I watched a video of Jennifer McGuire's on No Mess Glitter Die Cuts and fell in love with this die set from My Favorite Things called Geek is Chic. I didn't add glitter to mine because I didn't have the double sided tape that she used, but here is what I did. I first cut one pair of glasses out of white card stock. I inked the bottom half of the glasses with navy ink and the top with purple ink. I then cut four pairs of glasses from navy and purple card stock and glued them together. I glued the inked pair to the top and then coated it with Glossy Accents. After it dried, I applied another coat of Glossy Accents. These glasses are so stinking cute and shiny. You would never know they were made of paper. I just realized as I'm writing this post that while the green is supposed to be olive, I had in my mind lime, so my green is a little on the light side. I black embossed the sentiment onto Vellum.
