Create a Shimmery “Sending You Love” Card

by Kyriakos Pachadiroglou

A big card, with a big message written on a small charm, can best describe the theme of this card. Using a lot of sparkle both on the background and on the white flowers and leaves, I enhanced the details of the background color and the plain whiteness of the floral decoration. The Sheer Shimmer Stix worked so nice on both the large surface of the stripes stencil and adding detail on the edges of the floral embellishments avoiding overuse of spraying shimmer on the paper and in places not required.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 30min


Step 1

Use a sponge dauber to apply the VersaColor Pinecone ink on the stripes stencil on the craft card, covering just above half of it on the long side.

Step 2

Leave the stencil on the same place and apply the shimmer using the Sheer Shimmer Stix, easily and with no mess!

Step 3

Use the Sheer Shimmer Stix on the edges of the paper flowers and leaves to add detail and color an 8-inch long piece of cotton cord with it.

Step 4

Color the chipboard with the VersaFine CLAIR Glamorous and add sparkle with the Sheer Shimmer Stix.

Step 5

Fill the metallic charm center heart with the irRESISTible Pico embellisher Morocco color and let it dry.

Step 6

Set the craft card and the corrugated black paper on the card base using the Tear It! Tape.

Step 7

First place the cord and the chipboard on the card.

Step 8

Continue adding the flowers and the metallic charm.
