Some Bunny Loves You with January Garnet Sparkle Blend
Hello Crafty Friends - Annie here with a cute Valentine's Day card.
I am using the beautiful Sparkle Blend - called January Garnet
This Birthstone collection is stunning.
Garnet is a vibrant combination
of gorgeous burgundy, bright red, magenta
purple, brown and pink in a wide variety of sizes
and shades sequins. This Blend shimmers and
changes as you look at it, Just like the facets of the Gem it's named after.
So, let's get started.
First I gathered the materials I needed for the card.
Lawn Fawn - My Silly Valentine Stamp Set _ Sentiment and Hearts
Beautiful Moments Stamp Set by Angela Poole - Bunnies
Flourish Heart Die (was gifted to me - I don't know the brand)
Recollections Brand heavyweight cardstock in white & Pink
Acetate or Clear plastic (from packaging)
StazOn Ink - Jet Black
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir Markers
Gelly Roll Gel Pens - Black & White
Jot Brand Foam Adhesive Thick and Thin
Stotch 3M Tacky Glue
Tools: Scissors, Trimmer and Tim Holtz Stamp Platform
I started by die cut the flourished heart into the white cardstock making sure not to remove it from the cardstock - if you do just return the pieces. I then adhered the acetate to the back of the die cut heart. I then turn it the panel over and trimmed a 1/4" all around the white panel. Next, I stamped the sentiment in the center of the heart. Set aside to dry.
I then stamped and colored the bunnies. I then fussy cut them out.
Next, I added some details with my black and white gel pens.
Then, I flipped the white panel over and added some foam pads
making sure to place them really close together around
the heart so that the sequins don't spill out.
Then, remove all the cover off the foam pads, Next, make a small pile of sequins on the pink cardstock. Then, gently place the white panel over it. Press down making sure that the sequins don't get trapped in between the foam pads. For a final touch, I stamped some hearts on the white panel.
Now, the card is complete!
