Happy World Cardmaking Day all (I hope your days are filled with fun crafting)! Today’s video shares how to create colorful glitter embellishments for your cards using intricate die cuts. Also, Scrapbook.com provided me with $25 gift certificates that I can giveaway to three of you (more info at the end of this post)!

To start the technique, I covered a sheet of cardstock with strong 0.50-inch tape to create a full sheet of double-sided adhesive. Then, I cut the intricate Gilded Ornaments dies out of the adhesive cardstock (make sure that all of the little pieces stay in the cardstock.
I started peeling the release paper off of areas where I wanted to apply glitter to reveal the super sticky adhesive. Then, I applied the Sparkle Dust on top of the adhesive and buffed it in using my bone folder to ensure that it will stay put. This glitter is super fine and gives beautiful velvety results without being obnoxious. I repeated the same process until all of the dies were covered in glitter.
To ensure that no glitter will rub off, I added a coating of clear embossing powder on top of the die cuts. This enhances the sparkle and protects you from getting glitter everywhere! You could also use Glossy Accents to add a clear coating and add dimension to the embellishments (that will dry better on smaller die cuts).
For the textured background, I used the Circle Confetti cover plate die with an embossing mat to create a simple textured background. I added a grateful die cut on top of the ornament (on the inside you could write for you this Holiday season) because I can always use appreciation cards! To finish it off, I created little enamel hearts using Nuvo Drops.
