Pheww. This has required some patience! The PARTY is 5 layers thick & after cutting I had to adhere them all very carefully. Then applied gloss. Waited for gloss to dry. When dry, realised had applied gloss too thick & it was as wrinkly as... a wrinkly thing. Applied Diamond Stickles to hide the wrinkles (wish that worked on me!). Waited for stickles to dry. Not quite long enough. Smudged stickles, had to re-apply. When stickles dry, put on more gloss. Back in the airing cupboard. Finally finish the card & take a picture, you can barely see the glitter, & the gloss is invisible. But it looks great IRL, pinkie promise!
It is almost a reverse of the Muse card - bold black letters with a splash of colour.

No new sheets of cardstock were harmed during the production of the above card. All the die-cuts were cut from scrap. Tiny pieces that should perhaps have gone in the bin. But they were saved thanks to my new scrap management system:
A swing file box that sits neatly on my desk, made from a few old boxes, paper & bamboo skewers. I have another one the same for all my neutral scraps. They work a treat - my desk has never been tidier.
