Good morning peeps! Today I have the third and final design I created using my Happy Wishes SAB (Sale-a-bration) stamp set, Tutti Frutti Designer Series Paper and Red Glimmer paper. I was excited to use just one sheet of the 6″x6″ Black&White striped dsp for all three designs. Woohoo!
For this card all I had left was a couple strips of the DSP. I layered the DSP and red glimmer and really liked the look so I thought two would look cool together, a little extra pizzazz but not too over the top. [grin] I trimmed 3/4″ from the long edge of the card front so one combo layer was placed on the front edge and inside edge.
Of course, I had to include the Color Coordinated Embossing on this sentiment as well. The glimmer paper has such a strong presence it called out for embossing. After embossing the “happy” I fussy cut it out and thought it would look even better with a red glimmer frame surrounding it. Yes……I’m a glutton for punishment. I confess that I don’t mind fussy cutting it has a relaxing effect on me. [grin] After fussy cut the red glimmer it didn’t feel like there was enough to ground it. So……I cut a red glimmer oval with my Layering Ovals Framelits and placed the sentiment on top. Ahhhh……that made me “happy”. Lol! I used plenty of glue dots to keep all three layers together.
Finally, I added the “you make me happy”. This was color coordinated embossed AND fussy cut as well. What? I did say I was a glutton for punishment. Lol! I had a hard time getting the red glimmer to pop in the pics, all three cards are prettier in real life.
OH……I almost forgot. I added a couple rhinestones for even more bling. [giggle] I colored them with my new Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend marker. It colored them perfectly without wiping off.
Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great weekend and have enjoyed and found inspiration in these three designs. Happy stamping!!!
