Sparkling up Your Cards October 06, 2015 07:00
I love to look at the details of things and try to find a way to put my own spin on them. Christine joining you today and I am going to show you how I did just that with a couple of JustNick files and cards! I added my own sparkling details to the cards!
As I was looking at the Retro Sqaure Background file I thought it would be neat to do some kind of a shape with the grid you see in it! I have a stockpile of rhinestones so that was the perfect medium to use! After figuring out the shape of the heart I started building from the top and bottom (so it would be close to center) and filled in from there. I considered putting the rhinestones inside the little squares but opted for the vertices instead.
I cut out a second copy of the Retro Square in pink and filled in a border using the inside pieces. I also cut out a coordinating sentiment from the new Card Sentiments 2 Set.
I have a soft place in my heart for scallops - I love how they look on cards and will go to them whenever I have the chance. This card uses the Scallop Background. After cutting out the scallop background I attached it to a piece of vellum.
I then added a rhinestone to the center of each scallop. I love how sparkly this turned out but I also think it would be really neat with little pearls!
Keep checking in all week for more card inspiration!
