Sparkly Friend

Here's a couple of new products I tried not long ago... the Sticky Cuts Letters with some Chunky Essentials in Red! Wow!! What a statement that makes!

The Sticky Cuts Letters are basically the same thing as the Sticky Strip - it's incredibly sticky. It holds that glitter and it 'aint lettin' go... know what I mean?! Well, I decided Bold and Bright was the only way to go on this card. The base is Real Red with a layer of Textured Only Orange on top. Then there's some Whisper White with some Old Olive Summer Picnic DSP. I scalloped the bottom of the Real Red strip with the Corner Rounder punch (guard removed) and then punched the small holes with the 1/16" Handheld Circle punch. The sentiment comes from the Level I Hostess set, For a Friend, and is done in Basic Black ink. I punched out three Old Olive flowers with the Three For You punch, and stuck a Real Red brad in the center of each one.

Now, when I showed this card to my husband, he said that he thinks it would look better if the Old Olive/Whisper White strip didn't go all the way to the edge. He thinks it should only go to the edge of the Only Orange... he may be right, but instead of dis-assembling the whole thing to find out, I thought I'd ask all of you what you think... ?? Should I hire him?? :o)

Very cute card. I really like the green paper down the left side. The pattern on it makes it look like it was crimped or large grosgrain like ribbon. Sorry, I just finished reading the rest of your post about your husbands comment. Well, from the photo, like I said, it almost gives the illusion of very large ribbon and I like it going over the edge.
