Greetings friends. For my card today, I used the new Floral Ornament die as well as some glitter and Copic markers.
I first cut the die from gold metallic paper and placed some super-sticky tape (from Elizabeth Crafts) behind the openings and covered the entire piece with ultra fine glitter. This is what the project then looked like:
Next, I dabbed various glitter sections with an assortment of Copic markers. This technique works because I used really strong tape that held the glitter in place and used ultrafine glitter that didn't mess up my marker nibs. Here is the colored ornament. I hope you can see that the glitter shines through the Copic marker:
To finish the card, I popped up the ornament with foam tape, added a bow, and stamped a sentiment from the Holiday Words Cling set.
Don't forget to visit the other designers for more inspiration and chances to win prizes!
Beautiful and so shimmery! Love the ornament die!
This ornament is so lovely, great technique too!
This is really a beautiful, detailed die and you've enhanced it even further by adding your coloring on the glitter. I love the various shades of green. What a cool idea! Thanks for the share.
Love the colors and glitter you used! Super card! TFS!
Absolutely stunning! I actually bought my COPIC markers because of a class where we colored over EC glitter! Now I need to go do that!
I am loving all the cards with this ornament die - so pretty
The floral ornament is gorgeous.
Love the way you made it!!
I've made some of the Elizabeth Craft
ornaments with the fine glitter.
Hadn't thought about using that
technique on die cuts. Going to
try that out. Makes a beautiful
thanks for sharing.
Great ornament ! Perfect for holidays greetings.
SO LOVELY! A SUPER WAY to add sparkle & color! You're BRAVER THAN I!!! LOL AND I LOVE PINK for Christmas too!!! This IS A BEAUTIFUL DIE!!! ;)
Beautiful card. Looks like hand painted stained glass. ❤️!
What a super idea to use your copics on the glitter, it makes a wonderfull card.
Lovely Xmas ornament. I am so glad you included your instructions as I would never have thought to use fine glitter and then coloring it with copics! It really does look like a stained glass ornament1
Beautiful ornament. Love all the glitter.
This is so pretty. I like the colors and sparkle.
Such a neat finished card. Really like the look and thinking about what to use to give it more stiffness for a real tree ornament!
This is gorgeous and I had no idea you could use copic markers to customize glitter! What a beautiful effect.

That die is so pretty! I've done a similar technique with line stickers but I like the idea of doing it with dies so you never have to worry about running out. And you can pick your color each time. I think this die looks pretty with even just the plain white glitter!!!
This die is gorgeous, and so is your card! Love the glitter with the copics. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing.
