We’re going through a mix of weather today. The surrounding areas are having freezing rain, sleet and snow. At our house were getting freezing rain which is a bit scary to travel in. So………I decided to stay home and keep warm and toasty and share today’s sparkly “purple” post. Lol! It also just happens to be the fourth design from my October Class.
I decided to go with a long-narrow card for this design (3″ x 5-1/2″) in Elegant Eggplant……because……..the chevron strip on the left was just long enough to fit without having to stamp and line-up twice. Yes, sometimes there are reasons why a design is sized or laid out the way it is……..just a tip for ya! Stamp the entire front with the “dotted” stamp from High Five in Elegant Eggplant. This stamping gives a very cool dimensional quality. Stamp the chevron image onto a Whisper White strip then trim way excess. Next add a Bermuda Bay Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border strip to the left edge with just the scallop peeking out AND the all important scant 1/8″ Silver Glimmer paper strip to the top, then adhere to left side of card. Another TIP: Stamp the Chevron image onto a #2 Whisper White Oval at the top and bottom (the narrow chevron goes to the inside) in Elegant Eggplant. Stamp “You’re Fabulous” into a 3/4″ Whisper White strip in Elegant Eggplant, adhere to stamped oval and trim sides. Take two #2 ovals cut from Bermuda Bay and cut one in half horizontally and the other vertically. Adhere the horizontal oval halves to the back of the Whisper White oval placing so you have a 1/16″ +/- reveal, then repeat with the vertical halves. Next adhere the layered oval with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a #3 Silver Glimmer oval. Finally, adhere layered ovals to the right side of card and top with a small rhinestone. I just love the design with its bright color combination and sparkle. We’re all fabulous just the way we are.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a great Friday Eve!
