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!
