Embossed Glitter Technique

The glitter is so hard to see on photos. *sigh* Ok let's talk glitter for a minute. My favorite cards when I was a kid were the ones that shimmered. Now I know that people hate to work with glitter because it gets everywhere. This technique is one way to use it without it getting all over the place.

Simply mix your glitter with embossing powder. My formula is one part glitter to three parts embossing powder. You just have to use really fine glitter for this to work.

Yes, you can buy embossing powder with glitter in it, but I tend to skip buying things that have a single purpose. I like to use the clear embossing powder over colored ink or mixed with other things to get the effect without investing in a huge variety of colors and types.

Thanks for looking!


  1. the colors on this are so pretty together! and I know what you mean about glitter in pix - but I know this is marvy irl! :)

  2. Love the colors that you chose! The layout is cool , too!!

  3. That's such a great idea!
    But hey, having it in the carpets for 3 months afterwards is part of the fun of glitter, isn't it? LOL!
