Greeting Card Series: Glitter Design

How’s it going? Hopefully you’re able to enjoy the sunshine where you are because I don’t know of anybody here who would want to spend more than a minute outside. With highs in the single digits and wind chills hovering around twenty below, this twenty something degree high temperature today will feel like summer. Who knew I would be happy to see that temperature, ever!

Also, happy birthday to the lovely man I get to call husband. time to celebrate!

Next, very lightly trace the design to the 8.5×5.5 white cardstock.

Place enough white glue on top to cover the entire shape. You don’t need too much, but just enough to cover the silhouette. With intricate corners, a paint brush might be helpful.

If desired, glue colored paper to the inside for the memo and make envelopes as well.  To minimize the handling of the cards with glitter, you could score the fold line and glue the memo piece before putting on the glitter.
