I have a sparkly card to share today! I have been super busy with my 3D shop so I haven’t had a lot of time to craft, but I make sure to find at least a few moments a day to create at least 1 card – even if that means doing more simple type cards that are discussed in the above mentioned course. However – this one was not quite as simple and took me a while to complete!
Before I go any further…if you want to learn how to make simple, pretty, fun, easy cards to give to your friends/family I highly recommend this course! Inspiration comes from everywhere, and you would be surprised how many different cards you can create with just stamps & ink! Link here! https://altenew.com/products/clean-simple-boutique-cards
So onto the card! This card is hot off the crafty table! “Shine like the Stars!” Part of the above course does cover basic foiling – but alas – I do not have foil! I watched the video anyway and decided to substitute with gold glitter embossing powder & sequins! (But tomorrow I think I’ll hit up the Hobby Lobby and see if I can at least find gold/silver foil!)
So I’ll go over the materials I used below:
- Slimline Card Base (my first ever!)
- Deep Blue Seas Crisp Dye Inks – Altenew
- Halftone Stars Stamp Set – Altenew
- Tiny Stars Stamp Set – Altenew
- Black Ink
- Versamark Embossing Ink
- Gold Glitter Embossing Powder
- Mixed Sequins
I stamped the larger halftone stars first using the set of inks above to get an ombré effect (I am obsessed with that!) Then I added the smaller stars with embossing ink and embossed those with the gold sparkly glitter embossing powder. Next I added the tiny stars in different areas around the edges, and finally I topped it off with a few sequins. I added the “Shine like the Stars” sentiment at the very end.
That’s it for now – maybe more to share tomorrow! Stay crafty! ⭐️
