Half Glitter Large Letters Birthday Card

Hi there!
It's another wet day here but I have managed to get plenty of jobs done this week including all the washing so my weekend off will be a tiny bit more of a weekend off ;-)
But right now let's see the card for today. I made this card made for our daughters birthday in March and I used some SaB papers (Bubbles and Fizz) with a simple half glittered name and a touch of black to make it pop! Let's see...
 To make these half glitter letters I added three stacked strips of Myths and Magic washi to thick white card, wide enough to get all the letters across, before die cutting with large letter framelits. I then die cut the name twice more from thick white card and layered the letters up to make them stand out on the card.
 This sentiment is from the (retiring) Happiest Of Days stamp set, heat embossed in white onto black card. I also added a little silver tinsel trim (which is in the clearance rack now for just £3.30 for a pack with both red and silver! Go!)
 I was chatting with a fellow demo recently about why adding a little black to some cards was a good choice (she didn't agree) but I think it gives this card is perfect for showing how black can give your project just a little lift, don't you?
Stacked die cuts are much easier than dimensionals for thin/small shapes like this.
Adding a little DSP inside ties it all together. I don't always do this but I really should do it more as often as all you need is a couple of little offcuts that usually end up in the bin anyway ;-)
 And that's it, the birthday girl (said she) loved her card and now, what do you think?
That's all from me for today, I'm going to get editing some more pics now so I will be back to share another card with you tomorrow :-)
'Till then, happy stamping!
