A spring colored greeting Thinking of you

This card is so much fun, you could send this to anyone to let them know that you're thinking of them.  We just made this card last night in our February stamp club meeting.  The ladies enjoyed it, and I have to say that you just can't go wrong with glitter!

The technique for this card is the glittery letters; the really cool thing about this technique is that you can create letters that coordinate with your project because you can make them with any of our fabulous colors.  And, since you're making the letters yourself, you will never run out of a letter that you need like you will when you purchase packs of letters.  Have you ever run out of the letter "e" when you're scrapbooking?  It is a HUGE pain in the neck!  For this sample, and the description below I created them with chipboard.  You will need to use a Sizzix Bigz die to cut out the letters with a chipboard base.  If you want to use one of the thinner Sizzlit dies, you will need to skip the chipboard layer because it is too thick for those. 

Here is how you create your very own letters:

  1. Cut the chipboard, cardstock and Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the size needed for your letter(s)
  2. Adhere the cardstock to the chipboard using Tombow Multipurpose adhesive (skip this step if you're using a Sizzlit die)
  3. Peel the backing off one side of the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive sheet and stick it over the cardstock
  4. Die cut the letter with the adhesive sheet face down (if you do it wrong, your letters will be reversed)
  5. Peel off the backing from the letter(s)  and cover with Dazzling Diamonds glitter

I used the following materials to make this project:

  • Stamps: Always Elegant
  • Ink: Perfect Plum
  • Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede
  • Accessories:  Perfect Pennants Sizzix Bigz L die, Alphabet Simple Letters Sizzix Bigz die, Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets, On Board Sheets, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue, Adorning Accents embossing folder, 1 3/4" Circle punch, Circles #2 Bigz die

I hope you'll try out this technique, and please let me know how you like it.  Have a fantastic day!
