I have a simple, yet elegant red & white shimmery congratulations card to share with you today!
Supplies: Spellbinders Rose Creations, Impression Obsession floral heart, memory box foliage, Justrite Congratulations stamp, Memento Tuxedo black ink, 110# white cardstock for base, 140# cold press watercolor paper, vellum, red spray ink, perfect pearls pink spray ink, grape distress ink, stickles glitter (for center of rose), rhinestone bling
Directions: Make a 5″ x 7″ cardbase from white cardstock, cut a second piece of cardstock 4.5″ x 6.5″ and distress the edges. (I used my Zutter Distress it all tool. Cut all your Rose pieces- cut two of the smallest and next smallest for a full middle. Lay your heart die on the upper portion of your smaller piece of distress cardstock, die cut. Ink your heart and roses petals with red spray ink, pink perfect pearls ink, and when dry, edge the rose with distress ink grape. Shape your flowers using a stylus or a bone folder. I used a bone folder. Adhere layers together, I use hot glue so it goes fast and stays in place. Put some stickles in the center of your rose. Cut foliage from vellum. Do a dry run with your placement- so you have everything where you want it before you glue it down. Use pop dots to raise up distressed panel. Use wet glue or spray adhesive for the heart. Put hot glue at the bottom corner of the heart, lay your vellum leaves in place and put your flower on. Stamp your sentiment, add some rhinestones for bling! Done! 🙂 Simple. Elegant.
Enjoy your day!
