It's my turn to share a project over Altenew Card Blog.
Today's post is about adding that special shine to your cards. For me, playing with embellishments is one of my favorite pars of card-designing process. The Craft-a-Flower Primrose is a fabulous set to create small and intricate flowers. Thanks to its size, it is easy to arrange the layout.
Here are 5 super quick ways to embellish your cards.
I started out to create my own floral paper. I quickly scribbled the Hawaiian Shores Brush Pens and Fine Tip Pens across the Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock.
1. Add Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray to your paper
I sprayed Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray over the inked color paper. Once the ink dried, I lined up the dies from Craft-a-Flower Primrose . The easiest way to assemble is to arrange the dies in the same orientation for easy identification.
For the last parts of the assembling the flowers, I die cut the pieces with Dazzling Diamond Glitter Cardstock Set. Instantly, you have gorgeous flowers with shine! Next, I took the cardstock and added a framed textures with Simple Frame 3D Embossing Folder.
3. Apply Must-have Glitter Gel Pen Set
Noticed the silver dots? I added some subtle silver shine to the white paper. This is a subtle way to add designs and glitter. The Must-have Glitter Gel Pen Set simply flows and dazzles!
4. Add those Metallic Thread Set
I made a small ball of of thread and tugged it under the flower cluster. The Instant Dimensions Foam Tape secured everything beautifully.
Make a Statement Sequins
The white sequins are nearly invisible on white cardstock. However, that is the idea of adding sequins as they provide the extra subtle shine and interest.
