Yesterday I was super excited to get my hands on some brand new Sale-a-bration freebies…there are 3 new items that will be added to the line up and my absolute favorite of these is a pack of beautiful sparkly Glimmer Papers…

If you are a glitter addict – OH MY you are in trouble!!!  These papers are GORGEOUS and come in three colors – Sweet Sugarplum (pink), Bermuda Bay (blue) and Mint Macaron (green) – let me tell you, you are going to LOVE them!  The 3 new items go live for customers on February 21st OR if you want them earlier, JOIN and you can ORDER them right NOW in your Starter Kit – details are below!

I was sooo excited I had to use some straight away and I had just the perfect project to use it on…


What do you think?  Isn’t it CUTE?!  I love how this one turned out – see the sparkle of that glittered cardstock?  It’s very hard to capture on camera but it shimmers at every angle and is simply amazing!

You will find a link to the printable/downloadable Project Sheet detailing all measurements, colors used & instructions on how to make this card below – look for the red text!

So what is the story of the Unicorn on this card?  Well, I was shopping in Target the other day for a gift card for a teenage girl’s birthday and this Unicorn one caught my eye…isn’t it cool?  Plus that purple color made me realize I could use it with Rich Razzleberry and so I just had to have it!


I love the artwork on this gift card so much that I decided to incorporate it into the actual card – and when I opened my pack of Glimmer Papers yesterday and saw the super sparkle of the Sweet Sugarplum, my idea was born…I decided to make a window through it that the Unicorn can peek out of!

Here is a close look at that window with the Unicorn peeking out…super easy to make using a scrap of black cardstock and two nesting dies that you can find in Layering Squares Framelits Dies – again, full instructions are on my Free Project Sheet – find the link at the end of this post…


I know that teenagers don’t like to be thought of as kids, but I wanted to keep some fun on this card and decided to add a little bit of a magical theme – I decided that stars for the embellies and a sentiment cloud would work well with my Unicorn…

I used a die from Stars Framelits for the big star and the small stars were cut using the Confetti Stars Punch

I made the cloud die cut around the sentiment using a die from Up & Away Framelits – there are a few different cloud dies in that set making it super versatile…


And here is the inside of the card…I did toy with adding ribbon and making a pocket on the outside of the card that the gift card could be pulled out of, but after playing I decided to go this route – it is simply attached with a few pieces of tape so that it’s easy to remove and also that it’s obvious what it is!


And here is another look…I tell ya, I just can’t get enough of that sparkle…if you are a Twilight fan, you remember how Edward’s skin looks like diamonds in the sun?  Seriously, this is what this glimmer paper looks like – whilst typing, I am sat here looking at this card on my desk and it literally SHIMMERS at any angle and in any light – I LOVE it!!!
