and fanciest sucking machine around.

I started my design with some black cardstock and nice layer of Fossilized Amber Distress Oxides. I spritzed it with a little bit o’ water to create some dimension.

Next, I used some gold texture paste through the Strobes stencil and then pressed some loose glitter into it.

I used my heat tool gun to make the texture paste dry. I also love the way it makes the paste crack and bubble.

I stamped and embossed a lightbulb from the Shining Bright stamp set on a piece of heavyweight vellum.

I love how inspirational this set is!

I cut out the lightbulb and applied a thin layer of glue to the back, then busted out the glitter for real, pressing it into the glue.

I put all the pieces together, along with a sentiment from the same Shining Bright stamp set.

This card really shines in the sunlight! I can’t wait to give it to someone!

Thanks for popping by!

LOVE this card.. OMG just look at that glitter! And the golden texture!!!

Thanks Becca! ♡
