This is a bright, fun card that is quick and easy to create. I used the new Neon Glitters - Exulted! (hot pink), Energized! (orange), Electrified! (yellow), and Exhilarated! (green) from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Black Ice glitter was also added to the Want 2 Scrap piece of chipboard using the Glueless Glitter technique.
This is an easy way to add glitter without using any adhesive. Start out by covering the surface with VersaMark and then heat set with Clear embossing powder. I then cover the entire surface with more VersaMark, sprinkle on the glitter of my choice, and then heat set the entire thing. Your glitter is adhered and won't rub off.
To create the background, I started out with a piece of white cardstock and then covered it with varying widths of Tear-ific Tape. Before exposing any of the adhesive, I used the Die-Versions "You Are" Express Edge to die cut the top. The next step is to randomly expose the strips of adhesive and burnish on the glitter with your finger tip.
I added a couple strips of glitter ribbon to finish off the card. In order to create glitter ribbon, choose a long strip of Tear-ific Tape (in any width), cover one side with the glitter and then slowly peel off the protective backing and adhere glitter to the other side as well. Instead of making a bow, I tied a large knot in each of my pieces of glitter ribbon.
