Hi Everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I have a DIY Background using Silk Microfine Glitter and the new Spider Web die set from Joset Designs. Below you will find the steps to create your own background card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim Black Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″. Diecut Fitted Indented Rectangles using the trimmed cardstock.
Step 3 – Diecut Spider Web using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Adhere Pixie Spray to the backside to create a stencil. Adhere the stencil on top of the diecut created from Step 2.
Step 4 – Create your own Glitter Paste by mixing Silk Microfine Glitter Copper Rose and Texture Paste Transparent Gloss. Apply the mix onto the Cardstock with the stencil. Once completely covered remove the stencil and let dry.
Step 5 – Adhere the Background created from Step 4 to the card front using Foam Tape.
Step 6 – Diecut Spider Web (spiders x 3) and adhere to card front using Foam Squares. I added Shimmer using a Shimmer Pen for added sparkle.
Step 7 – Stamp Spooky sentiment onto Black Soft Finish Cardstock using Versamark. Sprinkle Gold Embossing powder and remove the excess. Heat set it with a heat tool.
Step 8 – Diecut Labels 1 using the sentiment created from Step 7. Adhere to card using Foam Tape.
This Glitter Paste technique can be used for any occasion by simply changing the color of the Glitter. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
