Glittery Summery Fun...

Hello Summer! Here in Texas we've already kicked off summer with temps over 100! A fun way to spread a little summer happiness is to make a quick card and add some summer fun effects.

For this card I wanted the look of the beach with some dimension. There are a lot of cool texture items on the market to create the look of sand, but I wanted to use what I had on hand, which was glitter! To make the little strip of sand I freehand cut a strip of paper and sprinked white glitter on it and then misted it with Studio Calico Barnwood Mister Huey and also Shimmerz bronze mist! I also cut another strip of paper and dabbed it with blue paint and sprinkled white glitter to create the water. The clouds are actually made from glitter paper. So, are you going to get out your glitter and add some cool summer fun to a layout or card? I hope so! It's quick, easy, and fun! And using spritz on white glitter makes it limitless!


  1. CUTE! I love all the glitter!

  2. I'm not a fan of glitter, but this is VERY CUTE...I might even try to re-create it!

  3. I'm in Texas too...and yes it's soooo hot. Love your adorable card. :)

  4. Cute! I recently pulled out my glitter and plan to use it a little bit more! Thanks for the idea.
