I just finished up my cards for our 2013 Holi-D.I.Y. card exchange, and I am so happy with the way they turned out! The simple cards are adorned with a sparkly glittered banner greeting, and they couldn’t be prettier!
- Folded blank cards
- Chipboard letters
- Baker’s twine
- Clear-drying glue
- Recollections Glitter (from Michael’s)
- Washi tape (optional)
Michaels Recollections glitter is available exclusively at Michaels stores is available in lots of incredible colors and textures (very fine, chunky and tinsel). You can buy the Recollections glitters individually or in packs (prices start at $3.99 – don’t forget your coupons!). If you’re indecisive like me, the packs are perfect for projects where you want to use an assortment of colors, but can’t choose which ones are your favorites!
Use a dot of glue or small piece of washi tape to attach each end of a short length of baker’s twine to the front of the card. Use a generous dab of glue on the back of the glittered letters to adhere them to the twine.
Add additional embellishments as desired, and your sparkly cards are ready to spread some holiday joy and cheer! They may have been easy peasy to put together, but they totally pack a chic and festive punch!
