Project Details

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Determine word to be used for sentiment on card. Remove letters from backing paper and place onto Black cardstock. Tip: Use ruler to ensure that the letters are lined up straight.
  • 2
    If just glittering one letter at a time, remove the top protective paper from each letter; sprinkle glitter over letter. Lightly push down glitter onto adhesive letter. Tap off excel glitter onto scrap paper and return to jar. Repeat for all letters.
  • 3
    If creating a glitter design as shown on the "congrats" card, remove all protective paper from the top of the letters. Sprinkle on various lines of glitter next to one another. Note that this technique will result in creating a "party" mix of glitter, but that can be an "added" color for another project! Lightly push glitter onto adhesive letters. Tap off excess and place in another jar.
  • 4
    For Congrats card, trim black paper and layer onto decorative cardstock from paper pack and then the star cardstock with tape runner.
  • 5
    Trim White cardstock to ½ inch width. Stamp "reach for the stars...". Rip edges. Layer onto card as shown with adhesive foam circles.
  • 6
    For Happy Day Card, it's best to cut black cardstock and decorate edges with border punch first.
  • 7
    Follow directions in Step 2 for "Happy Day" sentiment.
  • 8
    Add a layer of Glossy Accents to each letter and asterisk. Let completely dry. This will further seal the glitter onto the foam letter and will also brighten the colors!
  • 9
    Adhere to layers of cardstock from paper pack with tape runner.
