Elizabeth Craft Designs Dies Challenge

Hi Friends,

Today over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs' blog we are hosting a "Glitter Background" challenge. I had quite a bit of fun with this project as I haven't had much experience with glitter before. Let me tell you the burnishing (rubbing) of the glitters on the double sided adhesive it such a MAGICAL experience. Make sure to check out all the projects from the team plus all the you tube videos showing the many tutorials using our Silk Microfine Glitter.

The striped background piece was created using a 4x5" piece of 85lb Soft Finish Card Stock in white. Using Clear Double Sided Adhesive in 3mm, 6mm, & 10mm sizes. The adhesive was put down on the diagonal and were randomly spaced. The adhesive backing paper was removed from just one size at a time (3mm, 6mm, or 10mm) and Silk Microfine Glitter was added and burnished in to reveal a beautifully glitter stripe. Continue with this one size tape at a time until all 3 are dazzling. Once completed use a stitched rectangle die to finish off the edges. To see technique videos on this technique click on over to the Elizabeth Craft Designs You Tube Channel.
