Today is my daughter's 10th birthday. Double digits!!! I had to user some Sparkle Blends for her birthday card, of course. This lovely Blend is called Icicle. It's frosty and sweet and she loves it. Although truthfully, she loves ALL of the Sparkle Blends!
I just bought a die set from Avery Elle which apparently is old, because I can't seem to find it online. But, banner dies are readily available from many companies, if you're looking to recreate this card, you should be able to with little trouble. To cut out the banners, I first cut the one in the center, then the sides. I used a Diagonal Stripe Stencil from Simon Says Stamp with Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. My sentiment is from Gina K Designs.
Behind my shaker windows, I used Lawn Fawn's Pixie Dust Sparkle Cardstock. I LOVE that cardstock! I also used Blue Shimmer Paper from Craft Creations. These papers really add a ton of shine in the shaker windows. They also make the Sparkle Blends really stand out! I made my card base out of gray cardstock.
