Dream Valley #21 Sparkle

DV 21 3

Our challenge at Dream Valley is for you to sparkle! We have a prize on offer of a couple of stamps from Lili of the Valley.


For my card I started with a stamped image on acetate. So sorry no idea what the stamp is called as I unmounted it and forgot to label it! I glittered onto the wrong side of the acetate as this protects the final card from shedding glitter, which is one of my pet hates.

The card is a bracket edge and I ran it through my BS with a texture plate for the embossing. I did run a very pale lilac inkpad over the raised areas, but it’s not really showing up here. I also cut two Marianne shapes, one in glitter card and one in white and layered them onto the centre of the embossed card front with the glitter panel on top. I made a sentiment on my pc and added a couple of flourish die cuts to the back of it.

I am never sure which picture to blog, one looks too dark the other always looks too bright, wish I could get it somewhere in the middle, lol

For the inside, because of the cut away edge it was difficult to put an insert so I made a plate for the greeting to go on, to match one of the mats on the front of the card, and with the same font as the sentiment on the front.
