    Textured Glitter Card Step 1


  2. Place your stencil of choice over the white card layer, my stencil is smaller than the layer, so I have placed it half over mine – use crafters masking tape to hold your layer in place.

  3. Add some ink in different places around the edge of the layer, I started with a yellow ink that I blended. Textured Glitter Card Step 3



  4. Pick 2 more inks and blend these around the edge of the layer in the stencil.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 4


  5. Because my stencil was a smaller stencil, I have to turn my layer around and repeat steps 2 to 4, to get the colour on the card layer.

  6. After taking the stencil away from the layer, the design around the edge will be left – take one of the inks you have just used with the stencil and blend ink around the edge to soften the stencil design

  8. Attach the inked stencil layer to the blank card front using flat tape or tape runner.

  9. Cut a piece of white card to create a smaller layer for your card, I cut mine to the size of the stencil, knowing I will be trimming it after anyway.

  10. Use craft masking tape to attach the plain white card layer to an easy clean surface.

  11. Then use more craft masking tape to attach the stencil on top of the plain white card layer.

  12. Open your texture paste and get ready to start applying

  13. Start applying the texture paste over the stencil – being careful around the edges (however we will trim these anyway)

  14. Apply the texture paste all over the layer, until it is all covered.

  15. Sprinkle your glitter over the texture paste as soon as the stencil is covered.

  16. Peel away the stencil straight away (carefully) and wash your stencil immediately in warm soapy water.

  17. Leave your layer to dry – I left mine overnight to be sure it was all dry.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 17


  18. Once the texture paste is completely dry, trim the edges away so the patterned texture is to the edge of the layer.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 18


  19. Add ink to the edges of the texture paste layer and then use a piece of kitchen roll/paper to wipe the excess away from the edges, giving it a polish.

  20. Cut a layer of co-ordinating cardstock to matt the texture layer on to.

  21. Attach the layers on to the card front

  22. Cut a piece of ribbon, wrapping the tails over each other and attach to the top of the texture layer.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 22


  23. Stamp out the sentiment of your choice using a permanent black ink

    Textured Glitter Card Step 23


  24. Colour the sentiment in using tones that will match the ink you have used on the layers.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 24


  25. Cut out the sentiment and add 3D foam to the back of the sentiment.

    Textured Glitter Card Step 25


  26. Attach the sentiment over the ribbon on the card front.
