It's funny how I usually don't like to use glitter knowing that I'll be sporting some on my face for the rest of the week afterwards. And yet, I used glitter on a lot of my convention display projects. Maybe because they were out on my work table and I kept thinking of new ideas to use them? Or I figured my work table was already a mess so I might as well go for it? Who knows, but here is another blingarific creation I've put together for convention.
It showcases three of the new In Colors: Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait and Pear Pizzazz. Paired together, those colours remind me of summer and a fruit salad or something equally fresh. The grosgrain ribbon used on the card is Certainly Celery so you can see that Pear is a little darker than Celery. They do make a nice dynamic duo, though, and all of those Celery accents you might have in your stash will work quite nicely with the pear cardstock. As illustrated with this card, since the glitter used is also s'pposed to be Celery. The letters were cut out of sticky sheet with the Simple Letters dies and the Big Shot, which made the whole glittering process easy-peasy.
The Poppy Parade cardstock was stamped repeatedly with the So Many Thanks stamp, the Peach Parfait cardstock was punched with the Scallop Trim punch and a filligree brad was added to the ribbon. This is a nice, dazzling card that you could put together very quickly and that could be added to any event just by changing the glittered word. (Ooh, can you picture the "Noël" version? That would be pretty...)
