Using up your Stash- Glitter and and Glitz Gel

If you are joining us for the "Use Your Stash Blog Hop" you are right on track. WELCOME! You should be coming from Rachel's Blog. There are 9 participants this month. If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on Rachel's Blog.

Let's get started. Today I am showcasing a Joy Fold card I made for a card swap I am in. I used the glitter to highlight within the card.

 This is the front of the card. It is held shut by the surf board. While the picture it is hard to tell I used glitter on the word sunshine. This was achieved by using Versamark over the stamped image "sunshine" then poured glitter over the versamark.

when you open it up I left it clean for any type of message to be written. To give it a little something I took my glitter glitz and put it in the white section of the turtle's shell. (again with the picture it may be hard to see.)
