I love using texture and sparkle in my cards and this card that I designed to share at my next stamp club has plenty of both. I was inspired by this card on Pinterest to pull out my favorite bird die and stencils. But I decided to make the bird all sparkly with glitter and distress inks. Take a closer look at the bird (because it is so much prettier IRL):
I applied a two sided sticky sheet to white cardstock and die cut the bird (Poppy Stamps). Then I peeled of the top sheet and dumped very fine white glitter on the die cut bird. After burnishing in the glitter, I embossed the bird with a SU embossing folder and colored with a couple distress inks. On the white card base, I sponged some more distress ink through a stencil from Memory Box and then attached a twig die cut from Penny Black. I attached some black glitter tape to the side of the card, added a sentiment die from Penny Black and some sequins I colored peach with a Copic. My sparkly bird was attached with pop dots to raise her for dimension.
