Congratulations Card using stencil & glitter paste

Hello there!

I hope you had a lovely weekend?

We've had a really productive one! Somehow we managed to squeeze a lot into those couple of days. Am I rested? No!! But hey.. the sun is shinning, the kids are in bed... good times! So I got to make a few cards that I'd like to share with you... and this one is made for the Virginia's View Challenge #2 (stencils).

I used a cream cardstock for the base. I sponged the mid area and the edges with the Walnut Stain Distress Ink, made splatters with water and stamped a script stamp by Prima all over the background. I took a piece of a dictionary page, tore it to the size and stenciled my rose with the green and the red glitter frosting  paste by GlitzCraft. The edges were sponged and curled and the piece was adhered to a piece of vellum. I curled and tore it here and there too. I stamped my sentiment with the same ink, cut it into a banner shape and sponged the edges. It was popped up on a dimensional tape, but I curled it a bit too. Here's another photo:

I hope you like it. :) There will be a couple of other cards today so keep an eye out and let me know what you think ;)

Thank you for stopping by! Best wishes,

  3. Gorgeous card, Ingrid! The dictionary page looks like it burned, and the glitter is perfect for contrast. Love your card.
