Glittered Background




One of my most favorite things to use with glitter is Sticky Paper!  For today's tip I am going to show you how easy Sticky Paper makes background glittering!  For this project I am using a frame from the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge which I cut out at 4 3/4".  I cut my sticky paper just smaller than the frame. 
Remove the adhesive covering and apply the sticky paper to the frame, with the sticky side facing up through the frame.
Next, we add our glitter!  Don't be shy, sprinkle on a lot to ensure you have full coverage and shake off the excess to return to the container.
 
I finished the frame by tracing the detail with the Quickie Glue pen and adding Crystal Glitter Glitz!  Now we just need to add our glittery frame to our card and embellish!
 
Supplies:
Glitter:  Glitz in Chinese Firecraker and Crystal (P K Glitz)
Adhesive:  Sticky Paper (P K Glitz) and 1/4" Square Zapdots (Helmar)
Glue Pen:  Quickie Glue Pen (Sakura)
Cardstock:  Primary Textured Cardstock (Momenta)
Die Cut:  Shootstr-S Frame, Stand and Salute (Provo Craft)
Sticker:  The Freedom Collection (Reminisce)
Misc Fibers

How quick was that for a glittered background!?
