Sunshine Of My Life - Quick Quotes
Hi! I'm sharing a bright and sunny card featuring some of my favorite Quick Quotes supplies and Want2Scrap bling today! Quick Quotes is teaming up with Want2Scrap for the month of July, so check back here and visit the Quick Quotes Blog often for project inspiration featuring plenty of bling!
This card came together in just a couple of quick and easy steps and the Want2Scrap bling really helped give my card a polished look with very little effort!
Step One: Trim a piece of cardstock to 4.5" x 5.5" to create the base of the card. Using the two largest rectangles from the Spellbinders Nestabilites Lattice Rectangles Die Set, cut two rectangles to layer on top of the card base. Ink the edges of all papers with PowderPuff Chalking Ink.
Step Two: Select a vellum quote from the Babies/Kids/Family Itty Bitty Box Set to fit inside the smallest rectangular paper. Loop a piece of ribbon around the largest rectangular paper and tie into a bow. Secure all the layers of paper to the base of the card and add Want2Scrap Nestabling Lattice Rectangle Blue & Green Rhinestones. Note: The Nestabling Rhinestones hide the thin line of adhesive that I used to adhere my vellum sentiment to my card for a seamless finish!
Step Three: I received a beautiful set of Want2Scrap Lavendar Pearls, but they did not match the color palette of my card. To change the color of the pearls, apply a coat of watermark ink and sprinkle with embossing power in the color of your choosing. Apply heat to set.
Step Four: Embellish the card to finish. I added my colored pearls from the previous step to dot the "i's" on my vellum sentiment. I also added a Want2Scrap stick pin and a small flower.
