Forever


In addition to lots and lots of glitters and embossing powder (not to mention rubber stamps), Sparkle N Sprinkle also carries chipboard from Want 2 Scrap.  I don't use much chipboard in my projects as I mainly create cards and I associate chipboard with scrapbook layouts.



I wanted to challenge myself to change this notion.  I started out by using the digi version of Happily Ever After so that I could alter the size of it.  Bridal glitter was added to the veil and Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the bouquet.  I also decide to use one of the soon to be released Neon Glitters Exhilarated! (a bright green).  This was added to the groom's vest and tie as well as the ribbon on the bride's bouquet.

This is also the color I decided to use on the "Forever" chipboard element.  I used the Glueless Glitter technique to adhere the neon glitter to the chipboard.  As you can see in the photo, it turned out a little darker than it did on the rest of the card.  In order to alleviate this, you can first heat emboss White embossing powder onto the chipboard and then add the color of your choice.

To finish off this CAS card, I added 1/8" Tear-ific Tape around the edges and applied more Exhilarated! neon glitter.
