Hi Crafty Friends! I'm back today with a card inspired by Cheery Lynn Designs Sparkle & Shine Challenge. I bought some new design paper recently and I wanted to make something with muted shades. When I put the pieces together I didn't feel there was enough contrast so I changed the colors by adding in the blue-greens and the card came together.
The card base is a 5.5" blue-green. The gray patterned paper on top was cut with the Horizon Boutique Stacker Square. I used this die on my card last Thursday too. It's my go-to large square die as it always adds a bit of interest and elegance.
I cut two Horizon Fishtail Banners and glued them so only the tails would show. I wanted to give the illusion of one long banner. I then adhered the Fleur De Lis Doily Circle cut out of gold glitter paper. It's popped up with foam adhesive for dimension. A blue striped paper cut with the Pierced Stacker #3 was layered on top and then I added the Royal Scandinavian Tag #1 stamped with the sentiment to the very top. I added clear glitter glue to the sides of the tag. Last I cut gold corners using the extra corner included with the Royal Scandinavian Tag #1 and used one of the extra negative fleur de lis on the "fabulous" tag. I hope you can see all the sparkle and shine in the photos.
