One Big Meaning - A Little Thanks - Kylie Bertucci's Blog Highlight for May!


Today I'm sharing my card entry for Kylie's Blog Highlight for May! Please hop on over and have a look at all the lovely inspiration and to vote for your favourites (hint! hint!)! The voting process is very easy! Just click on the the little heart in the corner! Thanks to Kylie Bertucci for this amazing opportunity to show case our creations and our blogs!

I love creating cards for all occasions, but Thank You cards are by far my favourite! To me a Thank You card is like sending everlasting flowers! This card is long overdue!

I was very much inspired by the Butterfly Basics card I created for the Global Design Project #033 Colour Challenge!

A Little Thanks goes a long way...

My Product List

Hints & Things

  • To stop glitter and embossing powder from sticking where it is not supposed to, I wipe over my cardstock with my Embossing Buddy before adding the adhesive, glitter or the embossing powder!
  • I cut two of the rose and leave thinlits (one in Cucumber Crush and one in Melon Mambo) and trimmed off the leaves from the Melon Mambo piece, before adhering it with a 2-way Glue Pen (this is just one of our Retiring Products that I will really miss)!
  • To hide the adhesive on my Vellum, I first adhered the rose (with the Glue Dots placed in the bigger areas) to the Vellum and then the Vellum layer to my glitter layer. This way I know where to hide my Glue Dots.
  • Basic Black cardstock makes the Gold embossed sentiment pop!
  • For a soft sparkle I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush pen on the rose die cut.
I love everything about this card! Please let me know what YOU think by leaving a comment! 

Take care!
