I recently needed to make a card for a friend’s wedding. I hadn’t yet tried the Silhouette Glitter Kit, so I decided this was the perfect occasion to try it out. After all, if you can’t glitter a wedding, what can you glitter?
Supplies – Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee (London Market 6×6). Ink: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress (Antique Linen). Pens: Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Pens (Black Soot, Warm Lipstick). Stamps: Lawn Fawn (Sophie’s Sentiments). Die Cutting Supplies: Silhouette Portrait Machine, Silhouette Glitter Kit, Silhouette Cut File (2 Wedding Icons by Lori Whitlock).
I used my Silhouette Portrait machine to cut the shape of the rings out of the double-sided adhesive paper that came in the kit. I peeled the first side and stuck the shape down and then peeled to reveal the adhesive for the glitter. I opened the glitter to shake it onto the adhesive and was absolutely blown away at how fine it was. The texture is beautiful and it stuck wonderfully with very full coverage.
