AECP:: Let it Shine


If there ever was a class that had me get items out from my crafty stash that I haven't ever used, it is the Let it Shine online card class that I took as part of the Altenew Educator Certification Program! Carissa, the instructor, was so energetic and offered so many fun ideas to really make your cards shine! The class showcased many tips to use glitter...loose glitter with double sided tape, glitter paper, foil and then even offered tips on application of all shiny embellishments.


Carissa showcased how to use glitter in small doses to make a big impact. I used some silver glitter paper, die cut a frame from it, and mounted woodgrain paper behind the panel. I thought that the two textures played well together. I then stamped an arrangement with images from Beautiful Day in Shades of Purple ink. I thought that with the different textures, then a monochromatic arrangement would only accent the glitter and woodgrain, not distract. I also added some subtle score lines on the card base and finished with a two step stamped sentiment from Paint A Flower: Carnations Outline.

  1. This is just gorgeous! I have to admit that the glitter lesson gave me hives! I love the sparkle of glitter but can't handle the mess! The swiffer cloth is pretty genius!
