Nothing Is Impossible

Nothing is impossible with a little glitter either. Glitter is a great way to glam up a card and make it extra special for a gal friend. I really like the Silver and Gold POW Glitter Paper that I used on these two cards. Both are great colors. Not too bright or bold, yet pack a pretty punch of sparkly color.

The first thing I did to create these cards is to watercolor the flowers and leaves on Savoy Bright White 100% Cotton Card Stock (118lb). I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink and water colored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

For each card base, I used the Cougar White Invitations that are pre-scored and sold in packages of 50. These are A7 or 5×7 folded cards. I’m trying to make more A7 sized cards because I think they are more substantial especially for the recipient. It’s challenging though since many stamps and dies are created for A2 sized cards. 
To add additional interest, I used the Savanna Woodgrain Card Stock in Limba as part of my design.
After water coloring the flowers and leaves, I die cut them. Next I added Wink of Stella in clear to each of the petals. For the orange flowers, I wanted to add gold glitter but the Wink of Stella in Gold was too dark for my taste. It actually changed the orange flowers to more of a brown color. To tone done the color, I squeezed out a little bit of Gold Wink of Stella on a craft mat and used the Clear Wink of Stella to apply a touch of gold glitter to the flowers. Before applying to the flowers, I mixed the Gold and Clear together then tested on a piece of white card stock.
Below are my finished cards with “glittery glam” and hopefully messages of encouragement and support for whoever receives them. 

Thanks for stopping by! Let me know if you have any questions. Be sure to check out CutCardStock on Facebook to get the latest updates on sales as well as additional inspiration from the design team. 

Until next time. . . . inky hugs!!
