For the past couple of weeks we have been working with Glitter Foam from Leane Creatief to create cards with a super glittering surface that is clean and easy to work with (no glitter cleanup required!). This weekend we are offering 25% off all products from Leane Creatief (ends July 14th 2019), so it's the perfect time to try out this fun product.
Leane Creatief has a small selection of Patch Dies, which work beautifully with Glitter Foam to create a multi-coloured glittering surface for your projects. I chose to work with the Christmas Tree Patch Die to make a quick and easy Christmas Card.
The die set includes a background die to cut the shape as well as a die to cut the patchwork pieces and a die to cut the stars. It also includes a pot for the Christmas tree, if you want to add that detail.
To make this card, start by cutting out the background die on a piece of brown cardstock. Then, cut the patchwork tree die using multiple colours of Glitter Foam. You can cut out the whole tree and mix and match to make multiple cards. The die will cut the foam as easily as cardstock, I didn't need to adjust my tension however you may need to add a shim depending on your machine.
Once you've cut out your pieces and laid them out in a pattern that you like, simply glue them down onto the background piece to hold them all together.
I used a die-cut card that we had on hand in our classroom as my card base. To add a bit more shine without overpowering my Glitter Foam, I decided to use Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes for the background and for my stars. I simply attached some thick double-sided tape to a piece of cardstock, applied my Glitter Flakes using the rough edge of a stamp cleaning tool, then used a die to cut out the stars in gold and a background piece in silver.
I finished off my card with a Season's Greetings sticker and dabbed on some Cosmic Shimmer Twinkles
