Hi Stamping Friends!
I made this card last week with the intention of showing one way to use the glitter tape that was available during Sale-a-bration but it sold out before I could write my post. Another product that could be substituted is our Glimmer Paper. A small strip on both sides of the card would give it just the perfect amount of sparkle!
The real star of the show though is the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper! It’s so pretty that you really don’t need much else to make this card. After adding the sparkle tape, I cut a 3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of DSP and adhered it to a piece of Watermelon Wonder that measured 3-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. My sentiment is stamped with Memento Ink using one of the Circle of Spring stamps. I used the 1-3/8″ Circle punch and adhered it to a Mint Macaron 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle. My paper piercer was used to poke holes around each scallop. (Edited: Earlier I stated the incorrect size Scallop Circle punch – it has been corrected).
After I photographed the card I thought it could use a little bling and that version can be seen below. What do you think? Which version do you prefer?
