There are a few things I do miss about living in Virginia, one being having the space to actually do crafty things, another being the ability to go to Michaels on a weekly basis. Don’t get me wrong, I do love nyc but sometimes you just want to get your craft on. This technique is one of my favorites and I love using for notes and cards.

Originally, I thought of this technique while making graduation cards for some friends. Going to a college that has purple and gold as its colors definitely insured that I spent many years trying to figure out the best way to incorporate gold glitter into things. Hands down this is the best way I have found. While on a trip to Michaels I stumbled upon this amazing glitter duck tape. You can also find it on Amazon or other sites and have it shipped to you. So simple and it actually has a glitter texture but the glitter does not fall off at all!

I decided to use the tape and stencil out a chevron pattern for the cards but you could use the tape in so many ways. I have punched glitter balloons and stenciled letters, so many options.
