Add Sparkle to Their Day with This Quick and Easy Card

Hello again!! Due to a recent surgery I had to take some time off from crafting but I am finally back up to speed again. My desk is all cleaned off, I have some great new supplies to play with and I'm working on lots of projects to share (including some guest designer projects!). If you follow me on Instagram you've probably already saw a peek of some of the things I am working on. Truth be told, I am much better at posting random photos and a quick sentence than I am blogging! But for my blog readers here I am, ready to share one of my newest cards with you. 

This card uses some of the latest Tim Holtz dies from Sizzix and some new stamps I recently ordered from Verve Stamps. Both of which I am loving!! Keep reading for a list of supplies step-by-step instructions and tips when creating.

  • Form a 4.25 x 5.5-inch top-fold card from kraft cardstock.
  • Cut a piece of yellow dotted paper slightly smaller than card base; adhere to card front.
  • Attach adhesive sheet to back of glitter cardstock.
  • Die-cut Thinlits Mini Globe shape from glitter cardstock; adhere to card front using photo as a guide.
  • Stamp sentiment onto light blue dotted paper; cut out and V-notch end creating a banner. Adhere to card front.

Ideas to note:

--Before die-cutting intricate designs such as the Mini Globe, attach an adhesive sheet to the back of your cardstock. Once die-cut, peel off the backing and attach to project.

--Use the Sizzix Die Brush with foam pad to thoroughly remove the small areas from the die-cut globe.

*Use the following Sizzix sandwiches when die-cutting the pieces:

Thinlits Mini Globe
Magnetic Platform, a Standard Cutting Pad,  glitter paper, die (cutting side down), and, finally, the second Standard Cutting Pad.
Standard Cutting Pad, followed by the die (cutting side up), paper/cardstock and the second Cutting Pad
