Sparkly Chevron Birthday Card

Top of the morning everyone.  I trust you are having a great day.  I have a super fun project that was inspired by Jennifer McGuire.  You can see her original video by clicking here.  My daughter really likes teal and brown and she also likes chevrons.  She recently celebrated her 19th birthday so I decided I would use teal along with the brand new LG bundle from 3 Girl JAM to create a sparkly fun birthday card for her.  I used silver to replace the brown.


The video will walk you through the glitter techniques as well as the card making process, so I am just going to list the supplies I used here:

Cricut Close to my Heart Art Philosophy cartridge and stamp set bundle
Teal and Grey cardstock from my stash
Paper Trey Ink white cardstock (card base)
Perfect medium and Pewter Perfect Pearls
Silver Glitter from EK Success
Teal glitter from a scrapbooking store (? brand)
9" Xyron
Heidi Swapp Chevron stencil
ATG and foam tape
LG Bundle from 3 Girl JAM (Click on the picture below to be taken to the store.  Be sure to use the code "CP10" to receive a discount on your entire purchase.)

If you are interested in the technique used to create the glitter background, please click on the video below.  It is a bit long, but it walks you through the entire card making process.


Thanks for stopping by today.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
