Country Flowers is one of the six new releases from Sparkle N Sprinkle this month.
To create the background, I used one of the inserts in the Tonic Studios Indulgence Thins Bottle Wrap die set. I die cut the insert three times across my cardstock, leaving a small gap between each cut. This is a tall die, measuring approximately 7 1/2" long. I didn't want my card to be that big, so after die cutting the three panels, I cut the cardstock in half and then lined up the two ends to make this shorter.
Once that was completed, I used the glueless glitter technique and applied Clear embossing powder and then Sugar Plum glitter. Since the insert only die cuts the holes out of your cardstock, I wanted a different color for my background. 2 1/2" Tear-ific Tape was applied to the back of the shortened panel and then I added Princess Anna Royal glitter to the front. Since the adhesive is recessed, you need to burnish the glitter into the openings with your fingertip.
The sentiment, which is part of the set was trimmed with my deckle trimmer and then I added a thin line of glue with a Sakura glue pen. Starfire glitter was then added to the glue. A strip of ribbon and a bow on the side are my finishing touches to this very glittery and sparkly card.
