Here I am! I had every intention of popping by yesterday … but … just didn’t get here! I won’t bore you with the details … I’ll just say … working from home is tricky when the kids are on holidays!!! LOTS OF INTERRUPTIONS!!! (Happy … but … FRUSTRATING interruptions!) 😀 😉 I hope you don’t mind another CASE-ed card today??? Gav is doing photos at a friend’s wedding … that is coming up on Australia Day … and this is what I made for the Bride & Groom! (SSShhh … Julie … don’t let on I have posted this on my blog.)
I’m not sure if you can see the sparkle on this card??? I took heaps of pics … but just couldn’t seem to catch it in the photos! I used my Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz on the embossed background … and was thrilled with the beautiful white shimmer. If only I had thought to do the same to the flowers before I attached them to the card!!! Because I had added the rhinestones BEFORE putting them on the card … I was a little stuck. They definitely needed some shimmer … so I ended up painting some Frost White Shimmer Paint on them. (Carefully avoiding the rhinestones! … Not an easy process!) The FWSP is not quite so “white” as the VSSS … but I was happier with the shimmery flowers rather than the flat white.
The gorgeous inspiration for this card came from Andrea Ewen (note: Name on recipe is mis-spelt … but link is correct!) Andrea’s flowers are actually “table confetti” with an embossed edge on the flowers! Just such a lovely elegant touch … so why don’t you check out her original card … HERE!
Well … heaps of work to do … c ya’all later. Hugs xxx
