Glitter and Gleam, Sparkle and Shine!


My card today is all about glitter.   American Crafts makes a beautiful craft glitter tape in vivid colors.  All the glitter tape I used on my card is from Cutters Creek.  I got my tape by joining a club and on a monthly basis I get three rolls of glitter tape in three various sizes and in different colors.  The Cutters Creek Store does not carry the tape at this time but if you ask Kim, (owner of Cutters Creek) Cutters Creek Contact Page I know she would be glad to order it for you.

I didn’t want to make a frilly card. I just went with a plain cream colored background and base card.  On it I added several colors of glitter tape and glitter hearts.  I even added the tape and glitter hearts to the inside of my card.  And a little machine stitching. Plus I inked the edges of the base card with a muted gold ink.

The sentiment used was created on my computer and placed it in an oval shape.  Printed it out and cut it for the front of the card.  The sentiment says:  “You glitter and gleam, sparkle and shine”.  It expresses the design of the card.  Here is the finished product.  Let me know what you think of all the colors I used of the glitter tape.  I am a big Stickles lover but I think that this glitter tape is right up there with Stickles.  You just have to get some of this tape and see how beautiful it is and so easy to use!
