Well, today is time for another Monday challenge over at My Craft Spots Blog, and today's challenge is all about the *bling*. A perfect chance for you to use some rhinestones, stickles, glimmer mist, maybe even some glossy accents. Did I mention the prize...The Sweet Sentiment # 1 stamp set!! Trust me--you want this.:)
Here is my card for this week...
|All of my flowers came from the Walk In|
My Garden cartridge. It is kind of hard to tell in
the picture, but I added diamond stickles to a couple
of the flower layers. I also *popped* up the flowers
with dimensionals. I kept with an odd number of
flowers for the card. The stamped sentiment is
from the Sweet Sentiments Set #2.
|For the ribbon technique, I ran a piece of crinkle ribbon|
through my sewing machine set on the longest stitch
length. After I stitched the length of the ribbon I gently
pulled on the tails of my stitching threads and it gathered
the ribbon right up. From there it was easy to stick
it to the cardstock. I ran a strip of ATG adhesive down
the center of the cardstock and then pressed the ribbon right
on top. I tucked the ends behind the strip of green cardstock
and then attached the green strip to the card base. Leaving
the inside nice and clean. Hope that makes sense.
