Sweet Baby Blush

I know you are thinking- Beth, what's come over you? There are incredible announcements and challenges over on Papertrey, and you are making...baby cards?? Lol, yes, the work must go on!

I just love putting glitter on embossed images; this time I used a glue pen on Sweet Blush that was embossed with a Sizzix folder, then poured clear glitter on- makes for quite a glittery card!
I can't use a lot of glitter on the cards, and it has to be anchored very well. Don't want to risk a mom opening a card with a wee babe in her arms, and having any glitter fall into the eyes or nose of said wee babe- that could be a disaster! This amount, though, worked well. I used a light pink and new leaf green color of Art Glitter; it's very fine and came off of the rest of the card very well. Added a tiny paper pieced heart from a printed Papertrey paper, tied on a Sweet Blush ribbon, and there she was! A Sweet Baby Blush card!


As you read this I am lying on a beach chair on the beach with my laptop and sipping mint...oh wait, no I'm not! I'm in the cabin in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the snow and cold and tossing logs on the fire...

Ahh, well, time away is time away, and life is so good to me! Enjoy the rest of the Papertrey release, and I 'll see you at the party Sunday night!

Beth I am right there with you on the beach---just finished cleaning up the snow for one last time, would love to see the mailbox but it is MIA under a drift! Enjoy your time at the cabin and have a few more mental vacations while you are there!!

love the card btw!

LOL! this is a very sweet card Beth!! Enjoy the cabin, you know I'd rather have that than a beach any day! I don't do so well in the sun...I'm a kind of 'glow-in-the-dark' white shade and it would require a month of solid bathing to promote me to cream...
