Thought I'd share with you a card I made the other evening for a workshop demonstration - I think it's going to be hubby's valentine's card (even though it has got a bow on it and he thinks that means it's a girl's card lol!). I got very glittery while making this one...
I cased the general idea from this card I saw on SCS then changed a few bits and pieces. The background was created by stamping three different hearts onto Real Red cardstock with Versamark then adding Heat & Stick powder then red glitter - so sparkly IRL! The frame in Early Espresso around the owl panel was created with the scallop trim border and corner punch (love, love, love this effect!).
I got a bit carried away by the cuteness of it all and ended up decorating the inside as well:
To decorate the inside of a card, just take whatever bits and pieces are left from the outside (like DSP, cardstock etc) and follow the theme through onto the inside. In this case I used the dotty DSP and Crumb Cake cardstock with the scallop trim punch and I just stamped the owl onto Whisper White, added a glittery heart and layered the whole piece on Early Espresso for a bit of extra pop. Doesn't take very long to do but really gives it that extra something. don't ya think?
Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Punch Bunch, Basic Phrases
Ink: Early Espresso, Real Red, Versamark
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Confetti White, Real Red DSP
Accessories: Fine Galaxy glitter, heat & stick powder, scallop trim border and corner punch, heart to heart punch, full heart punch, word window punch, modern label punch, two-step bird punch
Thanks for stopping by!
