I'm back with a new card for the Papertrey Ink eighth anniversary celebration. Today's challenge is to use only metallics and neutrals. This had me stumped a bit at first because I don't have any metallic paper. Glitter to the rescue!
I laid down strips of 1/2 inch Scor-Tape in a diagonal pattern on white cardstock and poured White Gold glitter over top. It's such a luxurious color! Then I adhered the panel to a black card base so the sparkle would really pop.
I pulled out an untouched stamp set called Wonderful Words: Together and stamped a small sentiment on a white Building Blocks die cut. I glittered up a tiny heart die cut from Heart Prints using Yellow Barite. It pulls out the bits of gold in the stripes. I also wanted the heart to really stand out from the background. I cut the word "together" out of black cardstock, doubling it for a little dimension. Then I simply glued it all in place.
I really love how elegant this is, especially in person. I hope my pictures capture the glorious sparkle. It's a perfect wedding card, or perhaps an alternative to all the usual red and pink for Valentine's Day. You can see other challenge cards here.
