Today's card is a departure from my usual designs. I saw this technique and it seemed easy and dramatic so I wanted to give it a try.
Here's how I made it. I started with a white cardstock panel measuring 4" x 5 1/4". I used a product called Score Tape. It's made in Japan and has adhesive on both sides. One side is covered with a paper backing so it's easy to handle. It comes in different widths. I used 1/2" and 1/4" for this project. The tape is on a roll and it's easy to cut into strips. So that's exactly what I did.
After randomly adhering the strips to the cardstock I got out my mini ink pads and blending sponges. I used Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Picked Raspberry colors, covering the entire front panel.
Now I was ready for the fun part. I took off the top paper liner from the strips, exposing the sticky adhesive.
I found some Martha Stewart glitter almost the same color as the raspberry ink and dumped it all over.
After shaking off the excess glitter this is what it looked like.
I cleaned up some tiny imperfections and die cut a "thanks" word 4 times from white cardstock. I stacked one on top of each other gluing them into one thicker word element. I glued the word on top the glitter panel and popped it up on a white card base.
And there is the finished card. It's a lot more glittery in person. I might have to make a bunch of these in different colors. Heaven knows, I have a ton of glitter to use up!
