MFT Camp Create Day 5 Glitzy Glitter
This is the final day of MFT Camp Create. It has been a lot of fun creating using different styles and themes. I have also learned new techniques along the way from the video's on the MFT Blog.
For the last day Glitzy Glitter I decided to create a simple card using the MFT Big Hugs Die and MFT Large Desert Bouquet along with Elizabeth Craft Designs Turquoise Glitter and Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.
First, I stamped three of the flowers from the stamp set with Versamark embossing ink after using my EK Success Powder Tool to keep the embossing powder only on the image that I want to emboss.
Second, I adhered my panel, which is Neenah 80 lb to an A2 card base. The base I used in the video is Neenah 110 lb, however after the video I decided that I wanted the base to be black so I used Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock cut to A2 size for the final card.
To create the glitter letters I adhered three rows of 1" Scor Tape to the bottom of a piece of Neenah 80 lb. Once the three rows were adhered I ran the Hugs die on the scor-tape through my Big Shot several times to cut though the cardstock and scor-tape. Once the letters were cut I simply removed the scor-tape and spooned the glitter on to each letter. After each letter was covered in glitter I used my finger to push the glitter into the tape then I used my bone folder to further burnish the glitter.
Tip: Use a swiffer cloth to clean up the glitter and remove the excess. It will keep the glitter from coming off. Last, I adhered the letters to my panel to complete the card.
I have really enjoyed the MFT camp create and I hope you have as well. Click Here to view all of the cards that I have created during the week.
Have a great day!!
