Glittery Cuttlebug - a little "How-To"

I joined a challenge on an SU-based egroup this week for cards that glitter. I drew Leigh's name (no pressure there!). This idea -- Glittered Cuttlebug -- was something I found on Sarah Bevard's blog (Craftaholics Anonymous) this morning. I thought it would be great for Leigh's card. I also know that Leigh loves ribbon, so I built the card's colors around it.

To make your Glittery Cuttlebug Card:

  1. Run cardstock and embossing folder through the Cuttlebug.

  2. Gently rub Pigment Ink over raised areas.

  3. Dump on Stamp and Stick Powder and Remove Excess.

  4. Heat according to manufacturer instructions (usually until it just gets shiny).

  5. Pour on the Glitter; remove excess.

  6. Heat set (not necessary, but it does blow off the extra glitter!!!)

I hope she likes it!

Try this card and let me see what you do! Leave a link in the comments or simply email me a .jpeg image (TJ members, you can put them on the group) and I will put them up here!
