Gel Pen and Glitter Card


Hi Everyone! Well, just a random card I made today. . .I saw a card in the Paper Crafts magazine and it was a very, very simple card but it looked really pretty. I decided to create a similar card but for some reason my card didn't look as pretty. Mine just looked simple. LOL!

I decided to cut out a part of the scrapbook design and stick it on to the card but it still looked "blah" so I outlined the images on the scrapbook paper with a gel pen. Well, it didn't look very nice because it looked like "I" outlined them and not a very good job doing so. To "enhance" the outline, I added Stickles and finally, I liked how it turned out. It looked so much better with the glitter.

So. . .in the end, I didn't end up with an "oh so simple card"! LOL! It just wasn't in the cards!


Card Detail:

Paper: Autumn Leaves
Ink: Sakura gel pen
Accessories: Stickles glitter, Fabric Ribbon, Masterpiece Studio sticker (sentiment)
