Colour with Eco Glitter

Today I’m showing you a fun and different way to colour your die-cut flowers and it is such a quick technique! Here I have used a beautiful floral die from Crafty Merkai, and along with some adhesive sheets, you can colour with eco glitter. This is great to use up glitter in your stash and make cards on demand. I’ve used this technique for a bold and contrasting birthday card, but this technique would suit a Christmas card with glitters in beautiful Christmas colours.

Colour with eco glitter

 Start off by adhering Altenew Double-sided adhesive sheets to white card. Next, die-cut out from this with the adhesive sheet side facing up using the Scarlett Floral Para-dies from Crafty Meraki.

Colour with eco glitter

Remove the adhesive backing on the die-cuts so only the flower head is revealed and cover with a colour of glitter of your choosing. For this card, I used Sea Fan Earth Sparkles (biodegradable) from WOW! Embossing Powder.  Next, remove the remainder of the adhesive backing sheet and cover the stem with green glitter – Mahi Mahi Earth Sparkles.

For the background, emboss a piece of Nautical Hero Hues cardstock with the Spellbinders Loops Embossing folder, trimming this down to add to a white card base. Next, adhere the flowers on top with foam pads to add some dimension. 

To finish the card off, add a sentiment over the fowers. Here I have hot foiled the Yana Sentiments Splatter Sentiments hot foil plate onto matching Nautical Hero Hues, along with a small happy from the same set. The larger sentiment was die-cut with the Yana’s Layering Script sentiments die-set. Lastly, a few gold sequins were added to embellish the card.
