Gettin’ caught in the rain – If your not into health food – If you have half a brain……………….
That’s what I felt like when I was making this card. I received a rather large Stampin up order on Saturday and of course what did it include but numerous paper packs…….I am such a paper junkie – I just have no self control when it comes to a pretty piece of paper. So I made this card for my girl friend that’s Deployed. I’m so proud of her for leaving her family to go out into the unknown – So I’m doing my best to send her at least a card a week. This is what I came up with….
So this is the first time I’ve made a card this large – it’s 5×7 , but the paper is so bold and the image is big enough I thought I could pull it off. So I started with Real Red and layered it turquoise piece from Flock Together by Stampin’ Up the main paper is from the Pink Flamingo Pack. The image is from the Such a Tweet set that’s been retired for a few years. I just love the Peacock image though. I stamped it with Versa Mark on white paper PaperTrey card stock and embossed it with red EP, that didn’t seem like enough so I used some glue ink and a paint brush and brushed over some areas and then added pink extra fine glitter, that still didn’t seem like what I wanted to I painted glue into the middle and then added some yellow ultra fine glitter, then I sponged the edges with regal rose, the I cut out the image with my nestabilities and layered it up. I used my new pinking shears nesties, I stamped the sentiemnt from Bubble Queen and cut it out with my Oval Nesties. I added some bling, some Primas, brads and a little Poppy Red ribbon from Papertrey Ink. I was pretty pleased with the results.
