Quick and easy card with Glitter Glaze by Sweta
Hello friends! Today I wanted to share a quick and easy card with you. Many times we are in a rush to put something together at a moments notice and this is one such card.
I used Alabaster glitter glaze on a hot pink card stock over the Antique Trellis stencil (my current favorite - I have two videos on Brutus Monroe’s Youtube channel in case you’d like to check it out). Whilst that was drying I took a 2.5 inch piece of Metallic Gold Card stock and tore one edge to give it a deckled edged.
Next I splattered some Aqua Pigment in gilded over dark navy card stock. Going back to the panel of glitter glaze, I made sure it was dry before proceeding to die cut it with a tag die. I still had left over panel available to use for a future project.
I also die-cut the inside word ‘happy’ from Christopher’s Sentiments with the same navy card stock and its shadow in vellum. Finally I heat embossed the sentiment ‘birthday’ in gilded embossing powder to match the overall look of this card.
To assemble the card, I first tied a white and gold twine onto the tag and wrapped it around the gold strip. I adhered down the gold strip with liquid glue and I added some foam tape behind the tag before adhering it to the card base.
And finally adhered the word ‘happy’ and ‘birthday’ (with a strip of foam tape) onto the tag and that completed this card. I like the fact that this card does not require any other coloring medium and can be tailored easily for gender neutral cards and different occasions to keep on hand.
Thanks for stopping by!
