Quick one tonight. With this one I started with one idea and finished with an entirely different one. I quite like how it turned out.
I'm entering this into CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #14 where they are asking that we use adhesive dots or strips to add glitter to our project.
I used glue strips with two techniques. For my glittery red strips, I heat embossed sparkly embossing powder. For my glittery white strips, I just dunked the strips into glitter (and got glitter EVERYWHERE, lucky I like to sparkle, LOL). It was slightly tricky lining the glue strip up on my card strips because I cut the card the exact size of the glue strip before I started. . . but I got there. I used weaving for my background. I got the idea from Cristina's card. The weaving in my card is snuggled into a window cut in my navy coloured card.
I am also entering this card into Simon Says Stamp "Christmas In August" challenge.
Here is my card:
It is so hard to photograph white glittery bits on cards! You can see the glitter clearer in my top section photo. And you can see the texture of the weaving a bit better here:
Colours used were Whisper White, Real Red, Night of Navy. Sentiment is SU Four the Holidays. I hand cut the star (don't look too close).
What do you think?
