Lovely Inside and Out bundle sneak peek 2

Hello and welcome. Here is the second installment to the Lovely Inside and Out bundle sneak peek.

I have based the card inspiration from the Global Design Project Sparkle/Bling Theme #GDP083 with the use of gold foil, embossing, thread, sequins and was a fabulous way to dress up the set.

Sending Hugs and Kisses card 

• Gold foil polka dot from Pop of Pink Specialty designer series paper. It is retiring sadly so get it before it's gone for good.
• Gold foil sheet for the 'Hugs' sentiment - nested with Layering Circles framelits.
• Gold thread looped around underneath.
• Basic black cardstock for top folding A2 card and for the white heat embossed sentiment. It has been die cut out using complimentary layering circles framelits.
• Hugs window frame die cut twice to create thickness using gold foil sheets.

Thanks, Friend card

• Gold heat embossed blooms from Lovely Inside and Out stamp set on basic black cardstock,
then die cut out with Stitched Shapes Oval to match the 'Friend' window frame.
• Additional gold heat embossed blooms added and die cut using layering circle framelits to add dimension to the existing blooms.
• Friend window frame die has been nested with Stitched Shape Oval frame using the new glossy cardstock.
• Mounted on black fun foam for an even raise.
• Polka dot basics embossing folder used on the card base for added interest and texture.
• Gold thread and sequins used for bling.

This is the inside of the cards - gold heat embossed to reflect the front. Using gold heat embossing and the complimentary framelits and embossing folders truly steps up the card by adding so much interest. 

Here are the combinations of what I have created using Lovely Words thinlits, As you can see, there are so many ways it can be used. Not only can it be used to die cut a window frame with the wording, it can be used with out current dies to dress it up. The words can be cut out and used on it's own and also the negative space can also be used to give a different look altogether. It truly is versatile and using specialty papers and bling just adds wow.
