Shining cards

Hi there!

Today I have to shining cards to share. Do you like all things sparkling? I do.. now. Before crafting coming to my live anything shining was out of table for me. Glitter, gold, rhinestones … even eye shadows I preferred matte or satin tops. But in cardmaking with all these gold, glitter, sequins trends I happened to like them. And with time started liking them in real life as well.  So, without further a due let me start talking cards.

The first card is more complex one. I used burnished velvet technique here. Covered a piece of cardstock with super strong double-sided tape, cut cityscape design with Memory Box die. A cardstock with tape and one layer of release paper is pretty thick for die to cut completely through. Which is what we need for this technique. Die only cut release paper, tape and hardly touched a cardstock underneath so everything stayed in place. I was removing parts of release paper and poured micro glitter on tape revealed. The glitter is so fine and the tape is so strong so after applying it, burnishing with my bone folder and removing excess it became something like store-bought glitter paper. No mess, no glitter peeling, nothing falls down or stick to hands. And this background has an amazing velvety feel.

First I revealed the cityscape design, added glitter, burnished it and then colored with COPICs in rainbow colors. Card with Velvet background @s_shayevich #card #cas #glitter #copicsNext i reveled the rest of release paper and covered everything with glitter (in both cases I used white one). Then I cut some clouds from vellum, heat embossed a sentiment on one of them and adhered to my glitter panel (I used Xyron sticker maker for it). And as if it wasn’t enough – added a bunch of sequins 🙂Card with Velvet background @s_shayevich #card #cas #glitter #copicsThe next card on a contrary is extremely simple. One layer, gold embossing, 4 sequins – that is it 🙂Card with gold embossing @s_shayevich #card #cas #gold #embossing Do you like adding shine to your cards?
