Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series features products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (and more). This is a no-mess way to add glitter accents! This paper is embedded with small pieces of glitter. Glitter won’t brush off or flake off so there’s no clean up. You get 24 6×6 glittered sheets: 8 each of 3 colors (Iridescent, light green, turquoise)
This paper is so much fun to add accents for a little touch of sparkle to any project. I punched balloons to go with the Party Pandas for this fun fold birthday card inspired by a card Linda Heller shared that was designed by Janet Munden.
Party Pandas is the most popular Sale-A-Bration stamp set! You can get it for FREE with a qualifying order through March 31.
I love these adorable pandas! They remind me of Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei. I live in Maryland just an hour outside Washington D.C. where you can visit the giant pandas at the National Zoo. My Pre-K students and I even watch these giant pandas right in our classroom through Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Panda Cams. Click on the link below if you want to see what Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei are up to today. (Be forewarned this could get addictive!)
Earlier today I snapped these photos as I watched them eat their lunch. (Now you know how I really spend my day. LOL)
I love how this card opens for an upright version of a Double Z-Fold card.
Here’s what it looks like from the side. You can see how it gets it’s Double Z-Fold name.
This is a fun card to make. It is a little wider than others I have shared so here’s the measurements:
Lemon Lime Twist: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.
Basic Black: 3 1/4 x 10, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.
Whisper White: 3 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.
Bubbles & Fizz DSP: 1 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

Did you notice the colors of my balloons? Are you wondering where I got the Calypso Coral Glimmer Paper? Here’s a cool tip…You can make any color glimmer paper you want with the Iridescent Glimmer Paper, reinkers, and an Aqua Painter. Just add a few drops of reinker in the lid of your ink pad and use the Aqua Painter to color the Iridescent Glimmer Paper. (*You never want to pick up ink directly from your pad using the Aqua Painter or Blender Pens.) You want to make sure to go in one direction so you don’t ruin the bristles on your Aqua Painter. Let it dry before cutting or punching. Now you can add a little glimmer to any project!
Here’s another look at today’s card and matching envelope.

Who doesn’t love a Z-fold card? I can’t think of a single soul. Who doesn’t love the sparkle of glimmer paper? My upline Brian, but he’s creative and wonderful so I overlook that tiny flaw. Finally who doesn’t love pandas, especially baby pandas? Nobody that’s who! This was a can’t miss card because you merged 3 things people love. I love the colors and dsp as well. I will definitely be CASE’ing this card. Awesome job Jeanie
Even Brian might like this glitter….it’s no mess! I know he has an aversion to glitter! I agree it is a tiny flaw that we must overlook because he is “King”. LOL
Could you tell me what set of stamps you got the little present from that the Panda is holding?
Jeanie, you are brilliant! Love the idea of coloring the glimmer paper! And the card is adorable! Great surprise of more pandas when you open it!!! Now I am off to watch some pandas!
Oh my gosh! I find myself checking in on them so much! It is so fun to see their sleeping positions sometimes too…flat out sprawling sometimes, rolled in a ball other times. I keep the link to their camera open on my computer. I think it is so cool!!! We should plan a trip to go visit them!!!
Hi Jeanie, it’s after 10 PM here so so late for me ….just wanted to say I love this card. I have this panda stamps it and now I can’t wait to ink it up tomorrow.
I am sure you will have fun with the pandas!
Super cute card. I can see why the pandas are so popular in sale-a-bration. Love the glimmer balloons. Thanks for the tip on how to color the paper.
Thank you Susan! I love to color ribbon too to make it work! Stampin’ Up! rocks with color coordination!
Hooray, another fun fold card! How cute are those pandas?! The threesome seems tailor-made for the Z-fold. Great tip on coloring the glimmer paper, too. I’ll have to remember that with my weekly after-school kids craft group–they are always wowed by things like that. They have quite a list of “Jeanie Inspirations” under their belts already thanks to your always clear tips and photos. I keep telling them the only thing they’ve learned from ME is how to CASE a master!
You are too kind! I want to hear more about your after school craft group. Hoping we can meet up and chat in Hartford in April! Is Amy going too?
What is grander than one panda – three makes it grandiose! Just take a gander at this fine trio frolicking just like the real pandas with the glamour of glimmer paper to boot! I don’t use the glimmer paper too much – I can’t decide if I am hoarding it, just not a sparkling type of gal, or just what the problem is. I do know when I have used it I still get a little glitter falling off probably when I cut or punch it out. Anyway, the card is so fun and I will have to try this fold sometime as it works perfectly for this trio. The DSP paper was made to go with this fun card!
P.S. if anyone follows the Eagle Cam from Decorah, IA – she has one egg in the nest.
Love the pandas with the Z-fold card. SO CUTE!
Cute card. I am using the Bella & Friends stamp set. Wondered if the Whisper White on the bottom cuts should be 2-1/2 x 2-1/2”, cutting two, instead of 1” x 2-1/2”.
Same, I cut 1X 2 1/2 it is too small.
