Sticky Cuts for a card with a bit of bling!

Each time I place an order I try to include a product I haven't used before. That way I can provide a better service for my customers as I know the product range in depth and it also pushes me beyond my normal crafting comfort zone. This time it was Sticky Cuts. These are great for anyone who likes a bit of bling (like me).

Now I'm a real Dazzling Diamonds fan, it's one of my absolute favourite products but the Sticky Cuts work better with the other glitters as they're opaque. Be warned - you do get rather glittery with this duo of products, great if you have a party planned, lol.

Stamp set: Sincere Salutations
Cardstock: Orchid Opulence, Basic Black
DSP: Groom
Ink: Basic Black
Punches: 1-3/8" Circle, Large Oval
Other: Sticky Cuts Sweet, Circle Ice Rhinestone Brads, Fine Cosmo Glitter (Orchid)

I stuck the sticky flowers to the black cardstock and then rubbed the glitter into the adhesive. The flower centres were kept to use another day as I would be covering them over with the brads anyway. The flowers were punched and matted. To keep the bling going I added another rhinestone brad to the sentiment.

This card has only used a tiny portion of the two 12x12 Sticky Cuts sheets and a little goes a long way with the glitter too. I think these are a fun addition to my craft box and handy for quick cards with a wow factor.

Hope you like them.
