The wording was achieved by printing it out at the correct size and traced through with the Quickie glue pen, allowing that to dry overnight before applying the glitter, and brushing off the excess. Then I turned it over and embossed from the back. that has the effect of pushing the glitter out and creating more of a shine.
The problems continued when I scanned the whole card to keep a record of it. I had not noticed that the scanner was set on an extra high resolution from when I was scanning in tiny family photos for use later. So, without me realising it, the file was huge, and gave the computer indigestion, not allowing me to edit and straighten the image. Then, of course, Blogger refused to upload it until I had shrunk it down drastically.
Anyway, it is done now and the card is ready to send. Then I can settle down to sorting out all the cards I need for April and May, with a nice bit of playing thrown in for good measure.
