Glitter semi tutorial

The card with the gorgeous coloured heart done in glitter is one from the Edmonton regional. I fell in love with it. I probably have about 8 pictures of this card on my camera. I did not make the card with the heart, I repeat I did not make the card with the heart, isn't it hot though. The cards with the flowers done in glitter is the one I made. It is so easy, I will tell you how to do it and then give the supplies for my card. Roger that?

Take SU's sticky cuts, letters or "sweet" OR in just the sheet of sticky cuts pages, did you know you could get ones that you can make your own, just think of all the possibilities with punches and the sheet of sticky cuts...I'm in heaven.

Step 1
Take a sticky cut, I choose 3 flowers from the SU sticky cuts "Sweet". I just peeled one side off of the sticky cuts and adhered to the whisper white paper, then a took my hobby knife and on the sticky cuts, cut it into 3 pieces. (the heart card would have cut theirs 6 times).

***you will end up cutting through your paper, don't worry about it. It is best to the cutting on a cutting mat, before you put your card together.

Step 2

I peeled off one section of my sticky cut and dumped Fine Cosmo glitter on it, then the next flower etc. Pat the glitter down to get it to adhere even better. Work with only 1 colour at a time.

Step 3

Peel away the middle section of the flower and using a different coloured glitter, adhere to sticky cut. You can do this as many times as you want.

Flowers are from Sticky Cuts Sweet on Whisper White paper matted with Pumpkin Pie
