A Pair of Dazzling Cards

Hi Ladies! It’s Bea back today. I created some cards with the new American Crafts Alpha and Bling collection. I was so excited when I saw the shiny and beautiful adhesive rhinestones and glittered alphabet stickers in this collection. They are perfect for decorating scrapbook layouts or cards.


These cards were so easy to put together with a punch, white cardstock, and the colorful Bling adhesive rhinestones. The beautiful dots inspired me to create a circle design adding smaller and smaller dots from outside to the center. For adding title, I used the black glittered alphabet stickers from the collection. I punched a circle from white cardstock, added my title and used foam tape to adhere to the center of the card.


My second card began with a base of purple cardstock and a white cardstock, which I trimmed into square. I drew a heart shape to the center, and started to fill the heart with different sized and colored rhinestones. I added a sticker on the top. I adore the lovely colors and shine of the heart.


The beautiful pearls and rhinestones match perfectly with scrapbooking collections.  With the third card, I was drawn to the pretty adhesive pearls, and found that cute mermaid from the Stay Colorful collection.  Mermaids and pearls… so perfect!


I cut a circle out of the patterned paper and arranged all the pretty pearls around. I then adhered the mermaid sticker with a glittered acrylic heart shape and an ephemera piece in the circle. Lastly I arranged XO glittered letters to the center of my card. I also cut an envelope from patterned paper, and added a piece of pear for every little swan.  


Thank you so much joining me today! I hope that you’ve been inspired to make some cards to give to your love ones!
