I've been doing a little experimenting, trying to see if I can make my own glimmer paste. I have some Dreamweaver's translucent embossing paste and I wanted to make a pretty textured background for my card. I took about a tablespoon of the paste and added some Martha Stewart green glitter, about a teaspoon. I didn't measure it, but when I mixed it, it was very green. I used a stencil and pallet knife to apply the paste to my card and let it dry. I was thrilled at the result. I will definitely use this technique again. the best thing is no glitter mess coming off the card.

I stamped Altenew's One-Of-A-Kind mini flower on watercolor paper, colored it with my Zig clean color pens and fussy cut it out. I used a spellbinders die, and dimensional tape to pop-up the flower on the die. Then I used a 1" piece of white paper, stamped One-Of-A-Kind, and used my Ranger distress ink (Picked Raspberry) and my blender tool to color the strip and the edges of the frame. Then popped up the front panel on a white card with foam.
