Glitz Design - {Carpe Diem}

March 3, 2014

Happy Monday, blog friends!  How is your day going so far?  It is snowing here, &, pretty normal.  :)  Just a normal start to the week for me....not too much going on today.

This week on the Glitz blog we are showcasing one of our brand new collections called "Carpe Diem".  This collection is a blend of soft pink & soft blue, mixed with white & other is GORGEOUS.  I think it might be my very fave collection from Glitz this time around...and it mixes perfectly with my fave metallic these  Here is what I created!

1. Make A2 card from cashmere cardstock.
2. Cut vellum & dotted paper slightly smaller & layer at different angles to the card front.
3. Cut an ombre strip, & adhere to the left side.
4. Wrap white lace & gold trim across the middle of the card.
5. Cut the 3x4 journal card from patterned paper, & adhere to the right with foam adhesive.
6. Diecut the wreath from gold glitter paper, & the circle from vellum.
7. Stamp the sentiment to the vellum, cover in embossing powder & heat set.
8. Layer the wreath & sentiment circle together to the front, then accent with giant rhinestones.
9. Add stickers & enamel dots as shown to finish.

Card Challenges:
-Reverse Confetti March Sketch
-The Paper Players #185 - Thankful for Spring

I love the sentiments that are included in this stamp set from Reverse Confetti (linked below), and this one is my favorite of them all.  It's such a lovely way to say thank you for whatever you might be grateful.  And it looks so pretty embossed in glittery gold....tee hee!!

Well, that is all I have for you today!  I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your Monday!

Until later,

**The vellum was purchased at my local craft store.**
