I love making cards and over the past few days I have been enjoying playing with supplies and making cards :) Also, before I go on let me tell you that I am having a crafty giveaway which is open to anyone (international folks are most welcome) you can find all the details here -- I'd be super thrilled if you play along :) the prize will be a 25 USD gift certificate to any store you like.
Now onto the card, this is an A2 size side folding card.
I have used the nail polish marbling technique here with red, pink and grey metallic nail polishes and then die cut the marbled paper with 2 tag dies. The sentiments are stamped from the W & W - Wishing You with Evelin T Designs Stamp set. For added interest, 3 flower sequins were added using glossy accents along with a strip of white cardstock and white dots were made using a gel pen.
1. Iris white cardstock and purple cardstock 250 gsm
