hb2u

I’ve had one heck of a couple of weeks with swim activities and practices, company, ear infections and more, so I’m struggling to get back into the swing of things.  This birthday card has been done for quite a while.  I just haven’t had a chance to get it here on my blog.  (Way too much going on…)

Here I’ve  used a really cool new product — Mess Free Glitter (GlitterFast Design Kit) from Zoom Creative –along with several Die-namics from My Favorite Things.

I used Layered Label Die-namics on top of a Fishtail Flag STAX (with flag cut on both ends), By the Letters, By the Numbers and Simply Scallops Small.

The hb2u panel is raised on foam tape and there are foam boosters beneath the “2.”

The glittery letters and numbers were SUPER easy and 100% mess free.  (That’s the best part.  I love sparkly glitter but hate the mess.)  I simply die-cut the letters and numbers from cardstock, then again from Zoom’s double sided adhesive sheet.  I layered the sticky sheet atop the cardstock, removed the top protective sheet and placed a small square of the glitter paper over top and rubbed.  VERY cool.  (And of course, it’s MUCH more sparkly in person.)  You can see a how to video HERE.

Zoom also has lots of really cute Picture Kits for children.  (Just fyi.)  :)

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Big Greetings and added a bit of bling.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I’m hoping to get back to more frequent posting very soon.  Have a great day!
