Welcome Fusion Card Challenge fans! We have another fun challenge for you!
Oh my goodness, I just LOVE the blue and sparkle! When I first saw the inspiration photo, I thought of Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue ink and gold foil paper. Well, then I came across this pattern paper and went in a completely different direction!
The die is by Papertrey Ink and is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, particularly when die cut with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper by Stampin’ Up!. The white ribbon and the white paper of the sentiment balance each other well, while the blue of the sentiment and the paper is Sea Glass by Simon Says Stamp and is so soft and pretty! A few moonstone sequins and even more sparkle! A shout out to the very talented Michelle Short for showing me the trick of having a sequin peek out from behind a sentiment…so fun!
Design Tip: Sizzix Adhesive Sheets and the Precision Base Plate make cutting and layering intricate designs a snap! Just trim the size of adhesive sheet you need, add it to the top AND the bottom of the paper you are using and run through the Big Shot using the Precision Base Plate. The intricate die will cut perfectly, then just peel the adhesive backing and stick the layers together! If you use a gentle hand, you have some adjustment time with the adhesive to align the layers precisely.
And let’s not forget the inside of the card:
