I'm still having a lot of fun using Glitter Glitz art glitter on cards. Recently I purchased some new Dreamweaver stencils and I could hardly wait to try out this particular holly and berry background stencil using Glitter Glitz.
I wanted to create some quick Christmas cards that had a lot of pizzazz and sparkle but didn't take ours and hours to create individually. The sentiment stamp is one of the new Stampin' Up! hostess sets called "Best Yet" and it has 6 different sentiment stamps. I know this will be a well used SU set in my collection.
If you haven't used a lot of metal stencils before but would like to try them, I encourage you to check out the huge variety there are on the market. I particularly like Dreamweaver stencils but there are many companys with wonderful designs. You can use stencils if a variety of ways from dry embossing, embossing paste, of course as I've used here with art glitter and you can also use stencils for embossing in your Cuttlebug too using the correct stack of mats and plates.
On this particular card I ran my tape runner along the outside edges and covered with bright red glitter for a sparkle-y edge. I thought it set off the center image well. One nice thing too is that this card isn't thick and while it looks like it has layers to it, they are thin enough for this card to go through the postal system easily enough.
It is a gorgeous day outside here in the Ottawa, Ontario area and I think I will go out of doors and enjoy this lovely weather while we still have it. I hope you are enjoying a lovely day too.
