Making Your Own Glitter Cardstock - Wednesdays with Wow!

Good morning, Lovelies :)
I'm back with another edition of Wednesdays with Wow! and some embossing fun!

If you're like me, you LOVE sparkle, but not the mess. You might also adore glittery die-cuts, but glittery cardstock can get expensive, not to mention, hard to match color-wise. So I've recently started making my own! Before starting on this card, I pulled out a sheet of white cardstock, and used my Embossing Pad to cover it as evenly as possible. I sprinkled on some Platinum Sparkle embossing powder, and heat-set the powder with my heating tool from the backside, so as to keep all the sparkles intact. If it looks a little splotchy, do not fret, just repeat the steps to fill in any gaps. You could also use a sheet adhesive, but be careful about heating it. I've shared a post here about how I use adhesive and embossing powder.

Once my sparkly cardstock was ready, I used a fave sentiment die to cut out the word. 
I also stamped up some TSM florals in my favorite colors, and added a touch of embossing with the accent stamp layers. I used the Caribbean Charm trio for the leaves (color: Dominica), and Midas Touch for the flower centers. Lastly, I also added a touch of white embossing, using the flower layer stamps. 

A few scallops on the card base, give this card such a feminine finish.
I absolutely love the dimension and sparkle that DIY embossed cardstock adds to cards...I'll be sharing another embossing post on Wednesday, hope you can join!
