Crazy Card Party Challenge #4 - A Little Glitter

Our Challenge today is being brought to you by Kathryn!  She has asked that we use a little glitter on our project!  Here I used my Cricut to create the frame, rolled flower and the leaves.  I used glitter cardstock for the green leaves and then I added glitter to the edges of the flower.

  1. From White Cardstock Cut the frame found on Page 53 of the Small Talk Frames & Tags cartridge using S+F1+27 from white cardstock at 3 ½”.
  2. Stamp the word Thanks in Black ink on the bottom of the frame.
  3. Using the cuttlebug and the embossing folder emboss only the 2 sides and the top of the frame (not where the sentiment is).
  4. Cut a piece of the flowered patterned paper to 3” x 3 ½” and glue to the right hand side of a top folding card base.
  5. Stamp additional sentiment below the patterned paper
  6. Pop dot the white embossed frame on top of the patterned paper piece.
  7. From  Green Glittered paper cut  the leafs  found on Page 65 of the Cindy Loo cartridge using the Border Feature at 1 ½” and trim apart to make two sets of leaves.
  8. Cut a rolled flower from the Artiste Cricut cartridge (pg 54 Accent 2) from the light pink patterned paper at 3” and roll the flower using some tweezers.
  9. Glue the top of the rolled flower with some glossy accents and spread it around with your fingers then apply some Glitter to the edges where the glue is.
  10. Add a pink button to the centre of the flower.
  11. Glue the flower and the leaves to the centre of the frame and round the top left and bottom right corners
