I needed to make a birthday card for my sister-in-law and was so excited to try all the new products. I used the Stamp Set 318 Stained Glass Rounds, these are so pretty and when you apply that beautiful glitter it is just stunning. The glitter I used were: Bubblegum #G1088, Raspberry Soda #1G052, Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter #GM2000 , and Elegant Emerald #G1011.
I thought I would add a butterfly and grabbed my butterfly from Flourishes Botanical Bookplates. Using the same glitter as the flowers, I used a glue pen to add the glitter to the wings. The leaves were cut using Sizzix's Flowers, Branches and Leaves Set #656064 and glittered with Elegant Emerald glitter.
The top and bottom borders was created using Tear-ific Tape, for the bottom I used 3/4' and layered with 1/8' tape. Lay the 3/4' down first, remove the protective cover and add the 1/8' in the middle and leave protective cover on. I used Raspberry Soda on the 3/4' and rubbed with finger to cover the tape. Once that is covered remove the protective cover on the 1/8' and cover with glitter ( I used Elegant Emerald glitter), rub with finger to cover tape. For the top I used 1/4' and 1/8' and repeated the same procedure as the bottom. This really makes a nice border to your project and you can coordinate with colors on your project.
The sentiment was from the same Flourishes, Botanical Bookplate and I embossed with Cherry Cosmic Semi-Trans Embossing, this was my first time using this embossing powder and I just love the look. It is so pretty with that little bit of sparkle!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, and remember to KEEP STAMPING...Belinda
