Glitter trend | Bella Blvd

Who doesn't love a nice splash of glitter? I know I do! Especially on cards — it adds a little extra effort and makes the recipient feel special and loved. 

Some of us on the Bella Blvd creative team are exploring glitter today on the blog. Here are the two cards I made to highlight glitter on cards.

I love the idea of using glitter on only a single part of a larger pattern. For this card, I used gold glitter on a rain cloud to juxtapose the rainy scene with a bright moment. This is a great way to send a smile or hopeful wish to someone who is having a hard time.

Supplies: Simply Spring (Pattern paper: Eggstravaganza, Dancing in the Rain); Color Chaos (Pattern paper: Scallop Strandz)

The starry night scene on this fun pattern paper was just begging for glitter on the stars. It makes them twinkle and gives a subtle little shimmer to the overall card. 

Supplies: Camp Out (Pattern paper: Under the Stars, Camp Out Borders), Chipboard Icons, Trinkets; Star Student (Pattern paper: Brainiac); Color Chaos (Pattern paper: Pickle Juice Strandz)
