Extending the holidays by spreading a little bit more holiday cheer with my new card today. Sorry I've been neglecting my blog. I had calendars to make for Christmas presents and it consumes my life. I didn't start until December because once I start it takes over all other craft projects until they are done. I still have four more I would like to do but there's no real pressure to get them done like the last 12 I did.
For today's card I took a piece of patterned paper and inked the edges with distress ink and an ink blender. I then sprayed that whole piece with water and gold Perfect Pearls. The semi white corner die cuts were cut out using my Cricut. I added a little bit of green to them to have them blend with the paper. The center piece is Bazzill cardstock that I stamped with Versa Mark ink and heat embossed the Hero Arts stamp with gold embossing powder by Stamp N Plus. I made the strips of glitter by adhering the double sided tape to the card front and then pouring glitter over the exposed side.
The poinsettia die cuts are out of a rusty red color specialty paper that I inked and sprayed with the gold Perfect Pearls by Ranger. The die cut is by Prickley Pear. After I die cut a bunch of them out I bent the edges to make them look crimped. The centers are made up of the micro beads or the dew drops or these gold metal dots with adhesive on them by The Paper Studio.
I hope to back up and running full force after this weekend. Thanks for stopping by.
