Seasons Greetings - Pink by Design Day

Hi Everyone! Its my turn over at Pink by Design's blog today. I decided to go Christmas on all of you! :) For my card I used Jolly Holidays for the ornament and "Season's Greetings" is from Pink by Design "Old Time Christmas"

Don't you just love that glitter? No its not the paper, its not stickles... its Martha Stewart glitter. I've noticed in my pictures that stickles doesn't show up very well. I've recently seen this technique about how to adhear glitter with Glossy accents! 

So hear is the easy way to add that glitter!! This is what my ornament looked like before the glitter.. kind of plain don't ya think? 

Step 1: Apply your glossy accents to the area you want to glitter. You can see that I applied it to the top portion of the ornament here.. 

Step 2: Add your glitter!! Yes it is that easy! I tend to go overboard with the glitter. I just want to make sure it gets coated 100%. And when I'm done I just put the excess glitter back in the jar so I don't waste any of it. :) 

Step 3: Wait for it to dry. I like to wait 20 minutes but it seems to dry faster than that, I just tend to be overly cautious. After its dry knock off the excess glitter. You can use a small paint brush to help get the glitter off your item. 

See.. I told you that was easy! :) Now go glitter something! Thanks for checking out my post today! ~Candace
