This week I am featuring Glimmer Paper. This wonderful set of papers, (well card really), is available only as part of Sale-A-Bration. This is one of 15 FREE items that may be added to a qualifying order of £45, spend £90 choose 2 items etc. This event ends 31st March and stock is flying, so don’t miss out, get in quick. The links to products and online store are at the bottom of this post.
All the stamping on this project was done using the Avant Garden photopolymer set, (also available as a Sale-A-Bration item).
The glimmer paper comes as a pack of 12 6×6 inch sheets. There are 3 colours in the pack, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron. I used the matching inks to stamp all the images.
Using a Stampin’ Up! note card as a base, I cut a the glimmer paper to 3 3/8 by 4 7/8 inches and a Whisper White layer at 3 1/8 by 4 5/8. This I stamped all over with the dots from Avant Garden. This was adhered to the glimmer paper with glue dots, (I found this was better than wet glue or tape).
Using the 2nd largest scalloped layering oval die, I cut another piece of glimmer paper, than a Whisper White Stitched Oval, (2nd largest). On this I stamped the sentiment and added the large flower from Avant Garden. I did not want this to be too strong so this was stamped off once first. The 2 layers were adhered together with glue dots.
The complete oval topper was placed on the card using dimensionals. Really simple to create and looks stunning, clean and bright with no fuss. Extra embellishments could be added, but I wanted the glimmer to shine!
Hope you enjoyed this, more glimmer projects coming soon!
