Ok, so a few weeks ago I attempted to make a shabby chic style card for my lovely friend Amanda…. just after I made that I discovered that I needed a congratulations card pretty quickly! My darling little brother popped the question to his lovely girlfriend…. and as a card maker, I HAD to send a hand made congratulations!
This card was super super simple to put together… although it does use a couple of stamp sets and a die set! But when your brother gets engaged I think that’s allowed. The background is the new Sheet Music background stamped in Crumb Cake onto Very Vanilla. I added some inking around the edges too, to add to the vintage / shabby effect. I actually added the same to a corner of the inside of the card too….
The sentiment is from Floral Phrases, stamped in Rich Razzleberry and heat embossed in clear onto Vellum.
That fabulously sparkly, gold glitter diamond was the whole inspiration for this card. I die cut the diamond using the Eclectic Layers dies in Gold Glimmer paper… but then, how to you attach something that detailed onto a card?! Well, Stampin’ Up! have that covered…. the new Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets. I LOVE these! They are super easy to use (and VERY sticky!) Just add the sheet to the back of your card stock before you die cut it…. and you have adhesive already on your die cuts! Awesome…. don’t worry, I have a video coming really soon!
