Sparkle N Sprinkle Nasturtium Acetate Card [05.25.2016]


Hi, from Sparkle N Sprinkle Designer Chris! I love the Nasturtium stamp sets for May. They are gorgeous. For today's card, I used the Nasturtium #2 stamp set [00-783P5]. Here is the card that I made with this beautiful stamp set.
I stamped out the Nasturtium panel on white cardstock, and colored it with Copic markers. I also stamped a second image, and colored some of the leaves and flowers on it, the same as I did on the original panel. I fussy cut out those extra flowers and leaves, and then added glitter to everything! I used the Sakura Glue Pen [Quicky] to draw on some glue, and then sprinkled on Luau Green Velvet (microfine) Glitter [GM2004] on the leaves, Exulted Glitter [G1132] on the pink flowers and Energized Glitter [G1133] on the orange flowers. I popped up flowers and leaves with foam tape and adhered them to the full panel. Here is a photo of the panel and all the sparkle from these glitters.
I used Sparkle N Sprinkle's Clear Embossable Acetate [99602] as the card base. This acetate is incredibly versatile and is thick and perfect for a card base. I scored the acetate, and then dry embossed the front panel with a dotted embossing folder. I adhered the front Nasturtium panel onto the card front using 3/4" Double-Sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT05]. I also cut a cardstock panel the same shape and size and adhered it to the inside of the front card panel. This both hid the adhesive (since acetate is see through), and covered up the backside of the copic colored image.
Here is the inside of the card. I stamped out the incredible sentiment and trimmed around it. I then layered that onto a larger piece of white cardstock. Then, I edged the sentiment panel with 1/8" Double-sided "Tear-ific" Tape [SAT02] and then burnished in some Jasper Blue Velvet (microfine) Glitter [GM2012] with my finger tool. This framed the sentiment and made it pop!

Here is a closeup of the glitter trim around the sentiment panel. I also backed the panel on the backside of the card to help cover up the adhesive that can be seen through the acetate.

This stamp set is gorgeous, and the Nasturtiums are beautiful, and these sentiments are really sweet. I know you will love it!
Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day! 
Chris
