The Hold on to Hope and coordinating Cross of Hope Framelits Dies are beautiful designs that offer crafters wonderful options for birthday, sympathy, and encouragement cards. Today I paired these two with Garden Impressions DSP and Pacific Point cardstock to make this uplifting card for a dear friend. And adding the Glitter Window technique enhanced this design to a higher level.
The Glitter Window technique is a fun and easy technique. You can see just how easy this technique on this tutorial at Splitcoaststampers.com – all you need to do is to create an opening in your cardstock, cover with packing tape, and apply glitter the sticky portion in the opening.
Usually when I create with this technique, I use a large square or oval opening with images behind – sort of like looking through a window when a snow storm is coming through the land. This time I decided to use the Cross of Hope Framelits Dies to create almost a stained glass window effect. I love that you can see the DSP design through the glitter in the cross too!
I used a card layout from pate 35 of the SU! Idea Book & Catalog as the inspiration for my card. I didn’t have any ruffled ribbon, so instead I used some Tear & Tape Adhesive applied to the back of my DSP and adhered scrunched up polka dot tulle ribbon to create a similar look.
The Hold on to Hope stamp set has a beautifully written piece of scripture that was perfect for the inside of this card.
Here are the items I used for today’s project:
