 An Elegantly Simple Card!!!
Crissy has outdid herself again~~I wish I could think like her :)
I needed a 25th wedding anniversary card.....Whola!!!
First off~~I printed the Floral Heart digi quite large. Softened edges with TH Fired brick ink and Cut out with SB Scallop Heart--then did the cracked glass technique.  I don't have reinkers so........ I had to put my thinking hat on~~Hmmm.  Decided to trace cracks with Copic #24 and then took a little blender solution on a Q-tip to remove excess from enamel and it worked~~YEAH :D  It still looked alittle dull to me so I grabbed my versamark again and covered with Hallographic embossing powder and.....WOW does it sparkle Now!!!!!!!!   Popped up with foam tape and added Love sentiment that I made with shiny silver paper and my SLICE~~~I can't get enough of this fun machine :D
IRL it is so Gorgeous that I kept the card simple and only added ribbon with an elegant brad!!
Trying to catch the beautiful sparkle and shine of both paper and Image
Shows glassiness (is that a word)??? and dimension
The inside is all hearts~~~once again smaller version of Crissy's floral heart which was glitzed up with hallographic emboss powder only.  The other hearts are a $1 stamp from Michael's inked with TH spun sugar and the sentiment is SU.

Mini Gift Box

Being it was a snowday~~got about 13 inches of snow with high winds~~My Boss decided to play it safe for patients and employees ;)   Took the day to catch up on laundry, cleaning, made cookies and of course played in craft room!!

Created a Gift Box!!! Started out as a wooden box.........painted with some Extreme Rose glitter acrylic paint and It didn't cover as nicely as I wanted so I then painted over that with Black Cherry Twinkling h2o's and Whola~~ I Love the outcome :D
Doesn't the box look quite distressed or vintagy~~Nice :)  Used my Maggie Mini Angel and colored her with copics and the stickles caused her wings to look distressed--oh well~~she is so cute anyway :)
Floral decor: Roses are nestled on Magnolia doo hickey doily petals and WO leaf.  Added crystal spray and blinged roses and Magnolia doo hickey dragonfly with Viva Decor Holo Iridescent glitter liner pen and stardust stickles.  Complimented with pearls and Modern Romance Love Charm.
Very sparkly and shiney!!!
Inside: After painting added decorative touch with pink swirly paper cut out with SB deckled rectangle nestie and added SU whimsical words sentiment~~"happiness Always"
