I started with a piece of kraft cardstock and some natural twill ribbon. I spotted some metal sheets in my sash and decided to try embossing them in my Cuttlebug. Wat a result1 I love the effect, it reminds me of old fashioned tin ceiling tiles As such I thought I would age it a bit by sponging on some black Staz-on.
Once this was done i thought I would play with some more ribbon and Glubers. You can read about my original Gluber flower here. I chose red, pink and black this time, for no other reason that thats what struck my fancy at the time. I used various Gluber sizes and added rhinestones to the centre, then kept adding and kept adding! I'm usually stingy with rhinestones, but this time I felt like splurging.
Once done I decided the kraft cardstock and twill ribbon I had originally chose wouldn't go with the direction I was heading in. I chose some black cardstock instead, and instead of adding more ribbon I decided to heat emboss the sentiment on a strip of black cardstock. I trimmed the end with banner points, and adhered the piece with foam squares. I of course had to add more rhinestones. :)
This card turned out so blingy that it almost looks like jewelry! What do you think?
