FINDING JOY

Here is the latest Cuttlebugged card and matching envelope - Joy.
Card dimensions are 6 1/2 inches w x 5 inches h.




Materials: Stamps - In full bloom, Small script (SU), CS - Cocoa, Sweet Leaf, Twilight, White (CTMH), Ink - Cocoa, Sweet Leaf, Twilight (CTMH), Cuttlebug embossing folder - Textile, sandpaper, waterbrush (CTMH), 2-way glue, prisma glitter (CTMH), Liquid glass (CTMH), ticket corner punch (SU), dimensionals (SU).


After stamping the flower image (insert the word 'joy' into the stem of the In Full Bloom flower), I used a waterbursh to watercolour the flower image on the white CS and matching envelope. Using the 2-way glue, I applied glitter as I wished to highlight the flower petals and leaves. NOt sure that the photos picks up the glitter, but it is really quite sparkly in real life! I then cut out the flower - after it dried! - and put it on the card with dimensionals to raise it up.
Note that the embossed textile texture was sanded to reveal the white inner core of the CTMH cardstock. I like this effect, as it highlights the texture quite well.

May you find Joy today in whatever you do!
Until next time.....
