A Sparkly card

May 8, 2012

Here is a card I made a while ago and never got around to sharing with you.

I started with scored and folded Whisper White card. I cut Red Glimmer paper 7cm wide and Basic Black card stock 8cm wide. I matched each edge and then cut using the Adorning Accents Edgelets. First one side and then the other so that the shapes matched and you can see a nice Basic Black edge alongside the Real Red Glimmer paper.
 I stamped the image from the Apothecary Art stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink. I coloured the image using Real Red and Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and a Blender Pen.  The image is cut using the matching size die from the Labels Collection Framelits.  I covered the image with Versamark ink and then poured over  equal parts of Dazzling Diamonds and Heat & Stick Powder and used the Heat Gun to set it and to make it all sparkly. I attached the image to Basic Black card stock cut with the next size larger Labels Collection Framelits.
The image panel is attached to the card front using dimensionals.
I actually made this card when the Autumn/Winter Mini Catalogue was released.  I’d love to hear what you think.
Bye for now, Kris.

    It is a gorgeous card, Kris! I love the idea of mixing dazzling diamonds and heat and stick powder to get the sparkly accent. I’m guessing there is much less glitter everywhere with this technique.
