Hello, welcome to my blog. My share for you today is a card I am using for a sympathy card, but you could use it for any occasion. I love sparkle and bling and this card definitely has that. I have had the Rainbow Glimmer paper for awhile as it is a carry-over item from last year's annual catalog. I don't use it often, but thought I would pair it with a layer of Basic Black. I love the contrast it provides.
Rich Razzleberry: 4¼ x 11 scored at 5½ for the card base
Basic Black: 4¼ x 5½ (2 pieces) and ¾ x 5
Rainbow Glimmer paper: 3¼ x 4-9/16
Basic White: 3¼ x 4-9/16
Black Glittered Organdy ribbon: 4¼ and about 8"
- Using the Scallop Contours die, use the largest scalloped rectangle and cut both pieces of Basic Black.
- With the Meadows dies cut 2 of the images from the Rainbow Glimmer paper. On one of them, the stem was too long soi positioned my cutting plate where I wanted the stem to end so that I could have a small border at the bottom of the glimmer paper. I then used my snips and cut the stem.
- Adhere the glimmer paper to one of the Basic Black scallop rectangles.
- Cut the long skinny die from the ¾ strip of Basic Black and adhere to the glimmer paper. I used liquid glue, but you could also use adhesive sheets.
- Wrap the 4¼ piece of ribbon around the glimmer paper, going through one of the scallops on each side. Adhere to back of layer, then adhere to card base.
- Tie a bow into the 8" ribbon and adhere to card front.
- Scatter a few of the Artistry Blooms sequins to card front.
- For the inside, stamp the flower bouquet image in Coastal Cabana ink and then the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry.
- Adhere inside layer to the other Basic Black scalloped rectangle and then to inside card base.
- Stamp the flower bouquet onto your envelope as well with Coastal Cabana.
