I’ve already shared with you two ways of making cards with silhouetted letters – stamping paint with a pencil eraser and using an ink pad and a patterned stamp. This week I will share the final way that I have used this technique, and it’s a bit brighter and bolder! This time I used glitter glue!
If you want to make a card like this, then you will need:
- Card blank (mine is DL size)
- Post-it notes
- Scissors or a craft knife
- Glitter glue (in a selection of colours)
I covered the method for making the letters (from post-it notes) and aligning them on the card in this post, so I won’t repeat that here, just head on over to the post and start from the beginning until you have something that looks like this:
All I did next was to carefully cover my letters with glitter glue. I found that squeezing some out of the tube onto the card and then spreading it out with the tip of the tube worked really well. As you can see, I used a range of colours to make my design really bright! Then all you have to do is peel off the post-it letters and leave the whole thing to dry.
I found that the glitter glue made my card a little bit wrinkled, but I guess that’s unavoidable unless you use a really thick card blank.
What do you think? Will you have a go yourself? Maybe you could do a pattern in the glitter glue, such as circles or waves?! That might look pretty cool. Let me know what you come up with!
Thanks for reading!
