Creating customized glitter to match your project is quick and easy with Glimmer Mists.

Here's how:

1. Pour some white glitter into a jar. Decide on a color you'd like to use. In these photos I used Cosmos.

2. Spray the Glimmer Mist into the jar.

3. Close the jar lid and shake the glitter around. It will collect on the side and the lid of the jar. I used a paint brush to clear it off and shook it a couple of more times. It will be wet and clumpy when you finish.

4. Let the jar sit, opened, overnight. When dry, use the paint brush to break up the clumps until you have a fine consistency. Then you're ready to go!

5 On this card, I sprayed the card base with Cosmos Glimmer Mist. Then, I added a strip of green paper and the blue border from the doily paper. I added a strip of black and white tape.
6. Next, I stitched the card edges and added the dimensional sticker.
7. I cut a portion of the gem swirl and added that. I layered the Prima flower over it.
8. Finally, I painted some Mod Podge onto the white flower and sprinkled on some of the glitter I'd made. This one was done with Hula HoopGlimmer Mist.
