Today will be all about shimmer and sparkle and I am sharing a winter themed card as long with some new products that I recently got and already love so much:))
First thing’s first, I started working on a watercolor cardstock panel and used my Mission Gold watercolors once again. I have to say that from all the watercoloring mediums that I have, these paints are my favorites; love the vibrance that they have, how they blend with eachother, the flow and everything! Best investment I’ve ever made:)
Once the paints were dry, I used an embossing folder (forgot how lovely these are) to add some dimension and interest to my background. The design of this embossing folder is simply gorgeous. Unfortunately it is discontinued, but you can achieve the same effect with any embossing folder that you have and customize your card for any season or occasion!
The products that I am featuring today are the NUVO Embellishment Mousse, a paste that is so creamy and shimmery and works great for adding hihglights on your project. I just used my finger to rub the paste on top of the raised areas that I got after embossing and made a mix of gold and silver pastes. The shimmer is gorgeous! They also apply easily as the paste is soft and they kind of remind me of the texture that the creamy blush you put on your cheeks has:)
Next I die cut some snowflakes from white cardstock and because I wanted to have all festive and sparkly, I covered them with glue and then poured clear glitter on top. For my sentiment I heat embossed in gold the Be Joyful from the SSS Big Scripty Holidays Stamp Set. To finish my card, I added several clear sequins here and there.
