Adding Glitter with an Embossing Folder

Stampin up Canada Gifts of Christmas Card



I usually make a special card for my parents at Christmas. And this is it. Don’t tell them!  I am going to add it to the new recordable sound card from Stampin’ Up! and let the kids and the dog record a personal message for their grandparents. 

This card was lots of fun to make but what a mess. If you don’t like glitter everywhere, work carefully!

To clean the embossing folder once you are finished, just wipe it clean with a damp cloth and let it sit open overnight.

    Beautiful Card. This is something I will try. Does not seem hard to do at all.

    GREAT video and I love the effect – WOW! Your card is beautiful! Thanks so much for the easy-to-follow instructions. It has made me think differently about my embossing folders and what I can do other than just embossing.

    What a lovely idea; and such an elegant, but simple card.

    Still loving this technique Dar. Do you know if it works with the glass glitter we now sell or would you have to use the heat and stick powder for that?

    Love the card. I am about to try it now. I am wondering what is the best way to clean the embossing folders once you use this technique.
