Getting back to my Altenew Educator Certification classes – Today I am presenting a card based on the “Let It Shine” instruction.  This is one of my favorite classes – I love glitter and shine.  For my featured card, I stamped some of the filler layers from the Altenew “Golden Garden” stamp set in versamark.   I then applied some gold glitter embossing powder and heated it until it was set.  I cut it down to 4 x 5 1/4 inches and mounted it on some GinaKDesign gold cardstock.

I had spent the day doing some die cutting and my cards spotlight some of my results.  The Happy is cut from both from a gold stardream and a shiny gold cardstock and then layered with the shiny gold on top.  You can see that in this picture.  This gave it a shadow appearance and a bit of texture.
The “Happy” die and sentiment are from the “Halftone Happy” set.  I applied several hologram gold sequins from Cartwright Sequins,  and my signature gold dragonfly charm.

I had made a couple other cards with the gold embossing of the “Golden Garden” set and a bordered “Hello” set from Pink and Main.

For the first one, I just put a shiny gold border down the left side to set off all the beautiful gold sparkles.

This card was the same layout, but framed with a shiny gold mat.

I hope you have enjoyed this sparkly gold blog today.  I really had a fun time with it
