Timeless Tuesday #225: Scallops--One More Card!

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Hello again! I had to make just one more card for this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. :)


Since I already posted one card today, I'll be brief. You can see my earlier Timeless Tuesday post here. And, you can find all the details for the challenge here.
For this card, I started with a paper napkin. After pulling all the layers apart, I glued the bird image to a piece of white cs with ModPodge, then after it dried, I coated the image with Sparkle ModPodge. Once that was dry, I treated it just like I would any designer paper. The sentiment I used is from the Life Lines stamp set, and is one of my favorites. The font is beautiful, and the sentiment is appropriate for just about any occasion. I sponged Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters, and Broken China) on a banner die cut, then heat embossed the sentiment, and added 2 Swarovski  crystals as an accent. After framing the napkin image with a square die cut, I layered it with the scallop die cuts, added more crystals, and walked away! If you've been around my blog very long, you probably noticed that I love distressed cards, so leaving this one so pure, was a little bit difficult, but I'm glad I did. ;)
In this angled photo, you can see that I curved the banner slightly. There is a foam dot behind the curve to keep it from getting squished.

And, I just had to show you all the sparkle. The napkin area is covered with glitter, and look at those Swarovski crystals shine!

Okay, I'm done for today. If you haven't already checked out this week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge, you should. It's fun, and who knows, you could win a prize!
Thanks for stopping by...again, and enjoy the week!
