Hello! Leah here with you today and I’m going to share with you how you can quickly and easily embellish your cards with just a few supplies you probably already have. Let’s get started!

You’ll need a stamp set of choice, I used the Magnolias set and have it stamped and colored with Copics. Then you’ll need some double sided tape of any width you’d like, I’m using Scor Tape at 1/4″ wide, some buttons, liquid adhesive and loose glitter.

For my borders I just did three strips of my tape across the bottom of my cardstock panel and then removed the top paper, poured the loose glitter on, tapped off the excess, and viola! You have glitter borders. This is my favorite as there is no dry time!

For my glitter buttons I used liquid adhesive and first adhered my buttons to where I wanted them and then filled in the top of the button with glue, poured on more loose glitter, tapped off the excess and let it dry. The neat thing with making your own glitter embellishments is that you can have them all match!

Here is my finished card. Such a fun way to add some sparkle and fun to your cards!

    It is a beautiful card. I love your tip on adding sparkle in the same color with glitter. The glitter really made the card pop. Your coloring of the flowers is awesome. Anyone would love receiving this card.
