Good Afternoon! I hope you had a lovely Christmas celebrating with your family and friends. I have my Shimmery Hello card for you today
A little Shimmery Hello
There is no better way to just say ‘hello’ than to send or give a handmade card. Today’s card uses some of my favourite products plus a favourite technique.
My card base is Coastal Cabana and 210mm x 105mm then folded in half.
The next layer is our awesome Fluid Watercolor Paper. I’ve embossed it with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder then spritzed it with a mix of ink and rubbing alcohol. The colours used were Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green. To add a little more texure to my bricks I flicked some ink using the Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Write Marker.
My top and focal layer is the gorgeous panel from the Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. I love this paper pack – one side is vanilla and shimmery the other side is mat white. I stragically placed mini dimensionals behind the bird layer and adhered it to my brick background on an angle. These two layers were then adhered to my base card using Tombow Multipurpose Glue.
My sentiment is a simple ‘little hello’ stamped onto Pretty Peacock and white embossed. Those little offcuts and scraps are perfect for little sentiments such as these! I’ve finished my card off with a simple Baker’s Twine Bow and some sequins.
I gave this card to a friend who recently celebrated 11 years in the Stampin’ Up! Sydney Office. She was thrilled with the card which made my heart smile.
