Jenny Gropp - You are here!

 I loved this little Easter Scene! I made a sparkly little card with it for Day 2 of the Hop! I stepped my process out again today --- super easy card that finishes with a sugary sparkle!

I put a layer of double sided ScorPal tape on a yellow Shimmer Sheet. Peel the top adhesive layer of the tape and carefully place the white die cut down on to the sticky surface. 

 I added Microfine Transparent Glitter over the entire image, rubbing it in well using my finger. After I was sure all the areas were coated with glitter I used a brush to clean any remaining glitter off the panel.

 Here is the finished panel. You can see the sparkle of the glitter and also the shimmering colors on the background.

 I repeated the process to get another sparkly layer for the card front.

 These pics don't show off the texture or the sparkle! In person it is super shimmery!!! 


On the inside I added the "Easter" from the Easter Greeting Die and the "Wishes" from the Greeting Die Set
  • Dies from Impression Obsession: Easter Square Cutout DIE264-ZZ, Easter Greetings DIE256-N, Greeting Die Set DIE174-W 
  • Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110#, Blue patterned paper form Lawn Fawn, Yellow 
  • Other: Bow Easy Tool, Iridescent String from May Arts. Foam Tape, Microfine Glitter from Elizabeth Crafts - Cool Transparent, Yellow Shimmer Sheetz by Elizabeth Crafts, Double Sided Scor Pal Tape Sheets, Stick It, Spellbinder's Grand Labels One, Spellbinder's Decorative Labels One
