Pink Monochromatic card with lots of glimmer and shimmer for a glamorous birthday girl!

Hello, hello! 

Today’s post is a quick one to show you a card I made for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, where the cue is ‘Sparkle and Shine’.

I used an A2 panel cut out of Tonic Studios Black Velvet card stock which I stencilled with Peony Pink Nuvo Embellishment Mousse. The stencil is Tim Holtz Gothic Layering Stencil and I used it just along the side of the panel. The shimmer you get from the Nuvo Embellishment Mousses is amazing, if you like shimmer, you will love these! Tonic Studios also have a stunning collection of mirror, metallic and shimmer card stock. I’m a big fan!

The idea I had was to show a sentiment through a diecut so I cut out a stitched circle using a SSS diecut. I didn’t end up using that idea, instead I put a glimmery pink card stock behind it and adhered all this to a white card base. 

I stamped up ‘Friend’ from the SSS Stained Glass Love Stamp set on Neenah Classic Crest #110 card stock and coloured then in with pink Copic markers. This I cut out using the coordinating diecut and set aside.

On a slim strip of white card stock I stamped up ‘It’s Your Birthday’ with VersaMark ink, after dusting this card stock with my anti-static tool. The embossing powder I used is Altenew’s Rose Gold embossing powder and I set this with my heat gun. 

This card came together pretty easy after all these bits were done, it just took a quick minute to decide where they were going to go and then adhering them to the card base. I also added a few puffy heart stickers from Doodlebug Design Inc’s , the ones I used are called Tiny Hearts ,to the card and with that I was done.
