I followed Heather's technique to glitter the "happy" die cut. The rest of the sentiment is stamped on vellum with white pigment ink and embossed with Ranger Holographic embossing powder to extend the glittery look of the big "happy".
I wanted a little more glitter on the card and had watched Jennifer Rzasa's tutorial after following the link on Ardyth's blog (tell me I am not the only one that can accidently lose an hour or so following links between blogs).
I didn't want the whole card sparkling, so cut my cover plate die cut in half before adding the glitter - my intent was for more of a gradient look, but that didn't happen the way I envisioned.
I am also linking this card to Seize the Birthday where the topping this challenge is to color - does it count it I colored with glitter?
