I am off to my parents for a couple of days and was pushing out some cards so I can post them soon.
This one I had the idea for and my order from Winnie and Walter Arrived - yayyyyyy.
I die cut the joy at the same time that I used the rectangle stitches die. I cut a base just under the size of the die cut rectangle. I then added double sided tape to this small piece of cardstock in strips that touched. This is the really strong double sided tape with the red waxy top that you remove to end up with clear tape. I must have had it a while because I found I had a few lines of very faint red on the tape that I took no notice of and have shown up in a couple of photos.
Anyway once the tape was attached I added the negative of the joy die cut on top and the circle from the 'o'. I then added these gems in lines, using two different sizes and as many of my bluing green that I had in these sizes. I had other blues and greens but only had the bigger sizes so they didn't work.
I loved how it turned out .
I then used the Misti to add my sentiment 'to the World' which had a bit of minor surgery first to remove the 'joy' part.
IRL this card is just stunning, a real sparkler. The photo will never do it justice, so you will have to trust me on it.
I would like to enter this:
I'm not sure if this is CAS enough but it truly was a simple card
and has lots of white space so I hope it fits the bill ladies.
Using gems is definitely in my collection of Favourite techniques.
Love sparkle and bling and shine.
Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.
