I've been anxious to use a bunch of glitter on one of the Valentine projects and came up with a fun (and quick!) card project here in the studio! I am using the La Rue Heart die, packing tape and some Martha Stewart Glitter to create a beautiful ombre effect. Watch the video to see how! (Bonus - my kids, Emma and Cooper, created a new opening soundtrack for my videos this week! Look what can happen when school is cancelled for a week in Seattle because of a snowstorm!):
I mention in the video that you could use double stick adhesive sheets instead of packing tape (they are more sticky and the glitter will adhere a little better) - but as you can see the tape will work! I used the popular 98255 La Rue Heart die:
...all of the swirls and loops create a delicate pattern, and surrounding it with some beautiful glitter...
...will create an amazing look. I used a deep pink Tourmaline color with a Sterling Silver - I love how they look with each other!
By slightly overlapping the Tourmaline and Sterling Silver colors, you can create an ombre effect - it's so eyecatching! I used two colors - but try 3 or more colors!
Here's a close up of the overlap - all of the glitter crystals run together beautifully. And the sparkle is amazing!
