I love making cards and over the past few days I have been enjoying playing with supplies and making cards :) Also, before I go on let me tell you that I am having a crafty giveaway which is open to anyone (international folks are most welcome) you can find all the details here -- I'd be super thrilled if you play along :) the prize will be a 25 USD gift certificate to any store you like.
Now onto the card, this is an A2 size landscape style top folding card. I wanted to keep the card design simple and let the marbled panel and the die cut sentiment be the star of the show.
I have used the nail polish marbling technique here with light bluish, reddish-pink and white metallic nail polishes and then die cut the marbled paper with the Gina Marie stitched rectangles die. This marbled panel was adhered to a black mat which was further adhered to the blue card base. The sentiment is a die cut from the W & W cutaways. To add interest and some sparkle, star shaped sequins were added to the card, 3 in a cluster on the bottom right and 3 near the sentiment.
1. Iris white, blue and black cardstock 250 gsm
2. Winnie & Walter Cutaways- cheers
3. Old Nail Polishes for nail polish marbling
4. Clear Star Shaped Sequins
5. Glossy Accents
6. Gina Marie Designs stitched rectangles die set
7. Tissue Tape
I am playing along with the following challenges:
The Gossip Column with Taheerah Atchia No. - Marble (I have used nail polish marbling here)
Three Challenge with Shay (There are 3 sequins on the bottom right and 3 nail polishes have been used for the marbling)
