More Glitter!

For the last two days I have been happily applying glitter to pretty much everything I have made and I have been having some fun doing it!  Today's card is for the final DeNami Design challenge for 2010:  use your punches.  Now I love my border punches, especially my Fiskars Upper Crust punch.  I remember the first time I saw it used was on Dawn McVey's blog over a year ago.   From that point the hunt was on to find one at my local Michaels and/or Joann.  Thankfully it didn't take me long to find one and I have been happily crafting with it ever since!  I paired it with two DeNami Design stamps that I purchased as a set back at the end of 2005.

 

I stamped the main holly image on white cardstock and then covered the piece with double-sided sticky tape that I got in sheet form.  I trimmed around the edges, pulled off the top sheet and poured on the glitter.   I punch a hole in one side and suspended the piece from the Upper Crust border piece at the top using white and green baker's twine.  The sentiment was stamped on white cardstock that had also been punched with the Upper Crust punch and adhered over the red piece.

Thanks for taking a peek..... now go glitter something up!

Oh this is absolutely gorgeous, Rosemary! Beautiful design and the glittery panel looks fantastic! That's so funny reading about your hunt for the Upper Crust punch - after seeing you use it on your cards I went hunting for it and bought one as soon as I came across it!
