Today I made a very special card for a special lady – my mom! Happy Birthday!! Along with loads of dimension, I used Adhesive Dots Small and glitter to create a sparkly flower center. Would you use this technique? Give it a try!
Let’s start with the flower die cuts. I die-cut, embossed and then stencil through the die with ink to highlight its embossed design.
Next I embossed a 4.0 x 5.25 inch piece of dark pink cardstock with an embossing folder to make my A2-sized (4.25 x 5.50 inch) card panel. Cut and embossed a leafy vine in green cardstock.
I wanted a different kind of dimension so I cut the dark pink card panel one third from the bottom to leave space in between to stamp my sentiment. Using Crafty Foam Tape – Black, it give the panels a lift.
Using the two piece card panel as my guide, I lined up the sentiment in my stamp placement tool for a perfect imprint.
Now my favorite part! Making those glittery flower centers 🙂 I placed an Adhesive Dots Small in the center, rub and lift off liner gently. Then pour on the glitter over the adhesive dot, press and shake off excess. SUPER EASY + FAST!
Here’s another look…
