Hi!  Shelly here with a card I made for the World Card Making Blog Hop sponsored by Operation Write Home this weekend.  The cards for the soldiers need to be Glitter free and flat so the troops do not have to fill out customs forms.  How to make the card- not too flat?  Add shimmer- but how with no glitter???

I DO still add glitz to my cards even though no glitter is allowed….. I used shimmery cardstock from Paper Temptress, Metallic thread in my sewing machine and Sakura Gelly roll pen on this card.

This is a digital image colored with Copics and Sakura Gelly Roll pen- since the glitter does not come off of the paper onto your hands- it is allowed on the OWH cards.  I used ‘Out of the Box’ and Wisped Frames techniques’ on the card.

Here is a close-up of the shimmer achieved by using Paper Temptress cardstock:

Isn’t this Gold Sparkle cardstock fabulous??? Yes- the cards for the soldiers are a season ahead- so Christmas cards are being sent out now……You know it is only 85 days until Christmas………!

Card uses:

Digi sentiment and image Christmas Puppy from McMahon Five Designs

Copic markers, Nestabilities, SU DSP

Thanks for stopping by today!
