Today I'm sharing a project with microfine glitters, featuring the Burnished Velvet technique! The amazing velvety texture and silken shimmery look achieved is stunning, in real life, and difficult to capture on camera...
Pulling it together is actually a lot easier than it looks--kind of like a glitter puzzle! The trick is die cutting the Be Creative Tape liner, but not cutting through the entire piece of card stock. I find that working with 80# Neenah solar white card stock, and a single piece of typing paper as a shim yields the best consistent results; keep in mind however, that every die cutting machine is calibrated differently and if the sandwich I share here doesn't work for your machine, you may need to tweak it a little.
- Multi-purpose Platform, all tabs closed
- Cutting Pad
- Card stock with tape, liner paper side up
- Typing paper (you should be able to see the printed words on the liner paper through the typing paper)
- Position dies on top
- Cutting Pad
- Run your sandwich through your Big Shot; remove the dies and discard the typing paper as you will no longer need it.
- Remove one section of liner paper, exposing the adhesive underneath. Tweezers can help!
- Apply Microfine glitter and burnish into the adhesive with your finger tips. Brush away excess with fingers as well as a soft brush. I like working over a coffee filter so I can funnel the excess back into the jar, and I typically use a clean coffee filter for each color so I can avoid any cross contamination of colors.
- Continue removing one section of linger paper at a time, and repeating the above process until all areas have been coated with glitter.
