A very simple birthday card with some glitz.
The sparkly turquoise and browns band is make
from white glue and various embossing powders and
Pearlex. Simply spread a coating of white glue, the
cheapest you can find will work just fine, and dab on
various embossing powders, Pearex powder, glitter
or anything shiny and pretty that will stick in the glue.
Now heat with your heat gun.
You will note that the thicker the glue
the more bubbles and texture you will get.
Since this is a messy process I make up a bunch at once
and pull them out to use as needed.
I used brown card stock in the layering
and for the EK Success punched border.
