Foil Play DT Challenge: glittered cards from Phree

Phree has produced these two stunning glittered cards for the Foil Play Design Team Challenge. Both cards are stamped and glittered, using ultra fine art glitters.

The card above was made using the Floral Spray Themeplate from Elusive Images. Phree stamped and then heat embossed the image onto black card using silver embossing powder, then applied the glitters using a Sakura Quickie Glue Pen. The image was mounted onto silver mirror card and then onto pearlescent card in a lovely amethyst colour that co-ordinates perfectly with the colours of the glitter.

The card below was made by stamping and heat embossing the snowflake image 3 times. Phree then applied pastel blue glitter inside the embossed outline using a Sakura Quickie Glue pen to "colour in" the area and then sprinkling on the glitter. Once the glue was dry, Phree covered the snowflake with a layer of Glossy Accents to seal in the glitter and to give more dimension. The greeting was stamped and heat embossed with a stamp from Dimension Fourth. All the elements were inked round the edge using ink from a Petal Point Liquid Chalk pad and then mounted onto silver mirror card. The backing paper on the card is from a Crafters Companion CD and was also edged with the same ink as the snowflake and greetings elements.

Thank you, Phree for these beautiful cards! Check out Phree's inspirational blog for more comments on the making of these two cards, along with many other gorgeous projects that she has made.
