Hello Bling Caardvarks Challenge
I made this card for Caardvarks Challenge 6. The challenge is to create a "Hello" card using Bling. I think I just may be hooked on using Bling in my cards and layouts after this challenge!
The card base is two squares of solid blue textured cardstock. I punched holes down the left side to bind the front and back of the card with ribbon. I use this binding technique to make brag books and scrapbooks, so I decided to try it out on a card and I LOVE the result!
I cut flower designs from a piece of patterned paper. Some are mounted flat and some are mounted with pop dots to give the card more dimension. I used blue and yellow glitter glue to add a little subtle Bling to the patterned paper cutouts. I added round blue and aqua rhinestones to the center of each flower cutout and one rhinestone dragonfly. I stamped and embossed "hello!" in white ink on the right side of the card.
Blues, greens, and aqua are so calming and pretty. Definitely my favorite colors. This card will be going to my aunt who loves dragonflies.
Time to submit my design!
