I went a little nuts last night with glitter and napkins!
When I first started seeing these glitter napkin cards, I poo-poo’d them thinking cards made of napkins take no talent, no effort, no creativity……
Then I went to a class where we made one recently. I almost didn’t go, because I didn’t want to make cards from napkins – being a bit of a snob about it I must admit…..
I am excited to share this simple, but beautiful technique, because I think many of you might enjoy trying this method to making homemade cards that doesn’t require a lot of equipment and materials. And if you like do a “production-line” style of getting a bunch of the same thing done at once, one pack a napkins can make a ton of beautiful cards. In fact, each individual napkin makes four cards!
Besides some card stock and some pretty napkins you can get at the dollar store or craft store or wherever you might find paper products, the only other things you need are a VersaMark stamp pad, some type of adhesive tape, Heat & Stick Powder, and glitter (I used Stampin Up’s “Dazzling Diamonds” Dahling) :).
There is a great video tutorial on Youtube done by a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator from Canada, Tina Weller that you may want to watch if you are interested in learning how to do this:
Tina talks about using a specific type of Stampin’ Up adhesive sheets, but I just used double faced tape and/or the glue tape runner you can find at any craft or drug or variety stores and completely covered some white card stock with it to adhere the napkin.
I made all of these cards last night, and I pretty much love all of them! 🙂
If you haven’t bought, made, sent your holiday greeting cards, you may just want to try this fun and easy technique.
And if you are interested in purchasing any Stampin’Up products, just let me know, and I can hook you up. 🙂
And I think I am going to enter the snowman/snowflake card as another entry into The Paper Players PP224 Tic Tac Toe Challenge for White, Snowflake, & Glitter.
Have a sparkly, glitterly, dazzling day!
Cheers & Hugs,
