Glitz Design - {gold ombre}

March 25, 2014

Hey there, blog friends!!  How are you doing today?  I am in Montana right now, just enjoying being around my family.  My grandpa's 90th birthday party was a huge success....lots of friends came to celebrate him, and almost our entire family was able to attend.  I consider myself so blessed to be 34 years old with grandparents who have been able to be an active part of my entire life.  They are both still sharp as a tack, and completely mobile.  I pray that I got those same genes!!!! :)   I watched them play cribbage against each other last night, and then I played a competitive hand of gin rummy against my grandma and barely squeaked out a win.  Lol- she will probably beat me royally in our next hand.

I wanted to share a card that I made for the Glitz blog last week...I'm just now getting the chance to get it posted to my blog!  It might be one of my latest fave cards....the ombre gold background just makes me smile a little bit!! Check it out:
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut three strips of gold glitter paper, and adhere to the front.
3. Layer a doily to the middle of the card.
4. Diecut the hello circle from a 3x4 card, then adhere to the front with foam adhesive.
5. Diecut the wreath from gold glitter paper, then adhere around the hello circle.
6. Cut a banner edge to a vellum strip, add the gold stickers to it & adhere to the bottom of the circle.
7. Cluster the flowers & giant rhinestone to the left of the vellum banner.
8. Add the deer diecut to the top of the flower cluster.
9. Accent with enamel dots to finish.
