I like messing with inks, but glitter is another matter entirely! I don’t have a craft room – my crafting space is a small foldaway table in the living room – which makes glitter etc impractical. So although I’ve had FlitterGlu & gilding flakes in my stash for ages, this was my first proper foray into the FlitterGlu technique. I do like the results but I’m not sure it’s something I’d want to bother with too often, at one stage I’m sure I had more flakes on me than the card . . .
I was inspired by this card but, as ever, didn’t copy it completely. The trellis was cut on my Craft Robo Lite from a template I made myself (shared on UKScrappers, if you’re interested). It was, in fact, only a test cut on quite thin card but it seemed a shame to waste it. However, the fact that the card was thin did make rubbing the flakes off with a “scoochie sponge” a very delicate operation.
The hearts were cut from a piece of DCWV Shimmer cardstock which I’d stamped with Flitter Glu using a Kaisercraft stamp, gilded with Lancashire Rose flakes & then cut out on my Cuttlebug using a heart Nestability. The greeting by Elzybells (sadly no longer available) was stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy.
