I had such a good time with yesterday's PK GLITZ glitter & overlay card that I decided to use my leftovers and complete a second card. The only downside I have found to this technique is that I end up sparkling until I shower! My clothes, hair and face all had a glittery sparkle sheen after I had finished with the glitters. Perhaps if I were neater...??? Hmmm... There's a thought!
Just like yesterday, I began with a printed 8.5 x 11 inch overlay printed with four Santa images. I trimmed one Santa from the sheet and saved the others for later. For this project I decided to start with the white glitter. I applied the crystal lacquer glue in small amounts to Santa's beard and fur and then I dusted with white glitter. I continued on to the other colors, just like coloring with markers. Until I had to complete the skin.
I did not purchase a skin color, a major over site! I have since placed an order at PK Glitz for 3-4 additional colors of glitter, but I wanted to finish this Santa while I had it out. I took a bit of white glitter and added a tiny bit of red to the white. Mixing well I created a very light pink color and applied that to Santa's face and hands and the baby doll dress.
To complete the card I used the negative area from yesterday's frames, reversing the layers I placed the plaid on top of the words layer. And to mix it up a bit, Using the Art Philosophy cartridge I cut the frame in the tiny Christmas word cardstock! And best of all, I did not glue it down upside down today!!
I used an oval of red cardstock as a background behind the Santa image. I affixed the negative area frames to the outside edges of a green base card. Next I layered the red oval, the Santa image - glitter side down - and the tiny word frame. I attached them to the middle of the green card, leaving a green border showing from the back. Just like yesterday I finished the card by adding red Stickles to the frame cut outs.
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with a Cricut project for Melanie's and Joy's Everyday Cricut blog. I hope you can come and visit.
