Glittery Peace

OK, I admit that I hate glitter because of the mess.  I sparkle for days as does the cat and everything else in the house.  I took on today's Technique Challenge and pulled out the glitter and glue pad which I haven't used in ages.

I immediately thought of my favorite "go to" background from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. Baroque Background.  I used tsuineko's Essential Glue Pad and stamped the background on Riding Hood Red CS.  The tags were die cut using Spellbinders Tags Trio set (lg for Forest & Med. for the white layer)  Peace (Rubbernecker) was also stamped with the essential glue pad and glittered.  The Holly Script (Stamp Oasis) was stamped on the white tag in Distress Pine Needles and on the Forest tag in Blanco White.  The raised Holly script was stamped with Stazon Jet Black, colored with copic markers and glittered as well and raised on foam dimensional tape.  The card was finished with green organdy.

  7. What a gorgeous card! Wow, the glitter shows up just perfect in your picture and the ribbon is a very rich touch. Tell me how you took the picture so that detail would show without it blurring. Lovely!
