Tips & Tricks Friday - Any Colour Glimmer Paper

My favourite colour for Glimmer Paper is Silver with Red coming a close second for Christmas projects, then there's also Champagne if you wanted the look of gold.

But you can have any colour that you want by colouring your glimmer paper with ink pads, markers, ink refills etc.

My ten year old son Cam likes to make Birthday cards for his friends that reflect the type of party that they are having.  The latest one with a Lazer Strike party and needed lots of shimmery bling.

Cam graciously agreed to let me photograph him colouring in his Silver Glimmer Paper scallop circle with Stampin' Write Markers.

Here's his finished card.  The glimmer paper takes longer to dry than normal cardstock.  Cam didn't realise that, as you can see by the smudges in the middle.

Everything used to make this project can be purchased through me. Click on the 'Shop 24/7' button below or Email me to place your order.
