Brighten Someone's Day with the Bad Day Stamp

Hi Crafters,
Justine here today with a video tutorial for making cards to lift someone up. I enjoy making cards like this to have on hand to give someone a pick me up! 

I stamped (4) 1 1/2' white squares with various images from the Bad Day Stamp set from Create a Smile. I coloured them in with Copic Markers and backed them up with glitter paper. I added it to a piece of patterned paper from the Sending Sunshine Paper Pack and mounted it on a square card base.

When thinking of adding glitter paper to a card, you have to ask yourself, what is the purpose? Is it to accent the card or steal the show? If it is just an accent, then small amounts can be used like on this card. If it is to steal the show, try a bold glitter background.

Don't forget to link your projects featuring Create a Smile stamps over on the sidebar! We love to see what you make!

See you in January!
