Friendship Flowers

Friendship Flowers - SNS
front, closed

Friendship Flowers is one of the new stamp sets just released from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Today I created a fun fold card using Spellbinders Hexagons dies.  As you can see in the photo below, the opening is a Z fold with a window on each side with the image in the center of the card.

I created frames for the window openings using two sizes of the nesting hexagons, which were die cut from Sticker paper.  Once I had the frames die cut, Luau Green velvet glitter covers the exposed adhesive.


Friendship Flowers4 - SNSAfter stamping and coloring the image with Copic markers, it was fussy cut and adhered to another piece of Sticker paper.  The remaining adhesive was covered with Lavender Iris glitter for a shimmery background.  A Sakura glue pen and more Lavender Iris glitter highlights various flower petals as well.

I used the Glue-less Glitter technique to create both sentiments, using VersaMarkClear embossing powder, and more Luau Green velvet glitter.  You can watch our SNS You Tube video, to see how to do this fun and easy technique.

WOW, Anne! I love the way you framed out the windows on your card. Magnificent! So sorry to have been MIA on my visits but have had major computer problems and just got my new computer up and running. Still learning a totally new operating system (grrrr) and am still missing a couple of major software programs which I need for my photographs and my printer. Haven't had time to comment on everything you've done during my absence but I'll get caught up one of these days (in about 5 years!) :-D

What a lovely card! I love the way you've created the apertures & I am now itching to try the no glue glitter technique you've just described!
