Striking Valentine Hearts & Glitter Window Tutorial

Hi everyone. Hope your having a great weekend. We've been very busy so far with a childrens craft birthday party, a panto involving my daughter and the usual round of weekend clubs. However I found a few minutes to share a project with you.
I decided recently to have a go at the very easy glitter window technique and here's an example and mini tutorial. It's a process that lends itself well to give a little sparkle to your projects very simply. Here I've also used Crystal Effects to give dimension and shine to the hearts in the top row. The hearts punch has been used along with a stamp from Sealed with a Kiss for the embossed image at the bottom and inside the card a cute little heart from Hello Again.
Punch out the shape you wish to have as your glitter window.



On the reverse put scotch tape to cover the openings created by the punch.


Turn over again and liberally sprinkle glitter onto the scotch tape showing. I've used the red from our fab Fine Galaxy Glitter. A little goes a long way.



Pat it gently with your finger to ensure that all the tape is covered and this may, in the light, look a little thin, but once you adhere your window onto your project you will see that the true colour of the glitter stands out.



You can adhere your glitter window onto your project and enjoy a little sparkle.
It's easy so give it a try.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll be back soon.
Hugs Zx
