This week's challenge at Stampin' Royalty is to Bring On the Bling. That's what I hope I did with this card.
The outside of the card has some bling in the form of rhinestones on the front...
but it's really the inside that has the sparkles.
Unfortunately, I took this photo in the evening, so the bling does not really dazzle as much as I would like. I cased this idea from Gretchen Barron.
I used the Christmas Tree pop-up die and embossed each piece with the Petals-A-Plenty impressions folder. Then, I used the brayer (oh yes, I did) and applied versamark ink to the raised impression. The pieces were dipped (drenched) in glittery embossing powder and heat embossed. Like Gretchen's tree, I created a tree skirt with the medallion stamp.
I took another stab at creating this card; this time with gold glow smooch spritz as the bling.
This second card also has rhinestones on the front.
Thanks for stopping by!
