Love that Glimmer Paper!

In Friday's class the ladies were shown how to colour the Glimmer Paper to a  colour of their choice, so you can add a whole heap of  'bling' for not too much effort. A base of Baja Breeze was used and this was topped with a piece of Whisper White which was run through the Big Shot Twice, once to do the lacy edging  from the new Delicate Design Folders, then again by placing the edge of the new Lacy Brocade embossing folder to the top edge of the lacy embossed area and run it through . A piece of Bashful Blue Ribbon was placed around the centre of the card and secured by adhesive to the back and then the whole piece to the card base. The larger frame was cut using the Glimmer paper and the smaller frame was stamped and coloured with Stamp n Write Markers first, then run through the Big Shot as well. To colour the Glimmer paper, the ladies simply sponged the area with Baja Breeze then attached the stamped image to it using Snail. Dimensionals were used to lift the Glimmer Paper Framelit from the card base. Two small flowers were punched using the the four leaf flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. These were attached using Glue Dots and then a small pearl was placed in the centre of each flower. The insert of the card was Whisper White which had the Lacy Edge to the bottom. A lovely card, and really not too much too it but it certainly has a lot of WOW about it. Till next time.......
