Checkerboard Christmas

Monday, October 4, 2010

 I couldn't resist making another glitter card.  Now this isn't what I would consider a "more elaborate design" than the previous card, but it does make a cool effect.  I have to say that most of the 'wow' comes from the quality of this glitter.  Martha Stewart glitter really is a great quality glitter. 
 It has the most magnificent sparkle!
 A few people have asked for a tutorial.  Unfortunately, with work I barely have time to make the card let alone a tutorial for it:) So what I have done is taken photos of my Paper Crafts Magazine.  These photos are on page 88 of the November/December 2010 issue. 
I hope that helps!
Thanks for stopping by:)

Cardstock: PTI White, Pure Poppy
Stamps: PTI Home for the Holidays, Bird Watching
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Martha Stewart Glitter, Ribbon, Thermoweb Adhesive Sheets
