Glittered Ornamental Pine

One of my favorite looks is glitter!  How about you?  Here's a card we did in a recent Christmas card class.

Ornamental Pine Glittered Circle

I stamped the pine branch and cones and then inked it all over with VersaMark ink.  I poured Iridescent Ice embossing powder over the entire image and then heat set it.  The end result is a beautiful glittery image.

It is so difficult to capture the glittery goodness but I hope the picture helps you to imagine it.

Fun Folds Friday

It is time for another fun fold friday!  I know this is long overdue.  I received this fun fold idea in a swap and unfortunately I cannot find the original card.  I know I put it  somewhere safe.  Here's my take on this fun fold.

Fff bloom with hope 3

FFF Bloom with Hope

FFF Bloom with Hope 2

1. Cut a 4" x 12 piece of DSP(designer series paper).  The original card was 4-1/4" x 12".  I chose to make it a little smaller so I could get 3 card bases from one sheet of DSP.

2. Score at 3-1/4" and 8-3/4".  Make a pencil mark at 2" along the 4" side.  Make a diagonal cut from the 2" pencil mark to the edge of the fold.  Repeat on the other side and the other end.(see picture below)

FFF Bloom with Hope 4

3.  Fold on the score lines.  Apply a little adhesive to one of the points.  Fold and secure over the other end.  The point will overlap and lay flat.    I decorated the front of my card using the sentiment from Work of Art and the images from Bloom with Hope and Stippled Blossom.  The card stock pieces measure 3" x 3-1/2 "(Cherry Cobbler cs) and 2-3/4" x 3-1/4" (Whisper White cs).  The flower was colored in with Cherry Cobbler and Daffodil Delight Blendabilities.

4. The inner card pieces measure 4" x a smidge less than 5-1/2" (Basic Black), 3-3/4" x 5-1/4"(Cherry Cobbler) and 3-5/8" x 5-1/8" (Whisper White).  

Hope you enjoyed this Fun Fold Friday!  Remember you have just a few more days to take advantage of the great deals on both the Weekly Deal and the Stamp, Stock and Save promotion.  Here are links to the Weekly Deal and the Stamp, Stock and Save promotion.  Don't miss out on these fabulous deals!
