Glittery Leaf!

This is a card we made at stamp club. The leaf is die cut with Sizzix die Leaves #2 from a sheet of SU Sticky Pages. Sticky Pages are 12 x 12 sheets of sticky tape or as some people call it red line tape. Sticky Pages have 3 layers: a red film, sticky tape, and another layer of red film.

To make the leaf cut wavy lines in the top red film layer of the leaf using a craft knife. Remove one section of red film and sprinkle glitter, then the second section and sprinkle another color of glitter, then the third section.
It helps if you rub your embossing buddy over the red film before you start so the glitter doesn't stick to the red film as much. Also be careful to tap off the excess glitter before you move to the next color or you will mix your glitter.
Someone posted a great tutorial for this
technique but (as always!) I can't remember
who and I can't find it. If I do I will post a link.Note: Found it! Thanks anonymous! Barb Mullikin has a step by step video tutorial HERE.
