I told you a little about this card last week and I am so excited to share it with you!! I made it in August for a Control Freaks Holiday Catalog Swap and have held it this whole time. Why? Well, I also entered into the “Demo It” category for the Stampin’ Success monthly contest for November. For those of you who are not demonstrators, Stampin’ Success is a magazine that we get from Stampin’ Up that helps provide inspiration and loads of information. Well, imagine my joy when I was notified that this card was chosen as an Honorable Mention for the category!! I even won a free stamp set!!
This is a screen shot taken directly from the magazine. Cool, huh?? Of course I took some of my own before sending it in so I want to share that too.
The hardest thing to capture in the photo is the shimmer. My picture shows it a bit more. After stamping the angel from Rejoicing with You and the beautiful sentiment from the same set, I sprayed the stamped panel with shimmer mist made with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint and rubbing alcohol. I simply mix up about 1 ounce of regular rubbing alcohol (drug store variety) and about 15 drops of the Shimmer Paint. Add more or less to your desired shimmer. Then just spray it on!! Lots of sparkle without the mess of glitter. The Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder was used in the background and I added the new Tulle Ribbons tied with Linen Thread and a Bronze Button. This is a great card to make in bulk (I know because I made 30 for the swap) and it still has a wow factor! How exciting that Stampin’ Up thought so too!
I’ll be back Wednesday with a new layout from Freshly Made Sketches. This week our guest Narelle Farrugia will be hosting the sketch! Hope you have a great week. Thanks for stopping in!!
