Welcome everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I’m over on the Pink & Main blog with a fun birthday card featuring the super fine glitter, flock and sparkling flock too! It’s definitely got bling and texture everywhere!
I started my card wanting to play with that really fun stack of gifts die cut from a few releases ago. I hadn’t gotten a chance and today a fun idea struck me. So I cut the stack from white cardstock 3 times and glued them together with EZ Squeeze liquid glue.
Next, I took a white panel cut down to 4×5.25 inches and the EZ Tear Tape that is 1/2 inch wide. I added strips of the tape at an angle across a few inches of the panel. I used my bone folder to really burnish the adhesive tape down and then removed the release paper one strip at a time starting with the center and working my way out. First, I added ocean wave super fine glitter, then I switched to sparkling fuzzy monster flock with glitter and finished the outside strips with fuzzy monster flock.
Next, I took another white panel and embossed it with the confetti embossing folder. I cut it in half at an angle and adhered it on either side of the flocked strips with liquid glue. After the glue was dry, I trimmed off anything hanging over the edge. This panel was so cool on it’s own, I was tempted not to cover it with anything! Haha.
However, there was the matter of that fun stack of gifts. So I started playing with placement and digging in my stash to see what I wanted to pair with it. That was so much fun! I ended up landing on this sweet duck from Party Animal. I stamped and colored him with copic markers, then used the coordinating die to cut him out. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment from the same set and used the cool sentiment strip dies in the Sunny Greetings die set to cut it out.
When I started laying out my design I thought the white stack of gifts was lacking. So I went digging again and found this awesome green glitter paper from the Spring Glitter paper pad, cut it out and added it to the top. Perfection! I added the gifts to the panel with liquid glue and put a giant acrylic block on top while it dried because of all the texture underneath.
Then I added the sentiment strip with foam and the duck with a combo of foam and liquid glue. Finally, I popped the whole thing up on a white card base with foam strips and added a little touch of glossy accents to the image for some shine.
