I am really enjoying the sparkle and Shine class over at Online Classes that Jennifer McGuire and a Kristina Werner teach. This is the card I made for the first dayof the class. I should say this the only one I can share. I had many starts and this is the only finished card. My waste basket is quite full. For me it is going to take a lot of practice. Of course I have lifetime access to the class so I will be able to do just that. On the bottom card I used a die that cut out strips of card stock then used a sheet of sticky double sided paper from Elizabeth Craft to back it. I then used some red and silver glitter to fill in the cut outs. It is rather messy but using a coffee filter to catch the glitter helps and also used a piece of a swifter dust cloth is really handy to clean up any stray glitter and to wipe off the card as well. I then peeled the backing off and put it on a side fold card base. I cut the Happy Birthday out of Silver glitter paper and black paper. Giving it a shadow and making it stand out better.
I will be posting each days cards so that you can see them all.
Until next time!
