More Sparkly Cards Without the Mess of Glitter!

I love this card and it was so easy to make as I show in my newest video here. I simply sponged autumn or sunset colors on ink blending them and then applied Versamark and Nuvo Glitter Embossing Powder (Shimmering Pearl) all over the background and heat set with my heat gun. No mess and lots of sparkle on that background! I die cut Memory Box's Enchanted Deer Collage and rounded all the corners before attaching both to a gold card base. I used a favorite Quietfire Design die on the center of the card: 

The sunset scene on this sidestep card was created the same way- sponging and blending inks, then adding Nuvo sparkly embossing powder. I started with a pre-scored and cut side step cardbase from The Paper Cut. The Cat-tail Sunset and Dancing Dragonfly Collage dies are from Memory Box, the Congrats die is by Stamploration and the stamped sentiment is from Gina K Designs. Here is a close up look at the sparkle and a side view of the side step card fold:

To see how easy it is to create the sparkle without the glitter mess, come watch the newest video here, and thanks for helping me #share the joy of creativity!

I am entering the first card in the current challenge at Scrapy Land.
