Add a little sparkle to Floral Essence!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features soft colors and a little added sparkle! There are so many ways to add a little sparkle to your cards and crafts, but using glimmer paper is the easiest no matter if you use a punch or a die! I paired the Sparkle Glimmer Paper with the Perennial Essence Suite to create this easy card for any occasion.

The base layer is this design from the Perennial Essence DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front elements, you will need a Pearlized Doily, 12” of the Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon, enough of the Sparkle Glimmer Paper to punch out the Starburst Punch and the ½” Circle Punch, and 3 of the Perennial Flower Punch from the Petal Pink Vellum cardstock with the flower heat embossed in White Emboss Powder, coloring the back with the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend:

To create the flower, stamp and heat emboss in white the flower stamp on the smooth side of the Petal Pink Vellum cardstock, then punch out with the coordinating punch. I used the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends to color in the flower petals a little bit and punched the center out of one with the ½” Circle Punch. I adhered the first two flower petals together with liquid glue and then used glue dots to adhere the single petals around the back. This will give your flower a fuller look without the bulk:

Arrange the organdy ribbon across the base layer DSP, adhering with liquid glue across the middle of the ribbon to the DSP:

Adhere the punched glimmer paper to the doily and then use liquid glue to adhere to the middle of the ribbon, adhere the ½” circle to the flower, and the completed flower to the glimmer paper:

This completed piece is adhered to a Rococo Rose cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”and scored at 5 ½”, and I decided to add three of the silver metallic pearls to the flower middle:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment and flower are stamped in Rococo Rose ink, the flower center is stamped in Petal Pink with a little Wink of Stella added, and the flower is colored in with Light and Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends:

Isn’t this a sweet and sparkle card?? There is enough room on the card front to add a sentiment if you want to change it up a bit to make it a little more personal! While the coordinating colors for DSP is listed on the back, don’t be afraid to find another coordinating color, like I did with Rococo Rose!!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
