All that Glitters is Fab!

Yes!  I did it!  I finished all four challenges on the Heart 2 Heart blog this month!  I didn't even need a resolution to do it, either!  This final challenge was sooooo up my alley.  Glitter, baby!  I decided to make a wedding card, because every bride sparkles at her wedding.  ;)


Did anyone else find their glittery projects hard to photograph?  The light was bouncing every which way, lol.  Anyway, I went with the For Always paper to give the card a classy feel.  The black and white patterns in this one are absolutely divine!

I LOVE this shape from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I would have to say it is my favorite even (or maybe one of them!)  I cut the one shape on White Daisy at 2.25 and the other one to mat it on our new glitter paper at 2.5.  Then I inked up the edges of the white one in black ink for a dramatic effect.  The Mr. & Mrs. sentiment is found on the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  I cut it at 1.5 inches.


This bow was part of my older CTMH stash, but I simply needed to use organdy ribbon, and we just don't carry any currently.  I think it would be great to color coordinate it with the wedding colors if you know them!

A great product we DO carry, however, is waxy flax!  Oh how I love it for tying up buttons--no need to lick the flax to get it through!  ;)  These black glitter buttons are one of my favorite new embellishments for the Spring/Summer Idea Book.  Perfect for this card too!


Can you see the scalloped edge of the glitter paper?  I cut this edge from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge on my Expression 2.  If I remember correctly, it is cut at 1.25.  I attached it with my ATG and then used the Black Shimmer Trim to cover the edge.  :)


Here is a close up of the card closed.  You can see the back of the card peeking through the decorative edge.  I think it is a great look for a wedding card.  What do you think?


Thank you, Heart 2 Heart for all the fabulous challenges this month!
