Well, it's the 25th of the month, which means there's nine months left until Christmas! ;)
I'm just kidding! (Although, it is true....)
No, it means it's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
This month's challenge was all about "high gloss."
That's right, we were challenged to create something that with some shine to it.
I had been hoping to get my new order in time for the hop.
I had a plan and it involved Wet Paint. ;)
When it didn't arrive yesterday, I knew I had to make something from my stash.
I went online looking for a little inspiration and found it in
I love the mix of patterns and colours,
so I decided to take my cue for these in making my card,
while still including some white.
I used some Heidi Swapp patterned paper as my background.
On it, I stamped a sentiment from KIS: Birthday in versa mark and heat embossed it in black
to make it glossy.
I die cut the slide frame several times from orange zest card stock and
stacked them together for some dimension.
On the top die cut, I stamped the coordinating Slide Frame stamp in versa mark
and heat embossed it in clear embossing powder.
I die cut the slide frame one more time in white and used the centre as a backing
for my lovely Heidi Swapp acrylic butterfly.
Here's a photo taken at an angle so you can see all of the shine.
I'm also linking this card up to The Card Concept Challenge #6,
which is to create a birthday card.
The style of my card is Clean & Layered.
Thanks for looking!
