Velvet Glitter Valentine Card

Hi friends!  Have you seen the new Velvet glitters in the Classy Cards 'n Such store? Oh my goodness, they are GORGEOUS! I've used the Orchid Rose velvet glitter on this card here.

I started by pulling some papers out of the Love Letters 6x6 paper pad, just mixing and matching until they were just right. I cut the papers and adhered them to a black cardstock layer. For the bottom, I die cut one of the solid beige papers (from the same Love Letters pad) with the Lady Kate Edger (Cheery Lynn Designs) and adhered it below the pink paper. I then stamped the sentiment from Hugs and Kisses Sentiments (JustRite) with black ink directly onto the pink paper.

Now the fun started! I adhered two strips of 1/4" wide Scor Tape above and below the sentiment. After I removed the liner, I covered both strips of tape with the Orchid Rose velvet glitter. I used the Glitter Roll technique from Technique Junkies (6/11 issue) to make sure the glitter was well adhered and then I brushed off the excess. This Orchid Rose glitter is a perfect match with the colors in this Love Letters paper pad.

Next, I cut the Vintage Apothecary Jar from vanilla cardstock and set it down. I then used a small heart punch from my stash and punched out several hearts from the Love Letters papers. I then adhered the hearts to the "inside" of the jar and then affixed the jar to the card with some Joy Foam Pads. Then I glued this entire card front down onto a vanilla card base.

This glitter is just awesome. It's so fine and so soft, it really does feel like velvet! I can't wait to try out the other colors!!!
