Glitter Glaze Background
Hello crafty friends! I’m jumping in today with a card that showcases a background made with glitter glaze.
I used a plastic knife tool to spread a thin layer of glitter glaze diagonally, starting with Berry, then Grape, and finishing with Scarlet. Where each color meets, I made sure to scrape a very tiny amount of the next color upwards, so the color lines blend together. I removed the stencil immediately, and washed it gently with soap and water.
The glitter glaze is SO PRETTY! It dries to such a great, sparkly finish, and bonus, the glitter does not rub off on your hands! As the glitter glaze is a little bit thinner and more flexible than other similar products on the market, it die cuts beautifully. I used a stitched circle die to cut the center out of this background, and then scored a card base also with the Alabaster cardstock. I positioned the glitter glaze card front over the card base, and used the hole to center a smaller stitched circle die, and tape it into place. I ran the card base through my die cutter with the smaller stitched circle.
You could eliminate this step entirely by using the stencil and the glitter glaze directly on the card front, and die cut a single circle. When I made the background, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the project yet!
I popped the glitter glaze layer up with some foam tape and adhered it to the card base. Then I used the “hello” die in the Speech Bubbles die set, cutting it 5 times from the Raven cardstock. I adhered the layers together to get nice dimension. I adhered the sentiment into the middle of the die cut circles, so it is actually stuck to the inside of the card! When you open the card, the sentiment stays put.
I hope you try out the fabulous glitter glaze and post your pictures to social media!
