Today I am sharing a card that I made for the Altenew May challenge.Inspired by the beautiful ceiling picture,this is my card no 3.it took me some practice with glitter to get it right and other than that the card was easy to make .
I love visiting Tasnim’s blog cardsandbookmarks.com and I love all the cards that she has made in all these years, they are so creative, elegant and so clever and this card was inspired by one of her cards as well that she made using glitter..her’s is absolutely stunning.I wanted to try something different for the May challenge and so I thought I could use glitter with altenew stamps and so I gave it a try. And since foil is so in ,in cardmaing world.. I thought lets marry them both and the result was one shiny card!lol
It was also challenging to take pictures and I had to take several of them until I got this one.I still feel the picture does not do justice to the shinyness of the glitter and the foil. Its more shinny and prettier in real life. For this card I used the Persian motifs from Altenew and stamped it with gold embossing powder and then used the Martha Stewarts glue pen and colored with 2 shades of blue and gold(the colors in the ceiling pie,Tunisia) glitter.then embossed the foil paper using the 2 different embossing folders from darice and cricut and stuck everything on a blue cardstock which is my card base. Here is the close up of the card.
