Glitter Window technique

I don't use glitter very often. I end with the stuff EVERYWHERE! After making this card I saw a piece of glitter on the bathroom floor!!!! I swear, I get the stuff everywhere and it's harder than poo to get cleaned up! At least it is for me! I know it's hard to tell from the picture but there is glitter all over the punched out part where the text is! This technique is fairly simple (except for getting glitter everywhere!). First I cut the strip of Daffodil Delight and stamped the little cupcakes all over it. Then, I punched the shape out. Then, I laid the Daffodil Delight strip over the Whisper White strip and stamped the text where it would show through the window. Then, I flipped the Daffodil Delight piece over and placed a piece of clear packing tape on the back of it. Then, I flipped it back over so that the stamped side was up. Then, I just dumped the glitter over the tape showing through the "window". Rub the glitter in (hence, glitter ALL over my hand which then ended up on my face and everywhere else). Dump off the excess glitter. Then, I lined up my piece of Whisper White so that the stamped text showed through and glued it in place. Then, it's a simple matter of finishing off the card! EASY but MESSY (at least for me!) Here are the items I used to make this card.

I'd SO love to hear your comments on my projects! Tell me if you like it, don't like it or what you think I should do to make it better!
