Garden Whimsy Card

I haven’t used this set in awhile…and I just had to break into my new patterned paper fromSweetbabyjane  Jacksonbelle Embellishments.  This is the new Daisy D Sweet Baby Jane 8 X 8 paper pad in beautiful pink and green (imagine that!)…

Technique Tip:

After aging the pieces of cardstock and patterned paper, I sprayed the Glimmer Mist over the completed card, but before adding the button and ribbon.  I immediately dried the mist with my heat gun-by spritzing the Glimmer Mist over the whole card after the paper pieces are assembled, the moisture slightly warps and raises the edges of the pieces-which offers a more three dimensional look to the paper and further adds to the distressed look. I then tied a bow in the back of the button and adhered it to the card front with Matte Accents.

When using Glimmer Mist it is very important to shake the bottle until all the "glimmer" that settles to the bottom is completely mixed-if you don’t, it will clog the sprayer.  I use a cardboard box to spray in and to contain my "mess."  I’ve learned from experience that I’m not a "neat" Glimmer mister!

Thanks for looking!
