PapercraftsThis week on the Less is More Blog, the challenge is "STARS".
Glittery Number card: A tutorial
Quick instructions are:I use a printer to a huge font size and print directly onto the Jac paper. (Jac Paper is like Double sided sticky tape only in sheet size formats)
I hand cut the big numbers from double sided Jac pape.
Peel the backing off one side and stuck it onto some layers first.
The coloured card layer is stamped and embossed in silver and then trimmed to size.
Layer this onto your base card which already has had a metallic embossed paper adhered to the front.
Peel off the bottom layer of the jac paper and stick down onto your coloured card layer.
Peel off the top layer & randonly sprinkle some star sequins over the sticky exposed surface.
Sprinkle the rest of the sticky surface with ultra fine glitter.
Glue some extra sequins in a scattered fashion off to the right of the card, extending the 'explosion' effect as per photos.
The gold and silver backing papers are from a dear friend who used to make cake bases and has all these yummy gold and sliver embossed papers left over that she shared with me. I am very stingy in using up these yummy papers. (Thanks Lesley)
Hope you enjoyed these cards. I have some lovely ideas for variations.
Enjoy your crafting time
