Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s begin by creating our shimmery background using the Vicki Boutin Cosmic Watercolors. We will apply a rainbow of colors onto some Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock using a nice wide brush. We can overlap the colors for a nice, blended look. Once we apply the chosen colors, we can add a second layer of color to darken the background up a bit.

Next, we can create some additional backgrounds by applying the inks directly onto our glass media mat. We will just randomly add these colors and then place the cardstock over the top and pick up the inks. This will give us some pretty backgrounds which we will be using to die cut some butterflies and a “thank you” sentiment using the Ai Gift Card Pocket Set (5811).

Once backgrounds are completely dry you will be able to see the beautiful cosmic shimmer look…so pretty!

Now let’s take the rainbow background panel and using the Sizzix 3-D Textured Impressions (Geometric Flowers) Embossing Folder we can run it through our die cutting machine. Wait until you see the gorgeous background this creates; you are going to love it!

Next, we will create a white embossed panel for the front of the card, but we want to make sure that it lines up perfectly with the shimmery embossed background that we have already created. I will give you a few tips and tricks for this in today’s video!

Let’s quickly assemble all of the layers using some pretty pink cardstock and let’s also add some pearl gems to the center of the butterflies. These are very elegant two-tone pearls with Lime Green and Light Pink!

Finally, we can add the sentiment to the inside of the card. This finishes off the card nicely and brings a bit of that shimmer to the inside of the card!

This card was inspired by the current Ai “All That Glitters” Blog Challenge which is to create a project that is glittery, shimmery, metallic, or has sparkly gems or sequins or anything else that is fun and glittery! We would love to see what you create…so please join us in this shiny new challenge!
