Altenew Stacked Diamonds and Papertrey Ink Hugs Sparkle card

Hello everyone and I hope you are well and happy. We're here to mark the start of a new weekend and new challenge over at Simply Create Too

and this time our challenge is to get all sparkly and 'Use glitter'!

 I began with the Altenew Stacked Diamonds Cover Plate die cut from white card.

I took a piece of card the same size and added double-sided sticky paper to it. I removed the backing paper and stuck it to the back of the die-cut leaving the adhesive exposed in all the gaps. Pale green glitter was then poured over the card and rubbed into all the gaps to burnish it down.

I die-cut three of the Joanna Sheen Echinacea flower dies and stacked them before adding some clear glitter to the veins, and then stuck them to the background.

 For the sentiment, I used the Papertrey Ink Hugs die, stacked it, and snipped off the S letter. I then added glitter pen to it and coated it with glossy accents, which you can see better in the top photo.

I'd like to play along at

Thanks for stopping by.

Gorgeous card. I adore how these colours are simultaneously relaxing and wonderfully uplifting at the same time.
