How to Make Different Sparkle Backgrounds on Handmade Cards

by Lindsay Adreon

Glittery backgrounds are the best backgrounds! I love anything glittery and the Sparkle MBoss is quickly becoming one of my favorite new embossing powders. It is a clear embossing powder with holographic glitter mixed into it. It’s perfect to add over any backgrounds because it doesn’t add any color, just shine and sparkle! You can watch the video tutorial to see two different ways to make your backgrounds sparkle!
