I hope you had a great Christmas and are ready to ring in the New Year. Time has gone by so fast and here we are with the last Elizabeth Craft Designs Design Team Challenge for 2014. Our theme this month was Shimmer Sheetz and Glitter. The card I have to share with you today uses embossed and sanded Shimmer Sheetz and Silk Microfine Glittered flowers for a stunning result.
To create this card fold a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card in half to form a standard A2 size card base in white. Cut a red mat to 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to card front. Cut a piece of Purple Iridescent Shimmer Sheetz to 5 x 3 3/4 and emboss with the Bouquet Embossing Folder. Sand the embossed side to bring up the white core of the Shimmer Sheetz for contrast. It's quick to do and looks fabulous! Adhere to card front. Adhere a piece of Transparent Double Sided Adhesive Sheet to red cardstock. Diecut 2 flowers and one large and small leaf cluster from Flower set 2. Glitter with True Red Silk Microfine Glitter, polish with your finger to bring up the shine and set aside. diecut another flower from white cardstock. Diecut Happy Birthday in Red from Karen Burniston's Happy Birthday Pop Up. Cut a strip of white cardstock 5 1/4 x 3/4. Cover with Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter and polish.
To assemble: Stack the flowers as shown below and adhere on pop dots over white glittered strip. Add leaves and sentiment. Add glitter dots to center of flower and "i" in Birthday to complete.
