So say the Simon Says Stamp Monday Design team as they issue a challenge for July 16, 2018: Add a Little Sparkle!
For me, the best way to add sparkle is glitter, even if it does (and did) get all over me, my desk top, and the floor around me! So I pulled some coordinating WOW! glitters (well, actually, the only three WOW! glitters that I own!) and set to work.
I started by making a top-folding notecard from Neena Solar white and die-cutting an aperture in the front with the Simon Says Stamps die "Everglade Collage". I backed the opening with a sheet of double-sided tape, poured the three different glitters over the sticky area, and rubbed it down using the release paper from the tape:
- Dies: Simon Says Stamp “Everglade Collage” (S485) and Sizzix Thinlits “Shadow Script #2” (662685)
- Glitters: WOW! Sparkles “Santorini” (SPRK005), “Jade” (SPRK004) and “Seahorse” (SPRK-15)
- Papers: Neena “Solar White”; scraps of dark teal card stock and light teal glimmer card cardstock
- Adhesives: Art Accents “Terribly Tacky Tape” (24-3030) and Xyron 500 sticker maker
