Do you love glitter? Me, too. It's especially good if you are as"boo-boo" prone as I am in creating cards. Glitter covers a multitude of mistakes. :-)
How not to start a blog post: **apologizing**. I promise in real life this is a pretty card with all the sparkly glitter, shimmery embossing powder, and reflective mirror cardstock (CS). No matter what I did in photographing it, or what magic was used in my software, this card remained aloof and uncooperative. It just would not glisten, sparkle or reflect! (no squealing allowed) :-D
Mirror Cardstock creates phenomenal effects! Standing at an angle so the camera and my face didn't reflect in it was a bit difficult. In person, the ornament is very shiny and pretty. Sparkle N Sprinkle carries several colors of mirror card stock - available in individual sheets, or in packets
To further torture you, here is another tragic photo which shows a little of the glistening Gold Tinsel EP used in the layer around what is supposed to be TRUE GREEN cardstock LOL. It's fun converting plain, inexpensive cardstock into amazing designer cardstock! Honest! it really is pretty in person LOL - just take a piece of cardstock decide how much will show as a mat or layer, apply VersaMark Ink in that area, pour on your EP and heat. The rest of the CS remains as it was. It also makes adhering the layers a little easier because the center is not "coated" with a resistant covering.
OK, your torture is now complete LOL. Seriously, I cannot apologize enough for how poorly this card photographed. Hopefully you know me well enough to know that if I say it is absolutely, glisteningly pretty, you know it's true.
