Daisy Glitter Stripes

Hi friends!  Happy New Year!!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful time watching the ball drop.  Unfortunately, I didn't last that long - my eyes were closed by 10:30pm on New Year's Eve!  LOL

The other day, I was itching to pull out some glitters and play, so here's what I came up with.  Isn't that fun?? I had such a blast making this card. First, I cut a layer of white cardstock and then laid down some strips of 1/4" wide Scor Tape. After I pulled off the protective papers, I remembered to turn my ceiling fan off BEFORE I opened the jar of glitter. LOL!! With the fan safely off, I opened the Misty Blue glitter and sprinkled it all over the exposed tape. I then did the Glitter Roll technique (6/11 issue) from Technique Junkies to make sure all my glitter was pressed down and then I shook off the excess glitter.

I stamped the sentiment from Anytime Sentiments (Impression Obsession) with black ink and then adhered this white glittery layer to a black card base. Next, I cut some white cardstock with the Shasta Daisy Strip die (Cheery Lynn Designs) and adhered the layers of flower petals together. I glued a yellow button to the center and then glued the daisy down onto my card where the lines of glitter intersect.

Such a FUN card to make, I tell ya! I have a feeling I'm going to spend this weekend making more cards like this with different colors of glitter and different flowers and sentiments. Are you going to make a card similar to this one? I'd love to see what you create! :-)
