December 2014 Technique - Glitter Window Card

Our class this month made Glitter Window Cards, I think I surprised a few ladies at how easy this great technique is.  This technique I learnt years ago from my upline, in fact, it was the first technique that I learnt.  Who knew that simple packing tape and some Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds could make such beautiful cards!!

This is a quick and easy technique for a sparkly card. Punch one or more windows into your cardstock. Lay Window cardstock over neutral cardstock, flip punched cardstock over and lay packing tape on backside with sticky side showing to the front. Sprinkle sticky side with Glitter.
