Here are the 3 cards I made. There was one other Glitter, Electra, which I saved for later
This is the card I chose to do the step by step process on video (the link is at the bottom of this blog post). This technique uses the double sided tape.
You get that great glittery effect (see all the different shades and sizes?) but it doesn't move, the tape keeps it in place. I chose to add a sheet of acetate over the top of the glitter to even keep it more corralled.
There's just something about a naked inside that sets me on edge, so true to form, this is how I finished the inside of this card. Watch the video for a perfect Patti goober and how I corrected it on the front of the card.
Here's the shaker card. I have to tell you glitter and I usually have an issue and this was no exception. There's just no way around it, after all that's why it's so stinkin' pretty, it's glitter, and it's messy. I used a dry fabric dryer sheet on the acetate and then wiped away any residue that was left. I'm not sure if that's what did the trick but the glitter moves freely within the heart. I was amazed, with the way the little bits were sticking to me and everything else I could believe the little buggers just moved around as happy as could be once inside the shaker.
The other possibility is that I double layered my foam tape making a nice air space between the acetate and the card. It let all those little bits of shiny goodness move around and around.
Here's my other card, glitter directly on tape. Love the way it looks peeking from within the heart!
