December Monthly Card Challenge - To use Glitter and Simmer Sheetz

 Hi Everyone, It's that time again for Elizabeth Craft Designs Monthly Challenge. This month's challenge is to make a card or a project using ECD Silk Microfine Glitter and Shimmer Sheetz. So here is my card using glitter and Shimmer Sheetz.

Here are my instructions for making this card:

1. Create card base from black cardstock. Cut 10"x 17" rectangle; score and fold in half (5"x 7" finished card size).
2. Cut blue paper 4 3/4"x 6 3/4" and then cut patterned paper 4 1/2"x 6 1/2".
3. Add dark blue border (box) using 3mm ECD Transparent Double Side Tape. Add light blue border using 6mm tape as shown. Adhere Deep Turquoise Silk Microfine Glitter and Royal Blue respectively.
4. Cut out Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz with Bamboo Trellis. Emboss using Berry Branch Embossing folder. Apply Azure and Iris StazOn ink to raised areas. Adhere using pop up dots as shown.

5. Apply lace to ECD Transparent Double Side Tape. Apply Deep Turquoise Silk Microfine Glitter. Burnish well and sweep off excess before applying Solar Gold glitter.

6. Remove lace and apply Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Burnish well with finger.

7. Cut out with Kimono die. 
8. Cut out overlay with black Velvet Adhesive sheet. Adhere over Kimono in step 7.

9. Apply ECD Transparent Double Side Tape onto white cardstock. Cut flowers using Crystal Flower Set 1. Apply Deep Turquoise and Solar Gold Silk Microfine Glitter. Cut small flowers out with Gold Metallic Shimmer Sheetz with Bunches of Flowers Die and attach as shown. Place 1 large flower in Swirly Curves Embossing Folder and highlight with Azure StazOn inkpad.

10. Adhere blue glitter dot to center of flower. Adhere blue Glitter Border to the outside of card as shown. Cut out "Happy New Year" with blue and black Velvet Sheet.
