Glitter Window Card

Before I explain the Stampin’ project………..I gotta brag on our football team!  We won our playoff game on Saturday!!!!  We had so much fun traveling to Corsicana to cheer on the Leapords — except for the very late trip home that night!  It made for a very tiring day yesterday, but we survived.  Our next game is in Huntsville….even farther!  I am not sure if I can make the trip or not and I’m pretty bummed about the thought of not being there.  However, we’ll have to see how some other family things play out this week before I can make my final decision.  Victory is so, so sweet!  We are so excited and it was such a great way to end a very sad week for our community. 

This Glitter Window Card is one of our club projects this month.  My ladies will be coming either tonight or tomorrow night, and I think this will really WOW! them.  This is what I call an “oldie, but goodie” — this technique is one that I have been doing for many years as a demonstrator, but it always gets stunning results.  It is made by using clear packing tape and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  The packing tape has been placed on the Bashful Blue rectangle with the sticky side of the tape facing out to the front of the card.  Then you apply glitter to the tape and you end up with this frosty, sparkly window!  glitter window snowmen 1

You can use any of your circle or square punches to make your “window”.  This rectangle was made by punching the square punch about 2 1/2 times across the Bashful Blue cardstock.  I have several other cards with glitter windows, so later in the week I will show some other ideas.  Hope you will try this out!  Super easy and just perfect for snowmen and snowflakes!
