Flourish Thinlits Glimmer Spray

#INKcredibleTips in this post

This card was fun and easy to make  The sparkle of the glimmer paper, combined with the beautiful lines of the Flourish Thinlits, and the soft colors create an elegant feminine feel to this card..

Using alcohol markers you can easily color the rhinestones, which is great. There's no need to buy tons of different color rhinestones when you can color them yourself.  

Stampin'UP!'s alcohol markers are called Stampin'Blends, and they come in sets of 2 for each color, one light and one dark. The dark Rich Razzleberry was used on this card.  Its a beautiful compliment to the Soft Sea Foam color of the card base.

The sentiment and the floral stamp are both from a new set called Meant to Be which will be available in January from the Occasions 2019 catalog.  Catalogs are available on-line. Ask me how to get a hard copy. One reason I like this set - its not just Valentines.  Check out the sentiments in the image below - perfect for weddings and anniversaries too, woohoo!

That sweet little floral spray looks good on an envelope too! No naked envelopes, right!

While this is one of those cards that's pretty easy to figure out just by looking at it, there are some tips and tricks to pass along for working with detail dies, especially when cut from glimmer paper.  If you've ever had trouble gluing detail die cuts, watch how I do it in this video. Quick and easy.  There are 8 quick tips and tricks in this short (6:35 minute) video.
