Glitter and Stencils? Yes Please!

Hi friends! This card design packs a punch and it will get you using some stencils you may have in your stash! Remember back in the day when the only way we could emboss paper was with a brass stencil, stylus and a light box? Well, I am betting some of you still have those stencils sitting around.


This technique is fun and pretty easy but I will warn you that we are using glitter so don’t blame me if you are a little more sparkly that usual afterward LOL! Watch the video to see how it’s done!

Glitter directions:

  1. Coat back of metal stencil with bar soap or coconut oil. Apply adhesive sheet to cardstock and remove backing and stick stencil to adhesive.
  2. Sprinkle on color one, place backing sheet over glitter with stencil still in place and press it down. Dump excess back in glitter jar.
  3. Remove stencil and add the contrasting color. Pour off excess and press with backing paper again.
  4. Burnish firmly with backing paper to lock the glitter in place, trim the panel and add it to your card.

I hope you give this technique a try on your next card! Happy crafting!

  1. FYI – I would advise taking the Arteza glitter tubes and cardboard out of the box when you first get them (you can pull it all out together). Then use a wide tape such as packing tape or duct tape all over the inside bottom of the box because the glitter will seep thru the folded areas in the bottom of the box. Mine arrived with one empty tube and I had glitter all over the place. Just want to save others from having to clean up glitter everywhere.


  2. I love your demonstrators, and have followed many, but can tell me, WHY, you are using glitter and encouraging others to do so. This is so bad for the environment.
