I love the elegance and beauty that glittered cardstock can add to any project! Today I am sharing a Congratulations card that is suitable for many occasions. Look at that glitter shine!
For this project, I used different colors of metallic cardstock (Ruby, Virtual Pearl, and Pink Quartz Blush) as well as the Gold Glitter cardstock.
I started with using a 3D embossing folder to make a gorgeous impression on the Pink Quartz Blush cardostock. I LOVE these 3D embossing folders! They make such a beautiful, fun background and it’s so easy! (Make sure you consult your die cutting machine manual for the appropriate sandwich for your machine.)
Look at how beautifully this metallic cardstock embosses!
I then used these heart layering dies with the different metallic and the gold glitterstock – when assembled, this heart is gorgeous!
To really set this background off, I die cut a thin frame from both the pearl embossed background and the gold glitter cardstock. I cut it out of the embossed background so I could replace that piece with the gold glitter cardstock. I think this adds a really nice finishing touch that ties everything together.
I find it easiest to put the outer piece on the card base first, then put a thin line of glue around the inner piece and then fit the thin gold frame in place. Then the inside rectangle should fit perfectly into place.
To finish the card I used foam squares to attach the heart to the background and added a gold glitter “Congratulations”
Mixing metallic and glitter cardstock really step up any project! I’d love to see what you create – tag me on Instagram – @purple_puppy_papercrafting
