I love how all the elements came together making one very special card.
Wild About You collection, 20% off for all of January!....
Glitter Silver lips on Red Cardstock
Glitter Black Journaling tags
Glitter Red Letter Stickers
Silver Bells mini dews drops
Shimmer diamond dew drops
Doily's, chipboard banner and chandelier by Gina's Designs
White and black acrylic paint, Black spritzer, Gold leafing pen, Damask design washi tape, Maroon velvet trim, Super fine gold glitter, glue adhesive )I use Tombo), foam tape, a 7.5" x 5.5" envelope and something to pick up the dew drops.
As you lay them out the set, add a few sprinkles of the glitter onto the chipboard banner.
Cut your Valentine cardstock to 6"x8". Fold in half to make a card.
The doily may buckle up, just press down on it with a tissue, dabbing excess ink as you work.
When both the doily and banner is dry, you now can start to assemble the card.
Place a strip of damask washi tape at the top of the card. Add a thin line of your glue and place the velvet trim.
Glue the larger of the two doilies onto the left side of the card. Add some foam tape and the black doily. Add the painted banner with your glue.
Carefully add the letters, LOVE.
Run the gold leafing pen along the outside of the card.
When ready, the best way to add the glitter is...first sprinkle as much as you can onto the glue. Then use a dry paintbrush to 'sweep' up the excess and turn over the chandelier to lightly press the glue exposed areas into the glitter. Keep doing this until all areas are coated.
Accent the chandelier with the mini dew drops.
Glue chandelier onto card, don't' worry if any hangs over, the over sized envelope will take care of that.
Place your journal tag inside the card.
Thanks for coming by, I hope you have enjoyed my creation!
