This month on the Ruby Rock-It blog we are showcasing both the new Glitter cardstock as well as new Franchville card and envelope sets. These come in 4 colour sets with 50 cards and envelopes per box. There are pastels, brights, neutrals and metallic sets.
Today I have focused on some pastel pink and purple card bases with white Bella! Glitz cardstock.
I thought I would share a short tutorial on how I came up with the pink card. The purple one was made in much the same way. I didn't have purple flowers, so I sprayed these white ones with purple paint mist.
First, I cut a panel of white metallic card and embossed it. I then gave it a light spray with pale green paint mist.
I distressed the edges, then layered the embossed card onto white glitter cardstock, then adhered both to a pale pink card base.
Next, I added some mesh tape and wrapped some white seam binding around one side.
I die cut a fancy label from the same white glitter cardstock. It cut perfectly the first time. I die cut another smaller label from white cardstock and adhered it with foam dots, and attached a sentiment sticker to the front. I also added some pieces of gauze to the top and bottom of the die cut.
These flowers come pretty flat in the packaging, and I wanted some more dimension, so I used a metal nozzle to add some glue to the flower centre, then squeezed the base of the flower (from the back) to form the flower into a more dimensional shape. Once dry, I adhered the flowers in place, along with a small ribbon bow. I added a couple of small roses to the top right of the label.
Finally I tucked in some small punched leaves to the flowers, and added a few more drops of green paint onto the background.
I followed the same process for this next card, using different colours.
