This is the last of the cards I made for the Sparkle & Shine class. There are still a few techniques that I will get round to trying at some point, but I was just about glittered out by the time I got to this one 🙂
I created an ombre effect on the hexagons by using three different colours of glitter paste, mixing them on my craft mat as I worked my way down the panel (I only had two blue/green pastes so the third colour was made by mixing some white glitter paste with Distress ink).
The hearts were die-cut from a piece of card that had had gilding paste swiped across it with a cloth.
Once the glitter paste was thoroughly dry, I die-cut the panel to give it that zigzag edge. I heat embossed the sentiment on some coloured vellum and wrapped it over the top edge of the panel. The bottom end of the vellum strip is held in place by two layered hearts and the completed panel was popped up on a card base using some fun foam. A third heart flat on the card base finished it off nicely.
