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.
Next, I cut a piece of double-sided adhesive the same size as the die-cut piece.
I peeled away one side of the double-sided adhesive, attached the die-cut shape and filled the opening with glitter.
I burnished the glitter with my finger, flipped the piece over and peeled away the second piece of the backing.
Finally I attached the piece to the desired panel and it’s ready to embellish and place on the card.
The final result:
