Inkspirations Sketch Challenge #55 - Glittery 21!

Hithere, are you ready for another great challenge this week?  Here is the fun sketch that Keesh has for everyone to play with:-

 & here is what I have done with it:-

I have to 'fess up & say I have several jars of beautiful AED glitter!  Sadly, it hasn't been used much of late, so I thought I would pull it out & "BLING" up this twenty-first card.  

To make the glittery letters I stamped the letters onto "JAC" paper (a double sided adhesive that has a liner paper on either side).  I peeled the back liner off the JAC paper & stuck the group of letters onto some teal cardstock.  Then I did some more "crazy lady smokin' scissors stuff" & cut out out each individual letter using small sharp scissors & a scalpel.  I adhered each letter to the background panel & then peeled off each top liner & added the glitter, tapped off the excess & voila, gorgeous glittery letters!

Here's some step by step photos, with the an extra letter I made to go on a matching pillow box:-

& here is a close up so you can see the letters, stitching & embellie details:-

This was a fun idea to create & could be used for lots of different occasions that have 9 letters, ie., EIGHTEEN, CHRISTMAS, VALENTINE!  What else can you think of?
