CAS with Sparkle and EXCITING news!

 I'm thrilled and honoured to have been invited to be


Here is the "CAS with Sparkle" card I created.


The card is a tall A5 top fold.

I used a new-to-me Glitter Tape and I have to confess that I am addicted to it already.
The silver sparkle along the side of the card is a strip of the tape along the card base with the front panel of the card overlaying it, so that only a small strip is visible.  I applied two strips of tape to some white cardstock (being careful to butt the edges together) and die cut the butterflies and sentiment.  I aligned the middle of the butterfly to where the two strips joined and you can't see it, it is that smooth it looks like it was from a single, solid piece of glitter cardstock.
The bling flourish has the perfect silver sparkle to match the tape and makes it look like the butterfly is fluttering by.

Here are a some more photos showing the sparkle and dimension.
It's amazing (and frustrating) the difference between the "natural light" and "flash" versions ... "in-real-life" is between the two.

My favourite is silver, it is always so elegant.
Although my engagement and wedding rings are gold,
they are white gold, so they look like silver

  1. Well we asked for sparkle ....this is stunning! I'm always moaning about how my glitter doesn't show up in pictures, but I think I'm just doing it wrong because your sparkle shines brightly! I love how this is ornate and glamorous while still being CAS. Thank you for being our wondeful Guest Designer at Inkspirational.
