If you don't have any glittery cardstock for die cutting, make some by applying rows of glittery washi tape to scrap cardstock. Make sure your rows abutt one another precisely - no overlap or spaces between. Die cut as usual and voila! You have fancy-pants glittery goodness that nobody will ever suspect is a tape-covered scrap of cardstock.
Thanks for stopping and have a blessed day!
