Glitter cards

I'd been meaning to try the glitter to scor-tape technique for a long time now, and I finally sat down to do it the other night. I used Martha Stewart glitter, and couldn't help but pull out the one that matches Hawaiian Shores!

love peace joy glitter

This first card has some non-traditional colors for a holiday card, and is very clean and simple.

merry and bright glitter

My second card reminds me of a gift! Same idea with the strips of scor-tape and glitter.

Hope you have a great day!

I am so scared of glitter. It's the mess that it inevitably will make that deters me every time. These are so festive though, I might have to break out the sparkle!
