So on to my project I created.....................I made a card that has a lot of sparkle and also has a pull out ornament.
The white circle is a cut from Cindy Loo cartridge cut twice with the second one flipped. I covered both birds with Martha Stewart Garnet glitter, after it dried I glittered the rest with Martha Stewart Fine Crystal glitter. Very hard to see the sparkle but it is there. I welded a ornament hanger from Christmas Noel cartridge so I could put ribbon through so it could be hung up. Then using the shadow feature for the same cut on the Cindy Loo I cut it from clear acetate, so I could glue the glitter pieces back to back on the acetate.
Gluing something like this on acetate is rather challenging as it slips and then you can see it, so I dabbed glue all over the acetate and it gave it the look of an ice crystal window effect. Pretty good cover up for a mistake. LOL
The red background paper I stamped using Versamark Dazzle with a star stamp to just give it a watermark look, then when I glued the glued on the front I left a pocket for the ornament to slip into.
I even finished the inside, (this is unusual for me) using a frame from Stretch Your Imagination, then cut the bow frame out of the same gold as the front, also from Stretch Your Imagination.
The card is 5 1/2 inch square card and the ornament is just under 5 inches. Here is the card with the ornament taken out.
