Glittered Hearts Card




This card measures 4 and 1/4 square.

The green patterned paper as the back layer is from The Bo Bunny Ambrosia 6 by 6 pad.

For the hearts I used a cut from the Silhouette online store. The design # is 20829 if you're interested in getting it for yourself.  The black piece measures 4 inches square.

I covered the back of the black piece with packing tape.  Then I added glitter to each heart.  I used the Martha Stewart glitter colors Tourmaline, Peridot, Lapis Lazuli, and Purple Spinel.  Loose glitter can be much messier than glitter glue to work with, but it gives a totally different look and sometimes I think it's worth it.  I made sure to really rub the glitter into each heart with my finger and then tap off all the excess so that this card won't be shedding glitter everywhere.

The banner was cut using a Spellbinders Die from their Ribbon Banners set.  It's up on pop dots.

The sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn's Lunar Lights set.  I stamped it in Versamark and then used Stampin' Up's embossing powder in Silver.

Thanks for stopping by today!
