Well, I have to say that this reveal card came together VERY quickly, all thanks to the gorgeous pre-colored DIGITAL STAMP! Yes, they can make us "non-colorers" very happy! I am still experimenting with markers and coloring, so when I can get a digi that's already colored, it makes me sigh relief!
First, let's start with the full supply list from SparkleNSprinkle:
So, as I said, this card is a quick one! Sometimes we just NEED a card to come together quickly because we don't have hours to spend on it. Here's how I made it.
First, I printed off the gorgeously colored Stella-Happy Meds DIGI796 image onto white cardstock. I trimmed it out and then accented various areas. I used Elephant Gray Flocking on her hair (how fun is that?!) and Fire Engine Red Glitter on some of the "meds". I used the Quicky Glue Pen to adhere both of the products - seriously, this is a MUST HAVE tool in your glitter tool box!
To make the glittery frame, I took my 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and adhered it around the edge of my cardstock. I removed the protective backing and sprinkled on the Inference Gold Glitter, burnishing well with my finger tool.
Finally, I adhered my first layers of cardstock using 1/2" Tear-ific Tape and the main image was popped up using Foam Squares for added dimension.
See how fast that came together? LOVE IT! Simple and effective. I hope you enjoy it too! Cardmaking is supposed to be enjoyable! The next stop on our blog hop is the UBER-talented ERET and you can find her blog HERE.
Until next time friends,
