Make glittered window-style Christmas cards

This artsy crafty video tutorial will show you how to make glittered window-style cards. The "glittered window" technique to card-making is basically just adding glitter to shipping tape.

Instructions for a Merry Christmas holiday card:

Cut a "Real Red" cardstock to create a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" card base. Randomly stamp the smallest flower of the "Season of Joy" stamp set using Real Red Classic Ink.

Follow the tutorial to create the glitter window. Stamp the flower using Real Red ink on to any type of white cardstock.

Cut the square window panel to 1 7/8". Mat over 2" "Real Red" cardstock then mat over 2 3/8 "Old Olive" cardstock.

Add white brads to the corners on the "window" panel. Adhere to the card base using dimensionals or foam tape.

Cut an "Old Olive" cardstock to 1 3/8" Stamp the "swirl" image using "Real Red" ink. Mat over a 1 5/8" Real Red cardstock then mat over a 1 7/8" white cardstock.

Stamp "Merry Christmas" sentiment on to a "Real Red" cardstock using "Basic Black" ink. Punch with the "Key Tag" punch. Mat over "Old Olive cardstock and trim around the "Key Tag" shape approximately 1/8" around the edge. Mat over white cardstock and trim around the "Key Tag" shape. Adhere to the right of the swirl image using dimensionals or foam tape.

This is the glittered window with the image behind it. Can you see the pretty glitters? This technique is a great way to add glitter to your image, especially, if you don't have embossing powder or "Heat and Stick" powder.
