Today we get to see a fun and easy way to combine gloss and sparkle on handmade cards for lots of gorgeous detail!
There are so many ways to add a little bling-bling to your projects and today Jamie is sharing a simple and quick way to combine gloss and sparkle on handmade cards. This easy one-two combo gives you tons of light reflection and with the pretty coloring under and over these finishes, you get tons of impact. Let’s check it out!
Jamie started by creating her crisp graphic background by cutting a piece of white card stock with our Mini Slimline Window Cover die and layered it over some pretty gingham patterned paper in a fresh green to set off her flowers. To let the lines of the die cut show a little more over the checks in the gingham, Jamie adhered the four corner squares and the two horizontal strips back into the die cut frame. Genius! She also saved the center piece from the die cut frame.
For her beautiful sparkly flowers, Jamie stamped the flowers from our Friends Forever set onto white glitter card stock with black ink. Using our coordinating Friends Forever stencil, she colored her flowers with Color Fuse Inks from Sets #1 and #6, using shades from Set #10 for the leaves. When she was all done adding the beautiful colors to her flowers, she cut them out with our coordinating Friends Forever die.
For her sentiment, Jamie stamped it with black ink on that center die cut piece in one corner. She then laid the Mini Slimline Window die over the die cut to line up the opposite corner to trim down the piece into a custom die cut.
