"We've Got Your Number" Challenge

I haven't really been able to do any scrapbooking or card making for some time now.  I have gradually been getting back into working with paper.  I missed it.  I also found I needed some sort of inspiration. Enter the Simon Says Stamps Challenges. The Monday Challenge was "We've Got Your Number".  Rather simple.  The requirement is that your project had to have a number.  I chose to make a graduation card using the school colors of my home town, red and black.

Supplies list:

SVG Cuts file: Grad Gift Card Holder (modified)
Silhouette Cameo Machine
DCWV The Everlasting Love Stack
Craft Fancy Bronze Shimmer Paper
Creative Memories White Shimmer Paper
Creative Memories Black Shimmer Paper
Red Foil
Red Ribbon
Xyron Adhesive
Fiskars Thin Glue Dots

Mixed Glitter Technique for Elegant Background Papers by Heartfelt Creations

Superb tutorial from Emma Lou!  I have been practicing this some this morning.  It makes a super huge difference!!

Here are the must haves to accomplish this look.

Designer Dries Clear AdhesiveMetal Tip for Adhesive Bottles Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter

Now look hard. There are THREE images!!  See the tiny spots of glitter?

This is one of my practice pieces from this morning.  I used a portion of a paper from the Flowering Dogwood Paper Collection.   I shared it with my daughter and she agrees it lends a 3D look to your paper!   

I have also reached a decision.  I have now tried both a Funnel Tray  and a coffee filter.  I find that the coffee filter is far easier to use in recovering left over glitter. Still on the fence over which is easier with embossing powders.  

Back to practicing for me!
