Punched Circle Glitter Background Tutorial

I have been working with my piles of scraps and I have came up with this glittery goodness, hope you enjoy it as much as I have. The first creation was made for Inspired Crafters

Here is the layout to make a Christmas card...

My card, so sorry for the pic but with the colored glitter it was hard to get a clear pic.
Products used...
multiple sizes of circle punches ek success
card stock scraps SU and PTI
Ink and ribbon PTI
SU scallop circle punch and word window
PTI stamp sets Merry and bright, Merry and Bright Additions
Adhesive spray

Here are some for Valentines using Target Dollar spot DP and PTI Sweet Love stamp set...

This one I used Bella Rose DP scraps and PTI Wishing You for the sentiment...

So wanna know how I did this?
1) Cut card stock to 3 3/4" by 4 1/2" (size I used for challenge card)
2) Punch various size circles from scraps of card stock or dp
3) Spray your piece of card stock with spray adhesive
4) Arrange the punched circles on the card stock (leave room between circles don't have them overlap)
5) Apply fine glitter
6) Shake off excess glitter
7) Layer your glittery goodness onto your card

Some variations
You can stamp on the card stock circles (for my challenge card I left them blank). Make various sizes for example on the bella rose card I only did the top portion.
Use card stock close to the color of glitter you are going to use.

Just a reminder to friends and family we no longer have a hooked up home so please email me at and give me a few days to check on it. If it is important please email and in the heading mark "for Mom" and our oldest can check at school during the week. Thank you;)

Ohh I love all the sparkle! Your cards look fabulous! Glad to see you had some computer time. I miss ya!

BTW...the scroll lable on my Christmas card was Spellbinders fancy lable trio (I think that is what it's called anyway).

This is a definite WOW! Sounds like you're getting lots of crafting time--makes me realize how much I could get done if I'd just stay off the computer LOL!

I LOVE the cards Sara. And lucky you at the Dollar Spot at Target. I go there and there is nothing left. It gets hit so hard and so fast here and I have 3 Targets all within 7 miles from my home (in 3 different directions). Maybe one of these days I'll go when the door opens and they will have just put the stuff out! Or maybe it's an omen because I have no room for anymore stuff! Anyway, great job on your cards! TFS
