It's my dear friend Earlene's birthday this week, so my project today was a card for this very special person. I wanted it very (did I say VERY) sparkle-ey.
I just received my package of 1/8" scor-tape (www.scor-pal.com) and was dying to try it out. I used it to "border" the various layers of cardstock and apply clear glitter on almost every layer. I really liked how easy it made these lines of glitter and how well the glitter adheres to the tape. I can see that this is going to be a product that I use alot of!!!
Detail of layering and excessive use of glitter (if there is such a thing).
I die-cut the flowers using my Cricut and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge, in various sizes the just kind of mixed them up. I watched a video about using a mat and stylus to shape the flowers (basically break down the fiber in the paper) and didn't have the tool (another item I would love, but, alas, made due without). I dug out an old mouse pad and a bit out of my tool box - voila - not too shabby. I was pleasantly surprised at the results.
I will remember to change the date on my camera as soon as I finish this post though (lol) - oops!
I have the "recipe" for this card with supplies if anyone is interested and will be more than happy to post it for you.
