hope you've had a great weekend.
I'm pleased to say I've made all my
swaps, and they're all labelled and bagged up ready for Amsterdam.
also made one for each of my March customers, and I've made the video
ready for next Sunday.
Just two more videos to make and I'm ready for
card uses a Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper dragon fly that had been die
cut for a previous project but not used.
It already had the Pink
Pirouette backing behind the wings - stamped with a stamp from the
Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set - so that decided the colour of my card!
started with a base of Pink Pirouette Cardstock (CS) with a layer of
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.
The top layer is a sheet of Pink
Pirouette CS which has been dry embossed with the Petal Burst Embossing
I adhered this layer to the Glimmer Paper using Glue Dots, and
then I adhered it to the card base using Tombow.
some Pink Pirouette CS, I die cut the smaller of the two dies in the
Detailed Floral Thinlits Dies.
I cut it to the width to fit the width
of the top embossed layer.
Then I took a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer
Paper and used the cutting edge die that's in the set of Thinlits.
I cut a
piece approxiamately 1/8" taller than the decorative Pink Pirouette die
cut, so I had an edge appearing a little bit higher.
I adhered this die cut to the Glimmer Paper using Glue Dots, and
then adhered the two pieces to the card front using Tombow.
Pink Pirouette Ink, I stamped the sentiment on a piece of Pink
Pirouette CS and then dipped it into Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set
this using my Heat Tool, and die cut it using the Stitched Shapes Oval
die no. 2.
I layered it onto a scalloped Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper oval I'd die
cut using the Layering Oval Framelits Dies, scallop die no 3, and adhered the two together using Glue Dots.
adhered the dragonfly and the sentiment using Dimensionals.
touch was to adhere a sheet of Whisper White CS inside the card.

been extravagent using Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper on this card, but
I think it would still look good with regular Whisper White CS.
Unfortunately, my photographic skills haven't improved at all, and the colour leaves a lot to be desired, particularly the Glimmer Paper!
That's it for today. Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
