How to Dry Emboss with Glitter:

The photos with the card standing up show the darker aspect of the glitter:


The photos of the card laying down show the lighter aspect of the glitter:


Flowers made with the scraps of Super Adhesive Sheets and glitters. The brads are heat embossed, and the flowers are distressed with the same color embossing powder:


Silly little sentiment - also slightly distressed with embossing powder:


I wish you could see this card in person! It sparkles all over:

Glittery-goodness for sure! Lots of great tips and details. Love that dark purple dry embossed background. I don't think I've tried that technique yet, but now I definitely will :-)

Shona Erlenborn said...

Too much fun, Miss Donna! This is so fabulous - better than a great fitting bra! Isn't that sentiment the cutest and the glitter is so fun with the images. Gorgeously embossed background too!

Dang! This is cool. I love the dry embossed background. I will definitely be trying that technique. This card is really bright and glittery and I wish I could see it in person. I like too that you showed us the card flat and also standing up - the embossed texture really does change depending on the perspective. I am delighted by this card and love it. Thanks so much for creating it!

Another stunning card Donna!! You work so well with glitter! I don't use glitter very often because I get it all over the place!

Planetsusie said...

Oooh this is just so lovely Donna - I can always trust that you will enlighten me in one way or another - firstly I adore the glittery tutorial - I learn from you all the time and secondly I now know why me life is never in control 'cos me bust-bodice (bra) and apple-catchers (knickers) don't match! Methinks I'm a tad too old to change now though - so I shall keep on being totally out of control - poor hubby! I also love the pics that you pop onto your blog, this card really is a corker!

As for the paper on my Christmas card - it is really thick paper or a lightweight card so I could easily distress it. If I'd distressed ordinary paper I would probably have ended up with confetti! C'est la vie! Catch you again soon and please take care of yourselves. Big hugs Sue Pxxx

Debi said...

This card is nothing but sparkle! Fabulous! Great technique instructions, too. Wonderful to have you join this week's Tuesday Throwdown Challenge again! Hugs, Debi DT

MaryH said...

Some great sets in this month's reveal. I love the one you chose for this cute card. Love all the glitter & velvet & your coloring on glitter is perfect. So much appreciate all the photos in the detailed tutorial, and didn't the Misti work great here for the proper placement. Love the sentiment too! As always, your card is gorgeous with so many extra details. Also love the emboss look over the glitter...looks like deep plush fabric. TFS & Hugs
