2nd Post of the Day
Back again with my 2nd post of the day, where our new challenge over at Charisma Cardz this week is 'Bling, Bling, Bling!' This is quite a picture heavy post, but I have compressed the pics so I hope they dont take too long to load.
I have been meaning to make one of these 'Magic Cards' since I first saw this brilliant tutorial by Marianne over at Stampartic and whilst it took quite a bit longer to assemble and decorate than a normal card, I really enjoyed the whole construction of it. :)
I used one of my favourite stamps from Crafts & Me called Turn to Hesed. She is almost all glittered with very fine Art Institute glitter in various shades but you cant see so well in the pic.
I used MME papers and decorated inside and out with Cheery Lynn Dies and MS Doily punch.
I always cover brads on the inside of cards with Card Candi - it works a treat! :)
The back is also decorated fully with MME Papers, Cheery Lynn Dies and the MS Doily Punch.
The flowers were Ebay and the white dotty ribbon is Joanna Sheen and I have attached a heart charm to the flower spray.
