Hi all! Tami Mayberry here with you today with a quick and easy way to add some sparkling color to your cards. This fun technique will work great with any project that has an open area to fill.

To begin, I die-cut the image shown below from cardstock using a chevron die.

Glitter Step 1

Next, I cut a piece of double-sided adhesive the same size as the die-cut piece.

Glitter Step 2

I peeled away one side of the double-sided adhesive, attached the die-cut shape and filled the opening with glitter.

Glitter Step 3

I burnished the glitter with my finger, flipped the piece over and peeled away the second piece of the backing.

Glitter Step 4

Finally I attached the piece to the desired panel and it’s ready to embellish and place on the card.

Glitter Step 5

The final result:

Glitter Card

    I’d be interested to know which product you use for double sided adhesive. That’s a fun technique.

      Maria, Tami used Scor-Tape for the double-sided adhesive which is listed under the “Supplies used” section of the post. We always try to list each of the products in this section so our readers know which products to purchase if they would like to make the project. Hope that helps!
