Hi, Gaylynn here. For Technique Time, I am showing a sparkly handmade card. This tutorial will show one way to make a glitter frame filled with stars. It also incorporates a starry sky background.
This glitter frame card can be used for Christmas or holiday greetings or as a birthday, graduation or celebration card for any time.
Here are helpful tips for creating this glitter frame card. To begin, die-cut or trim a background panel and make a frame for it. Next, stamp the star onto cardstock and add color with Copic markers or your coloring of choice. Also, fussy cut the star. Then, stamp and heat emboss the sentiment in white. Also, add ink blending in darker blue shades around the sentiment panel to create a starry sky look. Next, add stars to the background by either die-cutting, stenciling or by heat embossing the stars in white. Then, add a thick layer of glossy accents (glue) along the front side of the frame area. Also, generously pour glitter over the glued frame and allow it to dry completely. Finally, assemble the card layers to finish.
Here is my video tutorial for this project. It will detail the full process.
