Hello, Gaylynn here. For Technique Time, I share a glitz glitter slim card with succulents using stamping, stenciling and different color mediums.
Making a glitz glitter slim card background with sparkle pairs nicely with the succulent stamping.
Sentiment: Grow, bloom, thrive always.
Here are helpful tips to create this glitz glitter slim card. To begin, pre-trim the card base and all of the card layers. Die-cuts were used here, but are not necessary. Next, stamp, color and cut out (fussy cut) the succulent potted plants and the sentiment. Then, add ink blending of choice to the bottom front panel. Next, add a thin layer of glitz glitter gel along with a stencil and a spatula in random sections where you want background interest. Then, allow the gel to dry at least 30 minutes. Finally, assemble the card front, to finish.
Card base cut approximately 9″ x 7 1/2″
Card front approximately 9″ x 3 3/4″
Envelope #9 or #10
