How to make glitter lettering 1

When I think of the rain, I think of the color blue. I drew inspiration for the card I’m sharing today from the yellow on the April Showers Mood Board created by Daniella Hayes earlier this week. Join our Inspiration Challenge! Just visit THIS BLOG POST, create something inspired by the mood board, and then  link it up using the linky tool at the bottom of the post.

I created a gold and blue card inspired by the mood board above, drawing heavily on the yellow color and rainy day theme. This card has a fun and unique technique – how to make glitter lettering. Many companies offer pretty printed journaling cards, like this one from DCWV. I thought this journaling card would make a great handmade greeting card but I needed to add some color somehow.

Using the Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue, I traced the lettering of some of the words on the journaling card. Then I sprinkled blue glitter on top and allowed it to dry. The result is glittery, dimensional lettering that really makes the card POP!

I added the crepe paper ruffle to the back of the journaling card with Tombow Xtreme Adhesive. Then I mounted the journaling card to the card front with Tombow Foam Tape. Finally, I added three buttons to the card with Tombow Adhesive Dots.

A card like this is certain to brighten anyone’s day. Consider using Tombow MONO Multi Liquid Glue to add extra dimension and glitter to your journaling cards and paper craft projects.

    Very nice Jennifer! You must have a very steady hand to be able to trace those letters so well! Love the color accents!
