Glittery Background for Elizabeth Craft Designs Designers Challenge

Hi Friends,

It's the first Tuesday of the month and that means it's Designers Challenge day at Elizabeth Craft Designs.  This month we are challenged to make something with a glittery background and I decided to make an invitation for a special event.  The inside is still blank so the details can be added when they return from the printer.

A few tips on how I made my project if you want to make one -

The finished size is 5.5" square.  I wanted to put a glittery backing behind the Gatefold - Elegant Rose die so cut a circle that is 5.5" in diameter.  The card base was cut 5.5" square and then 2 additional pieces were cut 5.5" X 3".  Crease the side panels at 1/2".

The circle was covered with ECD Double Sided Adhesive and cut in half.  Adhesive was added to side panels but not on the 1/2' side tabs.

After removing the adhesive, ECD Microfine Glitter, Copper Rose, was added to the circle and polished.
Using the Gatefold - Elegant Rose die, cut the smaller panels lining up the die with the crease.
Peel adhesive from die cut and add to glittered panel.
Assemble card. Add one panel to back of card using the Postage Stamp Squares.  Make a hole on either side of gatefold.  String ribbon through holes and tie closed.
Have a great week and make something glittery,
