card slump


I was trying to complete two challenges on demo challenge forum this week.
1) to use a new stamp set for demonstrable card- snow swirled
2) for workshop wow, to go back and use the original 48 colors in SU color palette. (here bravo burgundy and always artichoke)
For me, I wanted to try to make an easy card to use for upcoming Holiday Stamp-a-Stack. This was easy, but I think it needs some more bling somewhere, perhaps some dazzling diamonds? Or maybe just some gold brads on starburst?
Feedback???
BTW-Christina I got your tag. I will try to get to it and tag some others this weekend :}

I think a little splash of dazzling diamonds always make a card a little more special! Great job with the challenge :)

Kathy - this is LOVELY! I just bought this set so I can't wait to play with it too! Tfs!

Chrissy D said...

I agree with Marilyn - add a little DD and that will Bling it up!

I think simpler is better for SAS. If I did anything to it, I might sponge the sides of the white/vanilla? sides. At least that way it wouldn't cost a penny more! Still, the same it's a great, great card for SAS. I know your customers will love it!!!

Love the card, Kathy! I'm so glad you are enjoying the demo challenges. I agree that some dazzling diamonds would work well on this card!

Beautiful. I agree with the other posters about adding DD. Love the scallop edge on the bottom.

This is beautiful Kathy! Love the colors! I agree that dazzling diamonds would really set it off, but I also think it looks great just like it is =).

This is a great card. I agree with the others. As my 4 year old says when I'm frustrated with my card and say it needs something "mom, it needs glitter"

I love the colors you chose and this stamp choice is great.

When it doubt glitter always works for me! lol!
If I can't find a place on the image to add glitter here is what I do:
1) sponge the edges around the image.
2) use my 2 way glue pen to apply glue to all four edges...not on "top" of the paper...but the edges.
3)dip it into the glitter
Voila!
