Just a quick post today. I wanted to share this fun card I made for my summer sister, Lorie. I love glitter, and love how sparkly this card is. To make one yourself, cut your white paper a little longer than you'll need it for your card, and then stamp the entire piece in a design of your choice, though a floral design seems to work best. Color your images, and run it through your crimper. Once a piece of paper is crimped, it will have a series of hills and valleys on it. Apply a line of glue to all of the "hills", and then sprinkle with glitter (I use Stampin' Up!'s Dazzling Diamonds). Then attach to card. I thought about doing a tutorial for this, but it seems pretty straight forward, no?
This should be titled "Secret Sister Card". I got the idea originally from the secret sister I had AGES ago on SCS - she sent a beautiful card to me using this design. Then I made this one for my SCS secret sister in the spring of 2007, and now am making one for another sister, though not a secret one this time! :o)
Oh, and how do you like that new Challenge Chick blinkie on my sidebar? I made that! Courtney asked me to make something for everyone to display, and that's what I came up with. How fun is that little chick?!
Anyhow, let me know if you have any questions and I'll answer them individually or on tomorrow's blog post.
Have a great day!
