Hi crafters. I made an ombré card for the CAS mix up card challenge for June. I felt the need for sparkle and this is what happened. I have these glitter foam squares with adhesive on the back. I got them at the secondhand shop but I have seen them in children’s craft kits at the discount store. I had 2 golds, 2 reds and an orange so I did an ombré block. I stuck them onto a scrap of cardstock and added red fun foam to the back. I tried a stamped background but I didn’t think that was working. I used another secondhand product instead – self adhesive contact plastic like you might cover school books in. It is a red shattered foil one with great sparkle. It diecuts well and I just apply it like a sticker and burnish it down. I cut it with the Kaisercraft texture criss cross die. I added a sentiment by gold heat embossing a word from the Impression Obsession Express yourself Stamp set. I had to be careful as the contact will melt.
I will say my extra technique is diecutting but I guess the bit in the middle is more glitter/collage. I know it’s not the type of ombré that was in mind with the challenge but I couldn’t resist the bling today.
