Did you see the gorgeous new Microfine Glitter palettes from Elizabeth Craft Designs?  They just released 3 collections of five coordinating colored glitters and they are seriously crush worth.  Today, I am playing around with the Earth Glitter Palette and the Lake Scene die set.

Step 1: Cover a 6×6 sheet of Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock with Double Side Adhesive sheet.

Step 2: Run the Lake Scene die through a die cutting machine.  Do not let the die separate.  I quickly added several rows of 10mm Double adhesive to the back and added the die cut to another sheet of 6×6 Dove Gray Soft Finish Cardstock.

Step 3: Pull up the sky and the water reflection barrier of the adhesive.  Add Ice Teal Glitter.

Step 4: Pull up the rest of the water, clipping with scissors where needed the adhesive barrier and add Vintage Teal Glitter.

And there is the final card, in all it’s glitter fashion.  I know this is a card for a man, but I feel the colors of the glitter keeps the card masculine.
