Online Card Class--Day 7

Hi!  I didn't know if I would have time to get my card for Day 7 done in time, but I did.  I don't have alphabet dies, however my Cricut Explore filled in just fine to cut some letters for me.

My inspiration was Jennifer McGuire's 2nd card with the word Celebrate in rainbow colors.  I used her technique for lining up the letters by using the gridlines on my cutting mat to line them up.  I then put a piece of extra sticky tape on top, flipped them all over, applied my glue to the back and then adhered them to my card.

I really had fun making this card!  I mixed a dab of embossing paste with each ink color.  I then spread each color in narrow strips over the embossing die onto the paper.  (I taped the paper with the die over it onto my craft sheet before beginning.)  After removing the die, I sprinkled crystal glitter on the embossing paste before it dried.
I tried to get an angle to show the glitter.

Here's a closeup to show the layered letters and glitter.
I cut five sets of letters and layered them all together for the dimension.  I used various glitters in colors that were similar to the ink colors I blended into the embossing paste.

I really enjoyed this messy process!  :)  I so appreciate the comments I've received over the course of these lessons.  Thank you!!!
