Snow and Glitter

Another challenge this month from my card making class was to make a glitter window. This technique uses packing tape, of all things!! There is a great tutorial on SCS that you can check out HERE! It is another tutorial written by the queen of tutorials Beate Johns!! I took the new Soft Sky color (which I am really enjoying!!) and stamped the Flannel Plaid background using Soft Sky ink. Then I cut out a circle using my coluzzle. Next, I turned the cardstock upside down and put a piece of packing tape on the back so that the sticky side was pointing out. Next, I poured some dazzling diamonds on the sticky side of the tape and rubbed it in. On the back on the card front, I added a piece of what cardstock that was stamped with snowflakes using buckaroo blue. You can see them through the glittery tape. Along the top of the card, I added a strip of white cardstock that I had stamped with the same snowflakes using Soft Sky this time. I cut the bottom with my scallop scissors (mmmm, I'm using them a lot lately), and then tied some silver cord around it and tied a knot. To finish off the front, I did some paper piercing around the glitter circle and then placed it on a white card base using dimensionals. Ahhh, Another card without a sentiment. Why do I keep doing that??!! Thanks for visiting.

This card is beautiful. I make a lot of cards without sentiments. I like them better that way. Love the sparkle on this card, and the fibers - very nice balance!
