Glittery Shoes!

Good Morning!

I've got a card for you today and a little tutorial - I get asked such a lot at shows and via email about glittering with a double sided sticky sheet so here's my little 'how to'!

First off... here's my card!

For this one, I've used paper from Pretty Projects Templates & More in Lilac and my topper is the Dotty Shoes from our Handbags & Shoes stamp set! The glitter colour I used was Luxurious Lavender!

I used some of our Luxury Lace collection (which is almost out of stock at the moment on C&C!), some of the gorgeous Assorted Pearls (again, almost out of stock!) and some American Seam Binding for the bow/ribbon!

My sentiment is taken from the Butterflies stamp set and flowers to embellish are from the Large Essential Flowers, Beautiful Blossoms and then a couple of twirly roses from the CD.

And finally, a little key embellishment from our Lasercuts!

Right, now for my tutorial...

First off, I stamped out the image twice - once to colour and once to cut up.

I coloured the areas that I didn't want glittered with my Graph it markers on the first image.

Then, cut up the second image and put some of the double sided sticky sheet on top:

I peeled off the backing (I find it easier to take off the backing so I can see my lines properly rather than cutting through the backing sheet) and cut out the areas I had coloured on my first image.

Dunk it into the glitter (this one is Sea Breeze)

And then add the glittered shoes on top of the coloured shoes!

Then you'll get them to look like the ones on my card:

Hope that's a little bit of help if you weren't sure how I achieved this effect!

Have a fabulous day,
