Glittery Thanks--inspired by Jennifer McGuire


The amazing fantabulous Jennifer McGuire posted a video HERE just yesterday and after I watched it (three times in a row), I hopped straight to my craft desk to whip this little number up.

i used picfx on my iphone to get the bokkah :)

Its nowhere near as cute as Jennifers, but it was so fun to make. I used some really cheap (and old) glitter that I had around, and I think it would be pretty easy to do a whole set of these.

The trick seems to be burnishing (rubbing very well) over the glitter once it's stuck down. I put a piece of paper over the top, then used my bone folder to do it. Worked a charm. Now very little of the glitter comes off if you rub your fingers over the card. I'm sure with the finer glitter Jennifer used, it would work even better.

Be sure to give it a try!

Thanks for looking :)
