A Quick tutorial on how to make your background sparkle!

To make a card like mine shown below you will need:
Double sided tape- I used Sookwang tape about 4" wide
 Fine Glitter- Martha Stewart works great
Die cuts- I used Spellbinders

Cut a piece of double sided tape 4 x 4 attach to front of your card.  Pull off the top paper in one piece to use for your masking.  i didn't have a large enough circle to cut using my spellbinders so i folded the paper in half twice and cut it out on the folds to make a large circle.




 Now i need another circle within the large circle.  I cut it out using my cuttlebug and smaller spellbinders circle. Place the circles back on top of your double sided tape.  Exposing only the edges of the square.. ***Really important..make sure that your paper edges are really secure by pushing them down really well***  Add your first color.
My first color is "aqua blue" .  You are adding the glitter just like you would embossing powder (taping off the excess), but instead of heating it up you just press it down.  It is called "burnishing"  It is a rubbing motion with your fingers..it will give a bit more sheen. Take off the outer circle and add your next color.

My color is yellow..again tap it off and burnish it.  I made the mistake of not pressing my edges down well and you can see the blue showing at the top of my last color i did....Not to worry in my case because the hair from my angel covered it up. :)  I am using a sketch from Kathy's Waffle Sketch file.

 Thanks for looking.  Grandma Bonnie

How would you like a card step by step tutorial?

Hi, this is Grandma Bonnie, I thought i might share a step by step process of making a card base.  I am using a current sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy found here.

This is the finished card:
These are the supplies needed:
4 x 6 card base
Pink mat 3 7/8 x 5 7/8
Yellow background 3 3/4 x 5 3/4
Pink mat 4 7/8 x 1 3/8
Blue pattern strip 4 3/4 x 1 1/4
Pink pattern strip 4 1/2 x 1/2
Aqua mat 2 x 1 3/4
Pink pattern paper 1 7/8 x 1 5/8
White paper for border 2 x 5 3/4*
* Cut down after punched to 3/8 x 5 3/4
See picture below

Now the step by step by viewing the pictures:
Mat your yellow background paper on the pink mat, the blue strip pattern paper on the pink strip mat and the pink pattern paper on the aqua mat as shown:
Now place all the pieces on the matted yellow background as shown, i add the completed background piece once i've add all of the pieces, then i attach all of it to the card base. (some times i want to add ribbon so that is why i wait to attach it to the card base)
Step 1
Step 2






Step 4






 

Step 5






hope you enjoyed..Any questions, please leave a comment.  Thanks!
