Always & Forever Glittered Chipboard Wedding Card by Tracey S.

It's Tracey S. here to share a wedding card with you. Of course bling is an important part of wedding decor, so I've glittered my Leaky Shed Studio chipboard pieces to add an elegant sparkly touch to my card. I've added touches of purple since it is one of the wedding colors.

Always & Forever

Tips and Techniques
Leaky Shed Studio has a large variety of styles in their chipboard. I wanted this card to have an elegant feel, so I selected this Large Damask piece to layer behind my flower. I'm always cutting my chipboard into pieces and this is no exception. I cut the damask into two pieces with the flower hiding the cut edges.

A tutorial for my Crushed Voile Peony can be found HERE.

Here's a close-up where you can see how glittered this is. It is such an easy technique. I painted the Large Damask piece with black gesso, but any coordinating paint will work. Once dry, I spread glue across the piece and sprinkled with fine black glitter. My favorite glue for glitter applications is Art Institute Designer Dries Clear, which really holds the glitter in place.

I also glittered one of the Medium #2 Hearts as an accent. I've done lots of layering, stitching and even some fussy cutting here and inked some of the edges to highlight.

One final view.
