Shine bright like a diamond

A few posts ago I showcased some "blingy"sample cards that I had made for Meiflower, well today I thought I would share a couple more. As per the previous blingy cards, I must apologise for the rubbish photo for the second card, the weather was awful the day I took it and I didn't have time to faff around as I had to get the cards off to Meiflower for a craft show she was attending.

I put the sentiment together in Photoshop using various fonts - for the word "Diamond" I chose a very narrow font and printed it in a very pale grey colour using it as a template for placement of the stick on gems, the diamond image came courtesy of Mr. Google. I also printed "Shine" in a light grey colour then went over it with a glue pen before sprinkling with glitter, silver grey polka dot ribbon and a diamanté buckle finished it off.

This design was cased from a card I saw HERE,  mine is square, the sentiment was computer generated and I used stick on gems instead of die-cut sequins, all arranged on a Little B square die-cut background.

Thanks for popping in,
Colette xx

LOVE both of these stunners Colette... I've done the printing in pale grey and using glitter over... it looks so effective! And that second one.... well, pop my address on and post it to me cos it's GORGEOUS!!!!! What?? You sent it off to Mei??? hehe! Well I'll just have to admire it when I got to shows and see her!! I do love how you did the words... I may have to 'borrow' that idea and pick your brains font-wise etc!

Big hugs
