This is my favorite 3D project of the samples I've submitted for convention. I like the colors and I like how it sparkles! The idea for the black glittered cardstock came from the little black glittered star I had done on the Ho Ho Ho card. I really like how it had turned out and I wanted to reproduce the look on something bigger, so I used Versamark and Heat 'n Stick to cover the whole background piece on this box.
Note: It is extremely hard to get anything to stick on the glitter and I had to try quite a few adhesives before finding one that worked. The sticky strip wouldn't stay put (I know - this stuff usually won't come off without ripping everything apart with it, but in this case, it just kept sliding off the glitter.) If I remember correctly, it was the Mono Multi liquid glue that finally did the trick.
