Hello with a touch of Pink Sparkle

Did you spot something on this card that I very rarely use? Glitter! Yip, i have used glitter and it's not just a little sprinkling either. It's a whole panel on the background of the Hello Die. I don't like the stuff, in fact I hate the stuff. It's not the feel I dislike, it's the fact it covers you and goes everywhere no matter how care you are. That being said, I am going to try and use it more - he says. I cut a Matt and later panel for the background and placed a piece of double sided sheet on top and trimmed the excess. I then removed the backing sheet and rubbed Hunkydory's Butterfly Trails glitter in the adhesive panel before dusting off the excess. The Butterfly Trails work perfectly with this card as it has some pinks and reds in the glitter so matches the colour theme perfectly.  
 The majority of this card is made by products from Stix2. The Hammered White card and the Pink Gingham card is by Stix2, aswell as the satin ribbons and of course all the adhesives. The Hammered White card stock gives it an extra but of dimension in addition to the bows. 
 What always help to give extra height and dimension is the 3D foam pads used. With this card I have used the 3mm A4 foam pad sheets. I love the A4 sheets as you can cut your own foam pads to the size you wish. Wether it's small or extra large coverage, it's up to you. If you have a large area to cover and get frustrated peeling off all the backings then you just cut one large pad to the size you want and the jobs done - that easy. 
 The Pink card stock is by Bazzill Basics and is also a texture card stock. It has been used in the insert too. The White card used for the sentiment and the insert has been printed on to White Smooth card also by Bazzill Basics. Adding a few White and Pink pearls just ties all the colours together.
