...totally love this card!!
Happy Friday (woohooo!!) to everyone!
Can you believer it? I think this is a record for me! A new post every day this week! Don't get used to it...I can't guarantee it will continue...I've just had a very wonderfully productive week! Feels good. Devoting my time to my work. A work that I Love! I can see the progression I am making, even just in the cards from this week. Thinking I'm getting better is one thing...but to see it is even more motivating and encouraging! (Could just be me :) )
Ok back to the card. While on vacation a few weeks ago (the good one...not the sad one...) I went to a bunch of yard sales and at one of them I picked up a pack of glitter. Finally got to use it today! And I think I will be brushing glitter of my table/projects and pulling it out of my hair for quite awhile now :) But I love the stuff!
Tie the Knot cartridge. I stamped a little swirl pattern all over it and then clear embossed it. With both of them clear embossed, the shine on both of them went so well together.
Here's a pic without any of the details so you can better see what I mean:
The sentiment "I Do" is also cut from Tie the Knot. I cut the top layer twice and the shadow layer once, glued them all together, covered the top with glitter and then mounted them with dimensional tape to the frame.
Art Philosophy cartridge. I tried 2 different ways at glittering them. The big one I glittered before I rolled it. It worked but I rubbed a lot of the glitter off while getting it rolled and flattened. So the smaller two I rolled and then glittered....probably just as much work as the first one...but I didn't lose as much glitter...all though because I wasn't wiping it all off it's kind of excessive on the flowers instead of being a dusting of glitter...so not sure which way I like best...
They still look awesome though :)
I added a pearl bead to each of the centers and then some pearls in the punched border for added bling. I think to top pearls are a little too big, but I didn't have anything smaller and I didn't want to use gems.
By far my favorite card this week.
Hopefully I can keep this upward trip going :)
