Cards with Glitter Paper – Holly McMillen & a Customer Creation!

We’re starting the week off with a bang! We have two VERY glittery cards to share today. The first was created by Holly using a verse from The Beatitudes and the second is a birthday card sent in by Peggy Bates, one of our customers. I just had to smile at the similarities between these two cards. Holly and Peggy don’t know each other and have never seen the card from the other. As they say, great minds DO think alike. Take a look:

Matthew56Easter 500462

Holly took Matthew 5:6 and used it on her Easter card today along with the glittery ribbon!

That ribbon sure is a great match to the glitter paper.

I’d like to point out that this glitter paper is rather thin so it doesn’t add a lot of bulk to the card, but it sure does add a lot of pizzazz!

You can find Holly’s post here.

Holly used:

Stamps: Blessings/Beatitudes 1 by Stamp Simply Clear Stamps

Paper: Heidi Swapp Glitter Paper -  8.5″ pad

White Cardstock

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black

Dies: Spellbinders A2 Tranquil Moments

Ribbon: May Arts 1.5″ Sheer w/Glitter Dots – Light Fuchsia

Adhesives: Scor Tape, 3D Foam Squares, Liquid Glue


Now, let’s take a look at the card Peggy sent us:

Peggy Bates Birthday Blessings 440586

Isn’t it pretty, and do you see the similarities?

Both use a large die, both use the glitter paper behind the die, both use a pretty sentiment as the focal image in the center.


Peggy sent the card to us saying that Birthday Blessings has become her go-to set. We are SO happy to hear that, Peggy!

Thanks for sending this in, Peggy. Much appreciated.
