Bring on the Glitter!

Happy Labor Day, to my USA friends!  I hope you have gotten to enjoy a nice, long holiday weekend - and perhaps had a little time for crafting.  This weekend also marks the end of summer, and the welcome to I thought it would be appropriate to share a pumpkin card with you.
As you might suspect, I am now completely covered in glitter (as well as my studio floor!). But, I'm going to tell you how I created this sparkly goodness.
I used the Fall Harvest One die from Cheery Lynn Designs, as the focal point of this card.  I cut it from orange cardstock.  Now, for the magical part....I cut a piece of black cardstock, large enough for a border and I cut a piece of Scor-Pal tape(sheet size), the same size as my pumpkins.
I removed one side of the backing from the Scor-tape and centered it on the black paper.  Then remove the top layer and apply the pumpkins. I started coloring the pumpkins by sprinkling ultra-fine glitter in those areas.I would burnish the glitter to the Scor-Tape with my finger, and then flip the card straight over to remove the excess glitter.  Next. I colored the leaves in the same manner, and finally the background.  If you find that you have the wrong color in an area, you can put a thin area of Art Glitter Dries Clear adhesive (using the fine metal tip), and reapply the correct glitter color.

I finished the card with a border from the Celtic Whimsey.
We really appreciated all of the fabulous entries we had last week, and hope that you will join us again  at Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge. This week we want you to stitch it up (real or faux). Looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

Beautiful card! Glitter is fun to play with but not so fun to clean up. That was a great technique you used to make your card.
