This week at the Mod Squad Challenge we were to make a valentine card using glitter and at least one heart. Well, believe me, I got my glitter on with this challenge, My floor looks great too! LOL
I am also including this in the Sparkle N Sprinkle Monthly Challenge.
I decided to try a technique with lace and glitter to make a background for my card. I used a Shell Pink G1022 and Burgundy Glitz G1047 which are both from Sparkle N Sprinkle. They are known for all their wonderful glitters and embossing powders.
First take sticker paper, remove the outer paper so that the sticky portion is up. Carefully lay your piece of lace down on that sticker paper, being sure to adhere it well. Then use one of the glitters for the first layer. And, to make sure it sticks well, I take my fingers and rub it in. Carefully remove the lace. You will see exposed the design from the lace. Then you add the second color of glitter and again, rub it in well. Voila! You have a wonderful background. Now this would be perfect alone with just a ribbon, but I since it was a Valentine I wanted to add a special greeting and some hearts.
I used the sentiment and hearts from the Clearly Gina K. Lots of Lines set by Beth Silaika. I stamped them in Gina K. Designs Cranberry Tart dye ink onto the pink card stock. My base card is a dark burgundy color so I used the pink card stock for my layers too. As another added embellishement I added the burgundy ribbon and bow.
You know I got so involved in this card, that I forgot to eat lunch. It was about 1:30 when my tummy began to complain, that I realized I had not eaten. I never spend this much time on a card and seldom miss a meal, but I really like how it turned out. I hope you do too.
Well, lunch is ready! Thanks for stopping by!
