Glittery Banner card

Hi folks!  Have you played in the latest challenge over on the Classy Cards 'n Such blog?  I love glitter, and it's so much fun to add that extra little sparkle to a card or project with some glitter.  I decided to think outside the box and do something a little different for this glitter challenge.

See the fun banners?  I actually used one of the dies in the Classy Cards 'n Such store.  At first glance, you are thinking there's no such die there.  Actually, by thinking outside the box, you'll find multiple uses for your dies.  For my banner, I used the Lace Light Deco Border and cut it out several times.  I set aside the "border" die cut for another use later on.  Looking at the piece that is leftover from cutting, you can see the banner shape in the picture below.

That's the piece that I used for my card here.  Pretty cool, huh??

I used the Glitter Roll technique from Technique Junkies and adhered three different colors of glitter to three strips of the banner "die cut."  Then I arranged the banners on my card layer and glued them down, letting the strips hang over the edges.  I used scissors to cut off the excess glittered banners, and I stamped the sentiment at the bottom.  This piece was adhered to a turquoise card base that is 5.5"x4.25" (A2 size).

The following products that I've used can be found in the Classy Cards 'n Such store:

Lace Light Deco Border (Cheery Lynn Designs die)
Sweet Wishes stamp set (Stampavie)
Green Nugget glitter
Misty Blue Ultrafine glitter
Lacy Lilac glitter

There are lots of beautiful colors of glitter in the store.  If you are a glitter lover like me, you'll want to own every single one of them!  :-)  Play along in this fun challenge and you'll have a chance to win a fun shopping spree and stock up on more glitters!
