I would describe myself as a 'subtle blinger'. I do like a bit of bling on my cards, but it tends to be in a subtle way, as opposed to glitter and glimmer. For me I like the shiny bits to be in the form of foiled papers, foil cardstock and a few rhinestones or shiny embellishments here and there.
Here's today's card to demonstrate my preferred 'bling level'!
I have used the retiring Parisian Beauty bundle and Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (both now only available while stocks last on until June 2nd) to make this split panel card. The paper has a subtle champagne foiled script running through it and I have carried that through by die cutting the Eiffel Tower in champagne foild cardstock as well.
The frame is cut from the NEW Ornate Layers Dies, which a part of the Ornate Garden Suite and available now to purchase early from the 2020 Annual Catalogue. The flower is die cut from the Parisian Blossoms DSP and also has some of the champagne foiling on it. To complete the embellishing I added a flourish from the Parisian Dies, and three Champagne Rhinestones (yeah - these are carrying over to the new catalogue). My greeting is from Itty Bitty Greetings, a really versatile set when you just need a small greeting. You can view all the products I have used today using the links at the end of the post.
Now it's time to visit my clever stamping friends around the world to see how much bling they like to dial up on the 'blingometer'. First up is Dawn Olchefske in Minnesota USA.
